Hello and welcome to my website. First let me introduce myself.

My name is Gerard van Oosbree and I am from the Netherlands. I have been photographing for the last fourty years, most of the time as a part-time professional.

I specialize in military and law enforcement and I am the co-owner of Dutch Security Media Productions. We run the website www.dutchdefencepress.com and work for several companies and publications.
Our main focus for the website is operational units, their training and selection. Besides all the photography we also do all the writing.
The companies we do commercial work for are all in the defence and law-enforcement field. We not only cover events but also do advertising- and product-photography for them.

Besides the military stuff I do modelshoots for fun. I started this in 2008 after stumbling across David Hobby’s website Strobist 101. I used it initially as a learning tool to better understand and be able to work with strobes and off-camera lighting. But shooting with models was fun and so I occasionally still do modelshoots.
