I am a Dutch/Swedish international awarded photographer specializing in photographing Red squirrels. My work has been published wide abroad in newspapers, books, calendars, radio and television, and magazines.
6 years ago, there was a fox standing on my doorstep, and I immediately rushed back inside to fetch some meat. The fox would come back daily to get more food and I used that as an opportunity to take some photos.
By the end of a second week, the fox would come to the balcony where it interacted with various props I used for photography. Soon before late, a Russian bird paid me a visit and continued on doing so daily. Suddenly, my balcony had become a studio filled with nature props, cameras, mirrors etc. The bird followed me and I followed the bird with my camera, as it searched for hidden food in scenes that I had created. Some photos of this encounter were awarded and published.
Eventually, red squirrels appeared and they still come daily to my outside studio. Little did I know back then that it would become my living.
Since last year I have been organizing Squirrel workshops at home. These workshops are organized to occur 2 times a year when the young squirrels arrive. A maximum of 3 participants can join this 5-day workshop.

And then the squirrel sneezed ACHOO

"Hello, huh, I would like to order a Big Mac and a large root beer. Can you hear me? Man, I hate this new drive-thru system."
Under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh

And then the squirrel grew twice its size as the blipping sound rang three times consecutively.
