Birds

Birds are how I got into wildlife photography in the first place. It all started with a bird I photographed and couldn't identify. That turned out to be a Blackcap. Birds have since then always kept my interest and I have seen many more. I look for them both in my home country and abroad.

Mammals

There are many extraordinary mammals around and it's always a joy to see one. Many of my trips abroad are built around seeing certain mammals, often carnivores. There is a high risk of failure with these animals, but that makes it all the more sweet to finally see them!

Wild Cats

I picked wild cats (Felidae) as the group of animals that I like my trips abroad to focus on. I plan to see every species of this family, although some are considered very difficult. I liked having a goal to serve as a bit of a guideline for trip planning and cats are definitely worth the attention!

Landscapes

Looking for wildlife comes with the added benefit to be in many amazing landscapes. Although my focus is on the wildlife I sometimes can't resist investing some time in landscape photography. I especially like taking pictures at night because then the camera can bring out so much more.

View below the surface

The area below the water surface offers a whole new playing field for photography which requires very different skills and equipment. Fairly recently I have become interested in getting nice pictures under water. I focus on wide-angle photography while making use of natural light.

Whale Shark at last!

Birders are good at keeping lists. The lifelist comes first (obviously), then often also a national list and then there are a number of regional lists. Birds are excellent for keeping lists because their ability to fly always gives an element of surprise which make your list keep growing. For mammals there are also some […]

Underwater photography in the Veerse Meer

Although the Netherlands is not known as a typical destination for snorkeling, it is certainly possible to see beautiful underwater life here without too much effort. Since I was going to Mexico in a few weeks to do a lot underwater photography, I thought it would be a good idea to practice and test everything […]
