In 2008 I started to photograph with a Canon EOS 1d Mark III (with a 1.3 sensor).

The first years I shoot every bird in front of the lens and learn alot about the Dutch species. I use a Sigma 150-500mm lens but replace it very soon with the Canon EF 300mm f/4.0 IS USM with a 1.4x II extender so I have a 420mm f/5.6 lens which is way sharper/better than the first one.

Soon I start to get interested in other sorts of photography as well. Landscapes with a whole array of Lee filters (I love dramatic skies and sunsets/risings), long exposure photography, but also shooting bands and photographing on filmsets.

Because my interest is more focused on the behavior of animals and less on the technical side of photography (I miss alot because of the concern of lighting, aperture, shuttertime, ISO…), I get a telescope instead of a new camera in 2013 and start videoscoping with a Swarovski ATX 30-70×95 in combination with an iPhone 5s. Alot of my short clips can be found at www.nederbirds.nl

In june 2016 I get a Canon EOS 5d Mark III camera (with a fullframe sensor) and replace my 300mm lens with an EF 400mm f/5.6L USM in july 2017. Unfortunately I have to stop photographing in 2018.
