Welcome on the photography website of Gerard Spaans.

At the moment I am a Team Coordinator Turn Around Apron Services at KLM. Besides my job, I also have my own company,    Home Finish  ( www.gerard-spaans.nl ) which focuses mainly on bathroom installations in homes.

Since 2013 I am the in-house photographer for the APPM Rabbits Baseball Academy. I will often be present during the 2017 season to take as many photos as possible of all their matches and events. 2016 was a decisive year where I focused more on the Dutch National Rugby league.

In addition, 2016 was very interesting for me because I attended several events including, of course, the European Baseball Championship in Hoofddorp where The Kingdom of The Netherlands became the European Champions; the Final days of the Amsterdam Sevens and various international rugby games in the Rugby Centre in Amsterdam and Brussels.

Furthermore, following the Dutch rugby competition has become some of my core work. In particular I follow the Dutch team of CAS RC from Castricum.

Of course, there are also many other branches of sport available; for example: equestrian sports, hockey, cycling, wheelchair basketball and many others. For me, capturing all forms of sport on camera is a challenge that I like to pursue and embrace.

In 2016 I have taken a step towards the commercial side. One of the things I did, was joining the Orange Pictures photographers union (photo Press Agency) and Novum.

But my pictures can also be downloaded directly through my website or ordered directly at OYPO for an attractive fee. Furthermore, OYPO offers various possibilities to print your photos as wall decorations, downloading alternatives, printing on clothes, and various photo gifts. Photo prints are often delivered within 2 or 3 working days and are of excellent quality. (fuji lab)

If you find it interesting and challenging to have professional quality photos of your favourite sport events or matches, you can always contact me. If you decide to use the published photos for any commercial purpose then I would appreciate that you notify me.
