Born in 1966 , February, 11th and living in Zele - Belgium.
Somewhere mid 2004, I got bitten by the photography microbe. Before then, I only admired the work of other photographers. But the microbe bit that hard that I wanted to give it a try myself.
I started out with an old second hand Minolta Dimage.
Very soon I found I wanted to learn doing more than just push the button. In 2005 I enrolled for a course at the IKA (Instituut voor Kunst en Ambacht) at Mechelen were I learned working with Black & White film. This became one of my favorite branches in the photography environment. I just love the smell of developer in the morning. The photographs shown on this site donít even approach the printed version e.g. on barite.
However, I realized myself that I couldnít neglect digital photography and I became member of DPChallenge. This site organizes several weekly challenges around a multitude of themes. There are no prizes to win, but to me itís a way to improve my skills and to work around different themes.
