Since the establishment of Touchdown Aviation in 2004 Remco is part of the team. Being an airshow photographer in the beginning, he slightly has made the move to cover militairy exercises and more in the Netherlands and abroad. Although photography and delivering the best picture possible still is the main aim, he more and more aims to write a good story in support of the images shot.
Remco was born in Amersfoort, which is in the centre of the Netherlands on the 7th of May 1984. The very next day, he moved to his parents address in Woudenberg where he lived for 26 years. He grew up nearby former RNLAF airbase Soesterberg with the F-15s from the 32nd fighter squadron which were based there until 1994 he stood as a little child at the spotters hill watching the F-15s and local stuff. Currently his home town is Leusden where he lives with his girlfriend nearly under the former extended centerline of runway 27.
