About me

Hello, I’m Tom van der Leij, a born and raised Amsterdammer. I received my first camera when I was 10 and haven’t put it down since. My documentary photography style captures people, animals and nature in all of their diversity and beauty, and is what gives my photography its fresh and genuine look and feel.
