Photo enthusiast


To be honest, I don’t even know if that’s a word ‘photo enthusiast’ but it describes my passion for photography. As a fulltime IT professional living in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands I have a limited amount of time to spend it in nature, so it is fortunate having photography as a hobby. This website is a photo collage of all the ‘souvenirs’ I have collected during my travels. For years I have joined several Squiver photography tours, owned by photographer Marsel van Oosten and his wife Daniella Sibbing. (don’t worry this isn’t going to be a commercial) Thanks to them, I got to visit the most beautiful places and take my pictures at the right time under the best circumstances. I hope to tell you more about this in my blogs.

Nature photography is all about timing. Whether being at sunrise or sunset in a landscape or photographing animals, it’s all about patience and the right moment to get the best results. This patience and timing allows me to enjoy breathtaking sceneries to the fullest. Photography is a motivation for travelling to great destinations and capture it my way. I hope you will enjoy my ‘souvenirs’. Thank you for visiting my website.
