Take the following ingredients and blend them all together: born in the Netherlands, growing up in a nature preserve, student at the Dutch royal ballet academy, junior graphic designer and web programmer, traffic guard, counter of cars, worker in a peanut butter and mayonnaise factory and cook in an IKEA store.
Mix these base ingredients together with a fascination for other people's life stories. Add eagerness to go out and explore the world and you get where Ivar was when his interest in photography started to take on a more serious shape. Since 2005 Ivar has been traveling around the world, working with and meeting the most beautiful people. Being part of and hearing so many different life stories continues to inspire Ivar to create his portrait photography work.
Ivar is currently living in Donostia / San Sebastian in the Basque Country, north of Spain, from where he continuous to work as a portrait photographer and as a Senior Editor & Content Team Lead for Stocksy United.
