I became serious with photography in 2009, when I bought my first DSLR. After a quick year of experimentation I found that landscape photography is the genre I’m most passionate about.
How important is photography for you?
Photography is second to my experiences in the outdoors, but it does help to channel my creative energy. So, in that sense, it’s as important as food.
Your favourite and most inspiring location?
The Alps, without a doubt. A huge swathe of an area to name a particular place, but since we do not have mountains here in the Netherlands, a mountain range breaths something mystical. One such mystical location on a rainy day is the Rosenlaui Gorge in Switzerland.
Who is your favourite past or present photographer?
That’s very difficult to answer since I admire so many of you guys. There is Andy Lee, who is great with infrared work and Alexandre Deschaumes, who captures mountains like no other. And of course, Ted Gore, whose style I really admire.
What are your future photographic plans?
I have 2000 images from my recent trip to Iceland that I still need to prune and process. I’m also running workshops to help Dutch photographers capture those glowing mushrooms. As for next year, I will be off to Scotland again.
What advice would you give to a younger you about photography?
A younger Daniel could have benefitted from more focus. Focus on what really drives me instead of what drives the economy and modern western society. Don’t go out looking for money to fuel your passion, but find a way to use that passion to fuel that passion.
