A childhood passion…

Piet-Hein Out was born in Wormerveer in the Zaan region just north of Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Whilst growing up in Koog a/d Zaan he visited his first circus in Wormerveer in 1987.

In 1993 Piet-Hein Out took his first circus pictures at the American Circus of the Togni family on the Stadionplein in Amsterdam and at that winter at the Wereldkerstcircus in the Royal Theatre Carré, a former circus building.

It was the start of Out combining his two passions: circus and photography. It also meant that Piet-Hein celebrated his 30 year jubilee as a circus photographer in 2023.
