About Pim

Pim Hesse is a Dutch classic car and aviation photographer, who was born and raised in Vlaardingen. He took his first photograph at the age of 14, when his parents gave him a Minolta XG-1, and he has been taking photographs ever since, mainly focussing on classic aircraft photography.

Pim's photographic work has appeared in a number of national and regional magazines, newspapers and promotional material. 

Pim is involved in classic car photography since 2015, when he and his girlfriend Patty bought their 1972 Volkswagen Beetle. This was a childhood dream of Pim. They now take their oldtimer on trips through Europe, to car shows and meetings.

Pim joined the VWBrothers team in 2015, sharing his images of aircooled Volkswagens with fellow enthusiasts.
