About me

My name is Daan Kalksma and I am a passionate motorsports and automotive photographer from Utrecht, The Netherlands. Currently I have visited multiple motorsport venues in Europe such as: Circuit Zandvoort, TT Circuit Assen, Spa-Francorchamps and the Swiss hillclimb track in Oberhallau and I would love to add many more to this list!

My photography career started back in 2011 when I went to the race track for the first time in my life as an 11 year old boy. This experience made me addicted to motorsport and I started combining it with my passion for photography. 2017 was the first year for me as an accredited photographer and since then I have photographed a lot of amazing events.

My work has been published in magazines, newspapers, books and websites such as: Het Haarlems Dagblad, AutoWeek, Mazda MX5 Cup Jaarboek, Forze Delft Website. EV Experience website and much more!

My mission and philosophy is to provide you with the best motorsport images out there.
