About me

I don’t really remember when I started with photography, but my first photographic experiments were with an analog point-and-shoot during the family vacations with my parents. Even then I already preferred nature photography. My first analog SLR was Rusian made and I got it from some small shop on the Falconplein in Antwerp (in those days that was Little Moscow). It was with that camera I really got into photography. Technical my photographs weren’t that good, but an entire new world opened for me. For some reason I can’t remember, I later returned back to an analog point-and-shoot. Probably for practical reasons, but I also photographed less and less. In 2005 I changed to digital, with a HP point-and-shoot. Looking back at it, that thing was of terrible quality, but nevertheless I made a lot of images with it. Because I kept hitting the limitations of that camera, I bought my first DSLR in 2008. At the time I picked Canon and I’m still faithful to that brand.

Since that time I explored the technical side of photography through courses and workshops. Because of that the quality of my images improved a lot. The subjects I photograph are mainly nature photography and concert photography. These are very different subjects, but they offer a wide range of possibilities for me as a hobby photographer. By now I have a huge collection of digital images. Some of them I put on the internet and can be seen by anyone in my portfolio here on this website.
