Behind the lens
About Kim, her sustainable travel and photography platform, and her mission to travel, explore and capture the world with respect for our planet!
My mission and aim
While lots of other women of my age are settled with kids (and that’s perfectly fine too), I’m living together with the love of my life spending most of the time planning, exploring, and capturing our beautiful planet.
I travel to understand the world a bit better and it has taught me the value of memories and people over things.
People and cultures from all over the world inspire me and I love to explore the beauty our life has to offer; from amazing landscapes and breathtaking sunsets to endangered wildlife and meeting inspiring people with their own unique traditions, sounds, and food. At a younger age, I already went on vacation to European countries like Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria, and France. The first country I’ve visited outside of Europe was Thailand, followed by South Africa, where I also worked as a photography and conservation volunteer. Once I got bitten by the travel bug back in early 2000, I was hooked. Traveling our planet - 5 continents explored & 37 countries visited - introduced me to a wealth of different landscapes, wildlife, cultures, and amazing experiences. Memories that will last a lifetime.
Being on the plains of Southern and Eastern Africa gives me that special feeling. In Africa, I feel somehow more grounded and I'm able to connect to nature, the people, and myself.
It forces you to be in the moment because - in the bush - you don't know what the next minute will bring. Being so close to nature makes me feel alive and free!I've visited over 10 African countries, some of them more than once and there really is something about Africa that feels like home to me. As a wildlife enthusiast and wildlife photographer I keep going back to Africa; for its nature, the people, and my love for our beautiful - and sadly endangered - wildlife! With my wildlife images, I hope to spread awareness about the critical facts some animals are facing and that it will inspire you to contribute to wildlife conservation. The fight for our wildlife has never been more important, therefore I hope my images can be a small reminder of lives worth saving.
We don't own our planet Earth, we belong to it and we have to share it with our wildlife.
