Heavy thunderstorm just north of Boston.
Walls of clouds, climbing up to heights that even surpass the capability of my 747. An ever-changing landscape of vapor towers and violent fronts that are a meteorologist dream.
Author: Born in The Netherlands in 1983, I wanted to become a pilot from a young age on.
At the age of 20, I found my first job on the Fokker 50 turboprop where I flew under various contracts in local operations in Africa and Afghanistan. At the age of 23 I started on the Boeing 737 and at the age of 28 I joined my present airline on the Boeing 747 Freighter where I fly now for over 6 years.
Operating in a global network with countless of destinations, I find joy in capturing the beauty and the world from above with my camera. A great admirer of natural light, I have the best office and views in the world from 35.000ft, being able to capture everything I see. The global network also gives me the chance to visit many cities in the world and I find more and more joy in capturing the moods and atmospheres I find in every corner of this planet as well.
