My interest for this started a very long time ago but I kept it asleep until my boys where old enough to deal with moms strange passion for this. I want to thank the people that have put their trust in me to work with their beloved pets, I feel …
I want to introduce you all to my new friends. They just arrived in The Netherlands and came all the way from Eastbourne the UK. They are my future models and will join me on my adventures every now and then. A huge thank you to OhStuffinell for her trust in …
My passion for photography and macro all started with taking pictures of flowers and foliage in every possible form, shape and color. I can spend hours looking for the real tiny ones. It’s impossible to post all of them on my website but I will add new ones every now and than. Pictures in this gallery are from 2000 till now. A little side note: 50% of the pictures in this gallery are made with lensbaby lenses or the primoplan vintage lens ❤︎.
I love animals especially cats!
For as long as I’ve been living on my own I’ve had cats. So yes, many pictures of them in this gallery. Animals are pure and adorable but really hard to photograph sometimes. Pictures are from 2000 till now.
Frogs, ladybugs, butterfly’s, spiders other insects and my personal favorite creatures: snails. Pictures are from 2002 till now and lenses I’ve used are the Sigma 50 mm, lensbaby lenses or the primoplan vintage lens ❤︎.
Drops made by nature and by myself. I love playing with my macro lens and just simple pure water. I prefer to use manual settings and manual focus on my camera to make these. Pictures are from 2002 till now and taken with a macro lens, lensbaby lenses or primoplan vintage lens ❤︎.
Photography that doesn’t fit into other galleries. Pictures in this gallery are from 2000 till now. A little side note: 80% of the pictures in this gallery are made with lensbaby lenses or the primoplan vintage lens ❤︎.
Fall is not my favorite season but I adore the mushrooms in all shapes and forms that time of the year. Pictures are from 2002 till now made with a macro lens, lensbaby lenses or primoplan vintage lens ❤︎.more
Water drops and dew have always been fascinating me. A variety of water drops on moss in this gallery. If you want to try this yourself my advice would be to keep trying different things and use manual settings on your camera. If you practice a lot you’ll learn what the best angle is, the best natural light and the best way to get a beautiful bokeh. Macro can be fun if you just have a little patience, good camera settings and light!

I hate to get up when it’s still dark outside but I must admit I never regret I did when I come home to take a look at my pictures, after all this is the best time of the day for photography if you ask me.
Guess what… I love old decayed buildings 😛 I’m always searching for history about the places I’ve visited and sometimes there is a lot to learn behind all these lovely buildings. People have asked me more than once what the stories behind these places are. I wish I could post it all out in public but unfortunately that is not an option! A lot of things changed ever since I’ve started with this hobby. A few years ago we could spend hours, days, weeks and sometimes even months to find a location. Nowadays you have less than a week before it’s completely trashed, smashed, stolen from and locked. Some of the people that are responsible for this also name themselves urbexers but they are not. They are the reason why I do not post information or history about the locations I’ve visited. I do however think I’ve found a way to try and let you see what it looked like in the glory days and what it looks like now.
Manipulating pictures and combining them together makes it possible for me to tell a story… It took me hours, sometimes days, even weeks manipulating one image. I must admit I do not have the patience nor the time to do this anymore. Maybe I will pick this up again in the future.
