PHO­TOG­RA­PHER

The dash­ing Dutch­man was be­hind the cam­era for our ‘Bend­ing the Rules’ shoot (p236). Here’s how he did so.

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT WORK­ING WITH GQ’S BRAD HOMES?

Find­ing out we ap­peared to be a great team! I’m keen for the next story if it’s up to me.

HAVE YOU SINCE BOUGHT THE EN­TIRE HER­MÈS COL­LEC­TION?

I never found time to try on the clothes, but as they looked damn good on the model, I’ll def­i­nitely check them out.

WHAT IS THE SIN­GLE MOST IM­POR­TANT COM­PO­NENT TO A GOOD PHO­TO­GRAPH?

That it touches the viewer.

WHERE DO YOU DRAW THE MOST IN­SPI­RA­TION FROM?

It’s al­ways peo­ple, and their own unique as­pects, that in­spire me the most.

YOUR CRE­ATIVE MUSE?

I have on­go­ing long-term and short­term muses, who con­stantly in­spire me in dif­fer­ent ways.

MOST OB­SCURE SHOOT YOU’VE EVER BEEN IN­VOLVED IN?

I once did a project about Am­s­ter­dam’s Red Light District, pho­tograph­ing 30 pros­ti­tutes in and out of their rooms. It was a true ad­ven­ture and ex­pe­ri­ence, beau­ti­ful and painful at the same time, dis­cov­er­ing how much this area was a real trea­sure of sto­ries.

SOME­THING PEO­PLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT BE­ING A PHO­TOG­RA­PHER?

Phys­i­cal ded­i­ca­tion – it’s re­ally com­pa­ra­ble to sport!
