Biography

Next to his full-time job, Pieter is devoted to nature photography.

Since his early youth, he developed a taste for natural history in general, strongly stimulated by his parents, both being graduated biologists.

Angling, hiking, wildlife watching, … His most memorable moments have always been experienced outdoors, ‘in the field’.

The Beginning

Since the first family trip to South Africa in 1997, he has been feeling the need to capture and share these moments.

Initially, observations of various kinds were recorded using analog videography. Garden birds at the winter feeding station – spotted from a hide – were his favourite objects.

Growing

Gradually, he began showing more and more interest in photography.

He learned the art of nature photography from his father Marc, a skilled and passionate photographer, by accompanying and assisting him in photography ‘projects’ and field trips.

After some early attempts using analogue SLR cameras, he finally bought a DSLR in 2003.

Since then, he has discovered all aspects of nature and wildlife photography.

Fond of Nature

He likes to work ‘static’ – waiting lots of long hours in a well-camouflaged hide for animals to appear in front of him.

There is no specific subject or species he prefers. As an all-rounder, he also explores macro and landscape photography.

Over the last decade, he has witnessed remarkable animal behaviour in beautiful settings, either in local nature reserves or at overseas destinations.

Image Use

Pieter likes to share his images.

Be it in presentations for photography friends or at the benefit of local conservation organizations, like Natuurpunt.

Since 2015, he successfully participated in several (inter)national photocontests.

Publications

Additionally, the most appealing pictures are available for commercial and editorial purposes.

His work is represented by several (inter)national agencies, distributing rightly managed stock pictures.
