Kjeld started skydiving in 1992 at Skydive Texel and was fascinated by the aerial camerawork right from the beginning. After a slow start the first camerajump was made in 1998 and from then on it went quick. Freefly, 4-way, tandem, AFF, bigways, competition or training, if it flies through the sky Kjeld will try to take the best picture of those very special moments.
From 1998 till 2000 was Kjeld a writer and an editor of the Dutch Sportparachutist magazine and wrote several articles about medical, technical and safety topics. He also wrote an article for the "New Parachutist Manual" an official publication by the KnvvL (Dutch USPA) for every new skydiver to show them the way into the skydive world after their first jumps. Apart from cameraman is Kjeld also D-license holder, tandemmaster en staticline-instructor.
Kjeld has studied Human Movement Sciences at the Free University of Amsterdam and physical education at the Academy for Physical Education in Amsterdam. Apart from this he has a teaching degree for college and university level and is a Padi Divemaster. When he is not jumping he is climbing, scubadiving, snowboarding or just travelling.
