Bio

Hi everyone, I am a 43-year old journalist living in The Hague and working in the famous city of Delft, Holland. Travel is my main passion (just got back from Australia!) and taking photos is something I have been doing ever since my dad gave me my first camera when I was 7 years old. My camera is a Minolta 5D, I just love the in-built antishake mechanism.

I especially like to photograph architecture and anything with a strong design to it, and I seem to have a sixth sense for seeing pretty reflections and shadows. I like photography to be as pure and hassle free as possible, you won't see me spending hours on twiddling with photoshop programs. It's mostly WYSIWYG with my stuff. Anyway, hope you like what you see... all your work is an enormous source of inspiration to me and I just hope to become as accomplished as many of you already are!

I try and keep up with my partner Jeff who owns a Nikon D70 and who is rapidly becoming a very good phtographer himself. Yes, things are fiercely competitive in our household! Actually it really is great fun to inspire one another in such a creative manner.
