Currently working as a freelance journalist/photographer, Dimitri became interested in photography because of his elder brother, who had his own darkroom for making black and white prints. After a short side step into painting and drawing, Dimitri was selected to go to school of Journalism in Utrecht, and combine writing articles with taking photographs. In 1994 at the famous Dynamo Open Air hardrock festival, Dimitri had his first taste, photographing musicians on assignment for the school paper; he found it an ideal combination of his two passions. Whilst still studying, Dimitri began working for the local music magazine, M.I.B on a more professional level.
After graduating, (specialising in photography/arts/journalism) he was appointed working full time at Muziek In Beweging, and the underground music publication, Opscene. Working for these magazines enabled him to gain portrait assignments photographing such international stars as Boss Hog, Evil Superstars, Atari Teenage Riot, Sean Lennon, and Janet Jackson.
In 1998 the demand from magazines made Dimitri realise it was time to change from the conventional darkroom and the use of film, and embrace the era of digital photography. By 2002 Dimitri became a proficient photo-journalist with his work being published in FRET, Oor, Live-XS, many local papers, Daily Paradise (a newspaper made at the Lowlands Music Festival) and many, many more. Dimitri continues building a strong portfolio which now contains artists such as Peaches, Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Marlyn Manson, White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, Tori Amos, Oasis, Das Pop, Killing Joke, Jon Spencer, Heather Nova, Placebo, Muse, Nelly Furtado, Rollins Band and Primal Scream.
