Work History: Mr. Koetsier worked as an X-ray Specialist for Philips Medical Systems. He served two years as an Officer in the military. He later established Beyond Light.
Career Accomplishments: Mr. Koetsier became fascinated with the concept of photography at the age of eight. Shortly thereafter, he build his first "homemade camera" with an old matchbox and a pair of magnifying glasses, one on the side facing out and another attached on the inside. While in the military in the town of Roentgen, he discovered photographs of everyday objects created with x-rays and decided he would create this art form. After moving to California in 1979, Mr. Koetsier devoted his time to photography. In the early 1980's, he purchased an x-ray machine and in 1991 he first developed an x-ray and considered the resulting image art-worthy. He perfected his craft and established Beyond Light. Mr. Koetsier spent many years traveling to showcase his work at art shows.
