Over Harm Jagerman

Who am I?

In daily life I am De Goede Huisvader. This name I used when I became a stay-at-home dad in 2013/2014. I combined my work as a photographer with my task as a stay-at-home dad. Later I expanded my business activities with services in the field of copywriting and website development.

A few years later I decided to return to paid employment. I combined that with my duties as a family man. That is why I continued to use the name De Goede Huisvader. Just like my own company name: Harm Jagerman / Harm Jagerman Photography.


I will not bore you with the details of my childhood. Suffice it to know that my cradle was set up in Leiden sometime in the 1970s and I grew up on the North Sea coast. It is more important to know what experience I have.

I made my first website in 1996. It was a hobby project. It was a website for a radio program that I presented for the local radio. I believed that the playlist should be findable. After that, many more websites would follow.

My professional career started in IT around 2000. As a helpdesk employee, I became a system administrator. After that, I decided to turn my back on the IT world and focus on the recruitment world. Finally, I returned. I fulfilled various functions from consultant to website manager and online marketer. Let’s not forget that I have been registered as an independent entrepreneur since 2010.

In 2010 I decided to turn one of my hobbies into my profession. I became a photographer. In my first years, I combined this with my job as a senior functional application manager at an academic hospital. Later it became a different combination because I became The Good Housefather. More about life as a writing housefather can be found at www.goedehuisvader.nl. Both websites are separate from each other.



So what about photography? In 2020 I got sick (cluster headache), so the photography part was no longer possible. In 2021 I decided to start something new. I decided to supplement the business activities that I already performed in the field of website development with website management. At first, I did this under the name De Goede Huisvader Webhosting. Later this became De Goede Huisvader Web Services. Because the services go beyond ‘just’ hosting.
