It’s funny how things progress in life don’t you think? One minute you’re a successful food photographer and the next you wander if that is really what you want to do going forward. I mean: yes, I still like taking pictures of food and I do see myself doing that for a while, but there is also that tiny voice in the back of my mind telling me to find an alternative career.


It’s a fact that due to food blogging and social media there are many many food photographers out there. Way more than there used to be when I started 12 years ago. And some are fantastic. Probably better than I will ever be.

So it’s ok. It’s the natural way of things moving forward. So the work availability will probably grow thinner over the years. More people to spread the work. Plus, in addition to that, I feel that the whole cookbook hype here in the Netherlands might be at it’s end. I don’t know. It’s a feeling more than anything else.

The next thing

Plus maybe it is time for me to move on to the next thing. Now the question is: “What will that next thing be??” I’ve been thinking long and hard on that and feel myself moving towards nutrition. I’ve done a study on nutrition last year and got my diploma and I want to learn more in that area. I just have to find a way to make it into an alternative career and feel that my blog(s) might be a good way to do that.
