I want to welcome you to my 500pix.com website and thank you for the visit. I suppose you've seen some of my photos and I also suppose you'll want to see more and learn how I became a macro fan.
I guess I better start from the beginning...
I've always had a sharp eye for nature and been fascinated by insects, so three years ago I bought my first reflex camera with which I started from scratch experimenting and learning the 'secrets' of THE macro photography as I imagined it should be when as a kid I collected ants, moths and other insects in matchboxes.I guess you could call me a perfectionist or maybe even a freak, but this is how I've always felt things should be done.
One of the greatest satisfactions is traveling around the world and 'capturing' the weird and wonderful creatures I'm showing you herewith.
As I mentioned before, I became a macro fan three years ago and during that time I've visited Malaysia twice where I met wonderful macro fans and even better friends and persons who made things easy for me by showing me their country and it's culture.
After Malaysia I went to Costa Rica which was a totally different experience, also very positive, though not as diverse.
My last trip was to the Peruvian Amazon jungle where I found the greatest number of species so far. This was an experience that not only put me in live contact with the 'subjects' but also taught me how the locals dealt with their bites.
My next trip will be to South Africa, and I'm looking forward to finding new and rare (to me) 'subjects' that will, together with my previous experiences and the ones in the future, give me a better understanding of our planet and make me a better photographer to offer you, my cyber guests, the best of what my cameras and I can capture.
I think that now you have an idea of what really makes me tick...
Thanks for your visit
