Nature photography


Landscape photography is a whole different kind of sport if you compare it to wildlife photography. With landscape photography there is much more time and everything is about light, composition and details.

The equipment needed is also totally different. The long tele lenses can stay at home because al you need is a wide angle lens. The wide angle lenses are often used in combination with different kinds of grey filter that are put in front of the lens. Landscape photos are often made at sunrise or sunset because that’s when the soft light occurs, but as always there are exceptions if you think differently.

My landscape pictures have been made all over the World. From the Grand canyon in the United States to the jungles of Sumatra and from the desserts of Namibia to the parks near my home in the Netherlands. You can make your landscape photo´s everywhere, even in big city´s there is alwats a nice view to be photographed. Whether it is the park, dessert or city it is an art to capture your image with the best possible composition and light.

Underneath here you will find a selection of my landscape pictures of which I think that worked out great.
