I love to tell stories with pictures. I am known for casual and candid portrait photography, but I often shoot other things I’m passionate about, like food, cycling, or (never often enough) skiing. I live for the process of making pictures, and throw myself wholeheartedly into each new project.
My photography has been recognized in the PDN Photo Annual and The Magenta Foundation’s Compendium of the best Canadian Photographers (Yes, I am Canadian. And Dutch. But mostly American). I’ve been awarded the Johnson & Johnson/ICP traveling fellowship, and exhibited at Jen Bekman and ICP in NYC. My films have screened at Interfilm Berlin, OffLine Film Festival, and The Bicycle Film Festival.
I live in New York City, and work for commercial, editorial, and advertising clients around the US and internationally. Some of the clients I’ve worked with are:
The New York Times
The Wall Street Journal
Harvard Business Review
Report On Business
The Climate Reality Project
Sullivan & Cromwell
Levien & Co
The School of Visual Arts
The Outdoor Journal
Sometimes my clients talk about me (better them than me):
“I have worked as an editor with Harry on several book projects, and he's always my first call when I need original photography. Harry is precise, collaborative, and creative, and brings a sharp, thoughtful eye to each assignment. Equally valuable to me as a client is how easy he is to work with–which makes any shoot an enjoyable process!”

“Harry, I just wanted to tell you how impressed I was with how you handled the latest multi-tiered assignment. I really appreciate it and also how easy it was for us to get great pictures. I must say that the timing was also spectacular.”

“Harry was an absolute joy to work with and he took incredible photos. Thanks for making the connection!”
"Harry is a talented storyteller, editor, and cinematographer who first came to my attention through his beautiful film “Tuesday Night Special,” which I included in the Bicycle Film Festival in 2014. I called Harry when I needed a compilation of 15 year’s of films from BFF made on a tight deadline. The resulting film helped to strengthen the BFF brand and to secure continuing sponsorship. Harry found creative solutions to a number of problems, and was a pleasure to collaborate with."
