First Photo Publication in Print

// Even though I see myself as a filmmaker and thus sell myself as one too, I do some photography from time to time as well. I don’t call myself a photographer since I just don’t spend enough time shooting stills – and actually, I prefer film anyway. However, I do still enjoy photography very much and it seems this has paid off with my first photo publication in print last week.

UP/DOWN Mountainbike Magazine has used my photos to illustrate two articles in their latest issue, 2014 #5. The first article is about bike rider Bart Leezer who, despite his physical limitations related to a spastic conditon, still rides all over Europe and even competes in endurance races. A great story I was happy to provide photos for. The second article is about the trip I did with Ride with the Locals in Liguria, Italy in november last year. UP/DOWN wanted to show that, even though for many Dutch cyclists the winter means riding in the rain and cold, in reality we’re just a plane ticket away from an amazing time in sunny warm Medeterranian Italy.

And thanks to their immaculate timing РI got the mag in the mail on the 23rd of December РUP/DOWN got me the best Christmas present I could ask for. Cheers guys!
