Making photo's is one thing, editing is the other.
Control both and perfect picture will become in range.
Recently I notice that perfection is boring. I think photography is about the beauty of imperfection. Maybe one should strive to perfection of imperfection.

I started making photo's at the age of 8. I took my mother's old belly-camera from around 1950 to take some photo's at my first school trip to the Zoo. The shutter speed was determine by the speed of your finger! Later on, it was done in the dark room. Nowadays life is more easier with Photoshop!

What camera equipment I am using? I can shoot with any camera. A camera is just a tool like paint brushes for a painter. Do you ever ask a painter which brushes he uses for his painting? I think only the results counts ;-)

I try to shoot all kind of things; nature, flora, fauna. people, action, buildings, abstract, macro and even surreal. Every subject needs its own specialism. This is a challenge and fun at the same time :)
That's why I'm feeling more like a 'decathlon' photographer than being superb in one subject. But most credit will go to my nature images. I love to take you on my journeys around world by showing my photos day by day. I've traveled all around the world and seen beautiful scenery's but remember that a good photo can be taken anywhere even in your own neighborhood.

I'm married and have two kids, born and live in The Netherlands. Your comments are all welcome (good or bad). In my opinion the viewer is always right ;-)

Picture you, Picture me,
