... Welcome to my website about non-digital photography ...



I'm an amateur photographer since 2001. I'm living at "De Veluwe" in The Netherlands. I prefer to practize analogue photography - using old, manual cameras, building wooden pinhole cameras and printing with historical processes (alt-photo). So that's what this website will be about.

Update June 2016:
I'm reviving and renewing this very old website of mine, to have a place to post some of my work an other interesting items online for others to view.



Although this site will be under construction for quite a while, I hope you still can find some intersting items about:

"... avoiding the common illusion that creative work depends on equipment alone ..." (Ansel Adams in his book "The Camera")

"... I enjoy vintage cameras as “users,” rather than imprisoning them in some display case"

"... It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight ...

"... but I just love the good natured mirth you provided ..." (a complement I enjoyed receiving)
