In 2007 I began with photography. My preference is macro photography, finding extremely small insects (only a few millimeter) and photographing them in such a way that they are enlarged to a picture filling result. I like the eyes of insects in particular, they come in all colours and sizes with many different patterns. Beside macro photography, I also like taking photo's of birds and other animals as well as landscapes.
My first camera was a Panasonic FZ30. After that I switched to an Olympus E-620, followed by an Olympus E-M1 and I currently use the newer Olympus E-M1 mark II. The equipment I use is the following:
On Saturdays and during the holidays I work as a salesman at CameraNU.nl (Urk, The Netherlands). During the week I study computer science and engineering at Eindhoven, University of Technology (TU/e). Beside photography I also like to develop software and creating websites. Photography will always be one of my hobbies.
Besides this website, I also have a special website for microscopic photography: https://www.microscopischefotografie.nl
