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 National Geographic Magazine (Dutch edition), special ‘Outdoor & Adventure’ in National Geographic Traveler (Dutch edition), 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 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 Sony camera and work with Apple, Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC. Camera bags by Peak Design and ClikElite together with a Redged TSC-424 tripod, a Glidetrack SD slider and LEE ND filters complement my gear.
