About the Site
Why the name “NomadMan"? A NomadMan is anyone who has made the choice to answer to Jesus' call of: "Come, follow me". This decision must be made once for eternity, and daily. It is a way of life that brings you heavenly joy and purpose. A life of wonderful difficulties that reveal the amazing helping hand of the one who created us and everything else. To achieve this, we give up our place in this world and become a spiritual nomad. Once someone came to Jesus and said, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.” and Jesus said to him, "The foxes have holes and the birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” We can't follow a Nomad if we don't become one.
I am a photographer living in the Netherlands. I love the adventure, going to places I have never been before. Jesus, my campervan and I, traveling for thousands of kilometers through Europe and parts of Asia. Sometimes for weeks or months. I love to travel without a plan and with my camera, as God leads the way, I capture what He shows me.
About the Images
My work may be a vision, an idea or just a pretty picture to glorify God and thank Him for who He is and what He is doing. This work is a metaphor or a visualization of verses from the bible or just something that is beautiful. Occasionally, I do voluntary work for non-profit organizations. I love doing this, working for and among others who are dedicated to bringing the joyful news of Jesus into this world. I am a praying photographer and can't do it any other way, thank God.
Most of my images are digitally processed. I don’t use my camera and my creativity as a copy machine of the visual reality, they are tools to me just as a painter uses his brush. So, are the pictures real?, Yes, just as real as an idea or a vision. My quest to create an image doesn't come from what my eyes can see.
Photography in the name of Jesus: The word “Photography” comes from greek words "photo" meaning “light” and “graphy" meaning “drawing”. Together would be “drawing with light”. And that is what I hope to do, draw with the light of Jesus.

1 Corinthians 12: 4-7: There are different kinds of gifts, but the same spirit. There are different kinds of service. but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.
