Besides photography, travelling is my main hobby. Luckily these two are easily combined. As a PhD-student in molecular immunology, I also tend to have an eye for the smaller things.
I got my first SLR (a Pentax K1000) at the age of 16. After that I spend quite some time developing B&W films in the darkroom of my father. Fascination for B&W is till very much present. Every once in a while I still develop a roll of Kodak Tri-X, although I spent more time in the digital darkroom nowadays.
