Sander is a versatile and resilient photographer for both editorial and corporate clients based in Brussels, Belgium.

His editorial work gets published in NYT, Le Soir, Le Monde, The Guardian, and many more.

His corporate work consists of portraits and reportages for NGO's or corporate clients.

Born Dutch he's addicted to Dutch 'drop' (black sweets), sailing, biking, ice-skating, cheese in all it's forms and life in general. He is pragmatic, quite direct, restless and practical: Traveling and living in Brussels learned him to be relaxed and less 'Dutch' , e.g. more European.

-Inspired by his father -an insect-photographing anthropologist- and his mother -a medical analist with a darkroom- Sander started photographing at 10.

After dropping out of university, doing army-time and having worked in the pro photo-gear business too long, Sander found the courage to follow his heart and visited the Royal Academy of arts at The Hague, studying photography. He worked in several photo studios before starting as a freelance photographer in 2002.

Moving to Belgium in 2008 moved his career into photojournalism, where he now shoots mainly portraits and other editorial assignments for international clients.
