About Jelmer

Who is Jelmer? I'm a Dutch landscape and nature photographer and I love to show and tell you stories about the natural world around me. 

Why landscape and nature photography? Since my childhood I have explored nature. During my education photography became a great medium to register the beauty I found. Although sometimes photography stands in the way of truly enjoying the natural world I still love to combine both.

What do I like to do besides photography? Besides photography I like to bike (mountain- and race bike), walk, cook and off course hang out with my girl :-)

Do you make a living of photography? Unfortunately no. But I do sell my photos and I am available for assignments. At this moment in time I feel that I can still achieve a lot with my "daytime job" as civil servant at province Gelderland. Here I am an ecological adviser for all sorts of projects.

You can buy my photos at Nationale Beeldbank and Werk aan de Muur.
