As a travel and landscape photographer being lots of time on the road is nice, but I always try to be home during the Tulip season. This isn’t always easy as the exact timing of the blooming is always quite random. Sometimes the Tulips will show itself during April and sometimes you have to wait a bit till May. They’re usually here for a period of 2-3 weeks depending on the weather. A safe bet to visit is usually the end of April.

Most of the tourists go to our famous Tulip garden named ‘the Keukenhof’. It’s beautiful for a visit but always very crowded. Seeing the flowers outside the Keukenhof on the farmers lands is on another level. You will see endless tulips that stretch all the way to the horizon. As a Dutch landscape photographer I have taken my fair share of tulip shots over the years. But I always keep going. I love the season again and again, every year. I always have new ideas how to photograph them and always aim for different weather conditions.

This is a series of photographs I captured over the years. I have always loved capturing the flowers from ground level. I love shooting with a very wide angle and love to get up close to the tulips to get a beautiful perspective. This year I decided to complete these series with not only drone footage, but also shots taken from a small airplane from an open window.

A deer suddenly came out of the trees and jumped into the tulip field. It looked at me and then ran away. I quickly managed to get this shot of it in between the red tulips.

Therefore it is not easy to capture the tulips as they move through the wind. However, the wind usually dies down during the evening and early morning.

The sunset colours complement the tulip colours here. I like to experiment with that. Lots of tulip fields have different rows of tulips with different colours. In general, it’s possible to match them with the sky.

Some rows give the possibility to try abstract things. Here you see rows of red tulips with 1 row ending earlier, and a lonely red tulip in front of the ending one, almost like he’s saying ‘stop’.
