Rolling from 'mineralogy' into 'photography'...

After lot of experiments, practice and extensive training with the first digital camera it became obvious that more theoretical education on photography was needed. Knowledge of depth of field, shutter speed and aperture opened new horizons and possibilities. I made my first steps into nature photography. Landscapes, flowers and plants, animals and insects were of most interest. 

Soon I extended my horizons and became more and more fascinated by the other facets of photography. A semi-professional reflex camera (a Nikon D200, a D300s and later a Nikon D600) gave me another vision in life. 
Two projects took my attention in 2008. Doel a threatened polder village near the river The Scheldt (first image), and explorations in the desert of Egypt (middle). This resulted in my first portraits and Doel resulted in exhibitions, lectures and later some historical books. The camera became a third eye and followed me all over the world to photograph typical ethnic people.

In 2013 my first images where published in a portfolio... and in the early 2018 PhotoStation was born to show my portfolio to the world.
In the late 2014 I started to publish one photo daily on Facebook. Today (September 2022) more than 2700 different photos passed the revue (bottom Image). Of course you can enjoy them in My Facebook Archives.

In 2020 a dedicated PhotoServer was taken in service to host all my images and publications. More than 120.000 items are divided into 5800 albums.
The PhotoServer, Portfolio or PhotoStation whatever you name it is directly accessible by clicking 'Portfolio' on the leftmenu or on topmenu at the Home Page.
