Henkjan is a naturephotographer since he was 12 years old. He started as a bird photographer, but quickly switched to different subjects. In addition to a specialization on butterflies and macro photography, he later became a nature and landscape photographer in the broadest sense of the word. You can truly call him an autodidactic allround photographer.
Where Henkjan initially focussed on nature and landscape in the river area in the Netherlands where he lives, in recent years he spread out his wings geographically and travelled through the far East, the United States and all parts of Europe to diverte his scope. In addition, he organized a photo expedition to all the islands in the Dutch Caribbean.
