Until 2010 Jeffrey worked as an IT Coordinator in the educational sector. By means of self-study and many years of though practical self assignments he was able to give up his job in 2010 and become a full time photographer. On the one hand this consisted of teaching photography lessons to adults and on the other hand by photographing events, products and portraits as a freelance photographer. But the call of nature was stronger than expected and it did not take long for Jeffrey to make the decision to follow his passion and focus on the discipline of nature photography.
Next to nature photography, teaching remains one of his greatest passions and for years he has been inspiring and motivating fellow nature photographers through workshops, e-books and printed books, seminars, presentations and guiding Photo Tours for STARLING TOURS. And just recently he launched a dutch EDUCATION & TRAINING platform with many online courses.
You’ll also find him speaking on Vision & Inspiration in nature photography on the bigger international photography events. He is also the first to do a LIGHTROOM SEMINAR TOUR within the Benelux and launch an unique photography show – STOKVIS – with his colleague Bart Heirweg. In 2018 he starts his Photography School, in two major cities in Belgium, and more will follow in the near future.

“The tranquility of the outdoors, the gentle sounds of its inhabitants, the soft blanket of light and that glowing feeling within…the shutter captures the moment but my mind captures a feeling for a lifetime.“
