As a passionate photographer, I love to infect others with the “photography virus” and inspire them. I teach both children and adults. Opening people’s eyes and heart to beauty and stimulating people to form their own opinion from a young age have been an important incentive in my career to work as a photography teacher next to working on photography assignments and my own projects. I think that I am what you might call a humanist or an idealist; I believe in the creative and positive potential of each human being.

In 2005-2006 I followed a teaching training course (Beroepskunstenaars in de Klas) of the Amsterdam University of the Arts to acquire sound educational and teaching skills.

In the past I have given workshops, for example, for the Educational Department of the Museum for Photography ‘Huis Marseille’ and the Amsterdam Public Library (OBA). I currently teach at the Teekenschool at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, to both adults and children. From January 2019 I will teach at the FotoSchool (part of the Foto Academie Amsterdam).

Here is my (Dutch) website for my photography teaching to children http://www.mooivoorkinderen.nl/ (to see only with browser Firefox+ flash plug-in)


In addition to taking classes in a group, I also offer the option of one-to-one coaching. My fee is 75 euro an hour ex 21 btw & travel costs. The location can be my place in the North part of Amsterdam or another location of your choice.
