Ambitious, creative and open minded, Rogier didn’t choose to become a professional photographer. It chose him.  

His sensibility in his choices of light, shadows and shapes are reflective of who he is, as a person. From behind his camera, he looks to enhance lifestyle moments, reveal facial expressions, exposing the beauty of interiors, people or capturing the taste of food in an image…
