About 53Classics

Welcome at the 53Classics website!

I’m a freelance photographer based in Vlaardingen, Netherlands, specializing in automotive photography.

I’ve been involved in the VW scene since visiting my first aircooled meeting in Zandvoort in 2015. After years of dreaming about owning a beetle, my girlfriend Patty and I decided to buy a 1972 ‘Texas yellow’ beetle. The past few years we’ve visited many aircooled shows, cruise nights and camp-outs in Europe.

My photos have been published in several publications including Keverwereld and Zoom Magazine and my photos have been used for event promotions.

Thanks for looking!

Pim Hesse
