        Hi, I'm Theo.
        I am a wedding, family, portrait and commercial photographer specialising in documentary photography.

        I have been a photographer my whole professional life and I have been focusing on wedding, family, portrait and commercial photography from the beginning of my career, 14 years ago. I am an awarded and internationally published photographer, a judge in photography competitions and a speaker at photography conferences. I am based in The Hague and I travel for projects all over the Netherlands, Romania and all over the world.

        I am also a minimalist at heart. I believe in time spent nurturing deep connections with friends and family and only owning things that serve a purpose or that honour memories. I’m a dog person, a cat owner, I love simple things – a good talk, long walks, food, snuggling on the couch, watching a movie or reading about psychology, science or photography while enjoying a glass of red wine. I believe life is too short to be anything but exactly who you are. I also believe in honesty, I support authenticity and I strive for meaningfulness. I know memories can lose their edges quickly. And I know that memories are the only things we’re left with.

        In my 13 years as a photographer, I discovered that I care passionately about people. I’ve always been interested in connecting with others on a deeper level, understanding how they choose to live their lives, what they value in their work, seeing the way they love, where they find happiness and learn from their growing wisdom as they go through parenthood. After so many years I’m still as excited to observe life unfolding and photograph that in a way that’s personal and meaningful to those who choose me to tell their stories through images.

        My job brings me great satisfaction and there’s nothing as amazing as knowing that the people who trusted me with their cherished memories are happy with the results. But there’s more to life than jobs, and none of us will be able to live, love, hold our children, snuggle with our pets or take pride in our work if our planet is gone. That’s why I’ve partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, who reduces extreme poverty by employing local villagers to plant millions of trees every year, and part of my revenue from each project gets donated to restoring the forests of the Planet.

        If you care about similar things, and you believe I could do something great for you, I’d love to hear your story!



        My Bio

        I was still in school when I started my photography business. I have literally never had another job and I’m proud to have grown through photography as a human being and that I can still find new ways to do that.

        I am grateful to have had my passion for true, honest photography awarded by some of the most respected photography communities like Fearless Photographers, Fearless Family Photographers, This is Reportage and This is Reportage: Family. I was also nominated in the TOP 30 family photographers in the World and in the TOP 5 in the Netherlands in 2020 and TOP 50 wedding photographers worldwide and in the TOP 10 in the Netherlands in 2021.

        I’ve also been happily helping to pick out the best of the best as a judge for This is Reportage:Family and MyWed Family Award in 2021, Fotografi-Cameramani.ro for the past 8 years and, in 2019, spoke at WEDDCAMP, the Eastern European wedding photographers conference, back in my home country of Romania.

        I am also enthusiastic about teaching and I offer mentoring for photographers who want to improve their images, their business and their life.
