I started teaching in 2001 when I was invited as a guest teacher by a primary school.
So I organized a workshop pinhole photography where children build their own cameras, learned the basics and exhibited their work afterwards.
I really enjoyed working with young children and since then I visited many schools for pinhole photography workshops and customized photography projects.
A few years later in 2004 I started giving basic and advanced photography courses in my studio.
Soon I added a landscape photography workshop and a short introduction course to the list.
From 2006 until 2018 I was a teacher at the Photo Academy for 1st and 2nd year students, first in Groningen and from 2014 in Amsterdam.
Today I work as a freelance educator at Noorderlicht, an international platform for professional photography.
I organize guided tours, workshops and lots of other projects for various groups of people.
I have always continued to give pinhole workshops.
The workshops are fun and informative for both young and old. Not knowing the result makes it a process full of excitement and surprises. I still enjoy watching others going through this magic experience.
