“De camera is een extensie van mijn arm”

Fotografie veroverde mijn hart in 1986. Als twaalfjarige jongen kocht ik van mijn gespaarde verjaardagscentjes mijn eerste tweedehandse Praktica 35 mm film. Foto’s maken op de hardcore manier, nu zouden we zeggen terug naar de basis: Dinmeter in de hand, licht meten, camera instellen en schieten maar. Dan was het even spannend, is de foto gelukt? Bij een goed gelukte foto schreef ik de instellingen op een kladblok.

In de loop van de jaren raakte de fotografie voor mij wat meer op de achtergrond. Tot in 2010 het weer begon te kriebelen. Ik kocht een Canon EOS 550D met de 18-55mm en de 55-250mm lenzen. De camera werd een extensie van mijn arm. Een hoop ervaring en jaren verder durfde ik in 2019 de hobby om te zetten naar werk. Ik heb veel TFP shoots gedaan met een vast model. Momenteel fotografeer ik met de Canon EOS 90D met een 18-135mm lens.

Hieronder vind je een “reis door de tijd”. Dit is mijn steeds groeinde online portfolio.
