About me

My aim is to combine my love for wild places, travel and
photography and show how much beauty there is in the world.
While travelling to the far corners of the world as well as
closer to my home in the Netherlands, I try to capture
magical moments of light and subjects.

I do as much traveling as I possibly can, meaning around 7 months a year. Half of that is in Africa where
I travel in my own Toyota Landcruiser. Another two months in my other Landcruiser in Australia.
The cars are both expedition campers, so that I can move independently.
I also do a couple of weeks in North or South America and Europe or Asia.
Travelcrazy you might say. I plead guilty.

You can also visit my YouTube channel and look at clips from my trips. My channel is hzjandre

I realize that not everybody is so fortunate to be able
to travel, so this website is a means of sharing
some of the earth's beauty with the world.
Other people that do travel might find an inspiration
for their next destination.
Wherever possible I want to cooperate with nature-lovers
and conservationists by making contributions with my photography.
An example is working with the Uganda Wildlife Authority,
who gave permission to work close with biologists and rangers
in the Kibale Forest which is home to wild chimpanzees.
The photographs that were taken here are now being used for
identification and education purposes as well as in brochures.

I am interested in joining people on extraordinary trips such as expeditions, overland trips and driving chalenges.
