Hi, I'm Sander van der Werf. I studied illustration, and a year graphic design, at Art Academy Minerva in Groningen, the Netherlands. As a big outdoors enthusiast, over the years I started to focus more on outdoor photography and less on making illustrations and wallpaintings. Consequently, I became specialized in outdoor-, travel-, landscape photography.

My photo's and articles have been published magazines like Op Pad, Bergen Magazine, Columbus Magazine, Noorderland, Outdoor Magazine, Limits and Hoogtelijn. Favorite subjects are landscapes, hiking, camping, alpinism and winter adventure. I occasionally write a blog about Sweden for Op Pad magazine. For the ‘Adventure’ serie of publisher Dominicus I made the Dutch hiking guide ‘Trekking in Zweden’.

Usually I work freelance, and photograph, shoot footage and tell visual stories for various Stock agencies. However, I'm obviously always interested in photography assignments. In- and outdoor!

I photograph and film with full frame Canon equipement and work with Apple , Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC. Camera bags by F-stop and ClikElite together with a Redged TSC-424 tripod, a Glidetrack SD slider and LEE ND filters complement my gear.
