“I’m proud to contribute to the iconic status of the DAF brand”



For years my passion has been making beautiful photos of cars and in 2017 the day arrived when I was allowed to do my thing for DAF. And that was for a whole week, during a press event. My motto is: "If it has wheels, it has to drive." I try to realize that at every photo shoot. Usually standing or hanging out of the roof of a moving car, I visualize the dynamics of DAF's heavyweight trucks.

DAF and I find each other in an increasingly natural way. The DAF annual calendar already has a lot of my photos and that makes me very proud of course. However, I don't just photograph the trucks. The faces, hands and machines that transform the raw steel into a shiny end product also deserve their moment of fame.

Every time I go out on a photo shoot for DAF, I understand better what a culture icon this Dutch truck giant is. That I, as a specialist, am able to add my bit to that is, of course, great, #ProudDAF!
