Photography is a serious hobby of mine. I started in 1988 working with a SLR camera; Olympus OM10. During the years I enlarged my equipment with several objectives from fisheye, wide angle to tele. In 2002 I started a photography-course (analog) at the local Art Centre (CK-Roermond). This course focussed on black and white photography and, beside of developing my artistic side, I learned to print my own pictures in the dark-room. In 2004 I started digitalizing my negatives, using a "Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III". Part of the pictures on Myspace are scans from negatives. I got more and more attracted to digital photography. April 2007 I cut the knot and bought a Canon EOS 5D with 24-105mm F4L IS objective. People play an important role in my work. I like to photograph live concerts, models, local/regional events etc. However, also architecture and landscape take my interests, caused by my earlier study (Urban and Rural planning). Take a look at my pictures and feel free to give your honest opinion. I recently joined 3Voor12 Limburg; an organisation of volunteers who register regional activities in the rock and pop scene in word and picture. My contribution will concentrate on photography. March 7th 2008: Hurrah !! Finaly I had the possibility to enlarge (=complete?) my equipment. I am proud owner now of a canon fishey (15 mm F2,8) and Sigma wide angle zoom (12-24mm F4-5,6). Get ready for the real screaming work with lots of perspective and spooky images !!
