I live in Wijk bij Duurstede, one of the oldest cities in- and located in the middle of the Netherlands.
Over recent years I have worked in a number of commercial and management positions in highly demanding profit environments and I have a passion for photography.
I’m only an amateur who finds peace, satisfaction, happiness and relaxation in photographing landscapes, nature, street scenes and people besides the daily stressful life.
I started with photography due of a present from my cousin on my 8th birthday: an analog camera from the brand Ricoh.
The following years my equipment was expanded with the analog cameras of Olympus: OM 10 and OM 2.
About twenty years ago I stopped with photographing because of a lack of time and interest.
In 2008 I stepped into the digital arena and started again with this (our) beautiful hobby.
At the moment my equipment consists of the E-system of Olympus: the camera’s E330 and the E30 and some different lenses.
I’m convinced that the best way to become a better photographer is to look to- and to learn from the work and comments of our fellow hobbyists.
This allows me to give an extra dimension to my hobby.
