I am Pim Nijland. I make beautiful photos of sports events and my travels. I would like to share my vision of images with you through this website.
I grew up in a small town in eastern Netherlands called Didam. I love capturing unique moments and stories. After photographing from a young age, I decided to follow my heart and start as a photographer.
Passionate about adventures and beautiful places. Love to have fun and laughs often. Believes great images are rooted in real, uncontrived moments. Finds inspiration in travel and exploring new places. Is on a mission to sample the best craft beer in every city he visits. Thinks problems are meant to be solved and going the extra distance is always worth the effort. Believes success is always possible when you work hard an put others first.
As a self-taught photographer, I have a ever increasing thirst for knowledge that is serving as inspiration. I am balancing my drive with my technical knowledge of photography, that helps my work as a freelance photographer. I shoot mainly sports, lifestyle and travel photography with a focus on cycling and transportation. I want my photographs to have a look and feel that is colorful, powerful and energetic.
I am living at a village in the east of the Netherlands near Arnhem along the E35 (A12/A3) highway between the Dutch ‘Randstad’ and the German ‘Ruhr Area’, but I will work wherever a bike, plane or car will take me.
I really appreciate your interest. Thanks for stopping by. I am always interested in new projects, assignments, clients, and happy to travel internationally for shoots I am passionate about. If you have a project in mind, are looking for a specific image or want to throw around some ideas, contact me anytime. You can follow my adventures at Facebook, Instagram or 500px.
