Please let me introduce myself.
I am Benjamin van der Spek. A self-taught, award winning, photographer from Zeeland, in The Netherlands. I love travelling and creating amazing images of all the things I encounter.
In November 2014 I was the fortunate winner of the Frans Lanting Public Award by National Geographic and the World Wide Fund for Nature. One of the most important photo awards of The Netherlands and Belgium. This kickstarted a lifelong ambition to professionalise my photo-career. Many awards followed.
I have travelled from the arctic to the tropics and photographed flying planes, drones, and paragliders but also deep under water, high on mountains and in caves.
I photograph nature, architecture, portraits, weddings, sports... you name it.
When I am home I teach art and photography to teenagers and adults, having a great time.
