Photography is more than taking pictures. For me it is part of my life. It has been in my life for as long as I remember. Probably it has to do with my strong curiosity and desire to capture the beauty of the world around me. I got my first camera (Agfa Click) when I was about 14 years old. The second camera was a real SLR camera (a Petri Flex V, which I still have). Many other camera’s followed (both Nikons and Canons), including a Nikonos III for underwater photography. After a lull in my photography activities, when it was limited to the occasional snapshots due to time consuming family and working life, I picked up photography again in the beginning of the digital era.
My main focus is on Nature, Wildlife and Landscape photography, although occasionally I step out to Cityscapes, Architecture and Street photography.
My pictures have a.o. been published in a Dutch travel guide for Finland.
Currently my gear consists of Canon and Fujifilm camera’s and lenses, as well as Cokin and Lee filters with Gitzo and Manfrotto tripods.
