I am Peter van Bastelaar
26images is my creative name for video and photography, 25 frames per second for video, and 1 frame for photography.
The 2 aperature rings of photographic and cinematic lenses fit perfectly in my 26images logo which I designed.
Peter discovered his passion for photography when he sailed aboard ships of the Royal Navy, it started as a hobby, but he was soon able to retrain as a naval photographer in the audiovisual service.
After obtaining his photography diplomas at the photography school, the passion for photography was turned into full-time work as a photographer in the Royal Netherlands Navy, after which he was able to participate in exercises and missions with the Navy and the Marine Corps. But landscapes, nature and travel photography, as well as wedding photography, continued to hold an appeal in his spare time.
In his last position at the Ministry of Defence, he worked as a photographer / cameraman / editor at the NATO headquarters in Brunssum, Military Public Affairs Production Team department.
April 1, 2023 he left the Royal Navy and continued as a freelance photographer / cameraman / image editor.
Peter can be hired for many forms of photography and video and image editing.
From wedding photography & video to corporate photography & video, portrait and model photography, event photography & video, drone recordings, etc.
As a hobby he also likes to do concert photography, but can of course also be hired for that.
