Welcome to, the website of Henk van Kooten.

Henk van Kooten is a hobby photographer who are mainly concerned with taking photographs of various ports, boats and ships. He will also often than others by the name "ships potter" them.

One of the reasons for this interest is that his father, Willem van Kooten, was captain of several ships and Henk van Kooten, as young as he was, went into the life of shipping, marine and ports. Since that time, his passion of these phenomena remaind and is actually only strengthened.

We hope that he can captivate you with the fascinating life of the shipping and everything it implies.

We wish you happy sailing...
