We are Travel Media Productions, based in IJsselstein, The Netherlands. As the name suggests, we produce various types of material with travel as subject. Where the focus is mainly on footage and photography, we also write articles and upon request graphical design.
Travel Media Productions is a product of Gentoo Multimedia Limited, a company started back in 2007 and registered with the Chamber of Commerce in The Netherlands.
As founder and director, Raldi has been with the company since the beginning. He shot most of the work the company currently has on offer. Trained as an economist, he has taught himself how to handle the camera and market the material shot. His footage has been used in television commercials, music videos, films and on websites.
He began travelling the globe extensively early 2005, mostly to remote locations known for their wonderful wildlife spectacles. His favourite destinations include the polar regions (e.g. Svalbard, Canada and Antarctica) as well as the great parks in Africa, like the Serengeti and South Luangwa. Apart from this he frequently travels to cities worldwide on assignments. He still travels as much as possible, but as director he is also responsible for media acquisitions and sales.

Roel is an experienced and skilled graphic professional. He has earned his spurs in the graphic industry, where he has worked on numerous projects for high profile clients in, amongst others, the cultural sector and the fashion industry.
Apart from shooting footage for the company, Roel has been instrumental in editing the footage as well as images. In addition, he has played a role in behind-the-scenes organisational aspects like planning of trips, location scouting, shot composition and designing the logo etc.
