Born and raised in the Netherlands, Peter Sikkens started out in Industrial Design and Engineering getting his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Twente. After working with 3D printers, laser cutters, and other rapid design- and prototyping machines, he decided to switch his career path to a different creative industry: Film.
He made the move to New York City and graduated from the Cinematography conservatory program at New York Film Academy, New York in July of 2015 immediately followed by Tiffen's Eastern Gold Steadicam Workshop near Atlanta, GA.
Cinematography, Steadicam/Camera operating, and Key Gripping form a great combination of Art and Engineering.
Peter is based in New York City.
