Patrick De Paepe

Even when I was young photography interested me.
With the money of my first holiday job I bought myself in 1983 my first SLR camera, a Practica MTL 3.
Photography has always been a passion to me , and now that passion is greater than ever.
I photographed many things , but in 2003 I found my true love in nature photography ,
In my opinion there is no greater thing than capturing the beauty of nature on photo.
My Pratica did really good but soon it was replaced by a Nikon SLR the FE.
Since that day I only work with Nikon.
In the beginning I photographed the nature in my own environment.
But soon I wanted more , I started to make journeys to other countries for more beautiful photos.
It was starting to become a tradition ,and now I can say I have visited over more than the half of the Northern Europe countries. And I didn’t kept my journeys in Europe alone ,also Africa and Alaska is on the list of the journeys I made .
I still own a second hand Nikon F2 and shortly I decided to buy some B/W film for it .
My 500px portfolio shows my better nature photography work…
My motto:
Keep the spirit high and keep on capturing.
