I cannot imagine how my life would look like without the ocean. For me, the sea is the big playground of Mother Nature, a place where I can relax after a busy day at work or where I can go surfing, sailing or diving. Underwater photography became therefore a big part of my life. Quite often I dive in the waters of the Dutch Delta together with my camera to float between the fish, lobsters and all other beautiful marine life. Many people ask me what makes these waters so special, because they believe it is all turbid and there is not much to see. If I then show them my photographs, they are amazed by the diversity of different animals and colours. I believe it is a good thing to make people aware of our beautiful under water life to protect and conserve it for future generations. You don’t always have to go abroad or travel around the world to find it, it is also present here in the turbid waters of the Dutch Delta!
