About me

To learn more today, than I knew yesterday!

Where do I start... I think you could fill the UN with all the family members I have that are spread all over the globe. Photography really captured my interest from 2005 onwards with initially owning Nikons D50, D300 and now the wonderful D810. As a Dutch / Swiss national, I've resided on 3 different continents and underwent an Anglo / American educational background. I'm currently on early retirement (to my & my wife's delight)! I've always been involved in the corporate travel industry, airline business & IT (aviation related).

I mostly enjoy photographing wildlife & landscapes but will deviate if something captures my interest.
Am keen to visit places in the Far North, away from the masses! Specific places that I would still like to visit: Haines (Alaska) for bears & eagles, Churchill (Canada) for polar bears & Greenland for icebergs.
