Peter G. Northouse's Leadership is internationally considered as a standard introduction of leadership. One thing the book makes very clear is how many perspectives there are on leadership. "Good" Leadership One of those perspectives that is very high to my priorities list is the focus on ethics. While trying to have students and scholars engage for different [...]
Last November our whole WooTeam when to San Francisco for our annual meeting. It was an awesome time seeing most of my colleagues in real life. Afterwards, me and a few others also visited LA.
A few weeks ago our team met in San Francisco. We're quite deprived of good international punk line-ups in Cape Town, so it was great being able to shoot New Found Glory and support.
My first month at WooThemes is finished. What a rollercoaster it has been. For the first time in my life I've had a look at the company side of customer support, I've been involved with tons of ideas, was part of WordCamp Cape Town and am now preparing to leave to San Francisco for WooConf [...]
Today I'm changing jobs. I have to admit, it's pretty scary and intimidating. So far, I've always been the WordPress expert in the companies and NGOs I worked for. I know how to set-up WP and do a little bit of tweaking in CSS and HTML, but that's about it. The fact that I was [...]
I've always enjoyed writing, and since I started my first blog in 2007 I haven't stopped with online publications. Next to my blog, I have written for Breeze, CULTUURSHOCK, and Blikoponeindig. Professionally I have been writing a little bit for Ichtus and CTBC. Lately I have also started a South African sister to our Dutch [...]
The Wolfmother and Editors show in Cape Town was the first show I've shot in South Africa. It was good experience and fun to see the dynamic of both bands on stage.
The parents of friends have a house in Greyton, so we could have a cheap weekend away there. Great company and great scenery in this beautiful little town.
Even though I had seen many parts of South Africa, I had never been to the Western Coast, so for our birthday weekend, Kim and I went to the peaceful Paternoster. The winter sun gave a lot of great light.
At the young adult camp of NewGen Stellenbosch in Franschhoek (May 2014) we wanted to give the young people in our church a vision for their lives. Often people ask themselves: “What’s God’s plan for my life?” With this study I tried to alter that question to “How does my life fit into God’s plan?” [...]
Kim's brother lives in Harare (Zimbabwe) and we went to visit him, but of course also took some time to visit the beautiful Victoria Falls and view this wonder from both then Zambian and Zimbabwean side.
Femke & Johan had their civil wedding a week before their church wedding and party. They asked me if I could document the civil wedding, which I happily accepted. When it turned out to be snowing that they I convinced them to do a quick - unplanned - photoshoot to take advantage of the weather [...]
A few months after arriving to South Africa, we hiked up Stellenbosch Mountain and pitched our tents. It was windy and freezing, but we got a great story out of it. On the way up I thought I was going to have to give up, being unfit and carrying a 10kg bag. I however made [...]
The biblical idea is not so much that there is one divine essence in which Father, Son and Spirit participate. Rather, it is that there is one God, the Father, but there are also two persons who are equal to him and each other in such a way that they are one being, one God. [...]
My wife's dad lives very close to Kruger National Park and he has an amazing 100-400mm zoom lens; the ideal combi for great photographic fun.
From 2007-2013 I studied at the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit in Leuven (BE). A lot of amazing opportunities to try event photography.
I've been on Youth Camps (both as participant and as leader) tons of times. The last time was a few weeks before I left Belgium for South Africa, and we went to Czech Republic with its beautiful Prague.
The wedding of Maaike & Stefan was the first wedding I did as second photographer (with 3GUNNA being first photographer). It was fun not having too much responsibility, but at the same time being able to tag along for all the parts of their special day.
At the closing chapel service of my final year at ETF I was asked to lead the meditation. I decided to talk about a challenge that faces the whole of the academic world, Christian or not; not staying in an isolated tower of knowledge.
From 2009-2013 I worked for the student organisation Ichtus. During the many events I was able to take a lot of pics.
