About me

Photography is a very addictive hobby, that's for sure!

As a teenager, I forced the camera to be in my hand all the time on holidays. In 2006, I bought my first D-SLR. Since then, I really got into photography as a challenging occupation.

I always try to make a photo that is not a 'standard' photo...a photo that really tells something that is not clear at the first sight. Of course, not every photo can be such a 'story', but it's a challenge to try to spot the lights, compositions and dynamics that others don't see until they have seen your print.

Of course, I'm just a beginner and need to learn a lot still. All criticism - positive and negative - is very welcome!

My gear: Canon EOS 400D + 15-85mm + 55-250mm + 430EXII

And not to forget: my Mobile Phone Camera! I hate people saying you need a DSLR to make nice photos. It's more than the camera, it's about knowing what your camera does, what it CAN do and very importantly what it CANNOT do!

    Hi, Thijs,
    thank you very much for the comments to my pictures!
    At the moment I have not enough time, to spend it here in the community, so i'am sorry that I answer your question for official friendship not before this time. I see no sense in official friendship, but I set the contact-status on yellow ( normal friendship).

    Regards, Thomas
