The joy of matte paper
"My Epson R3000 printer has been replaced by an Epson SureColor P600. I found a couple of Hahnemühle Photo Rag sheets to test the printer with matte paper. It's a long time ago I made prints on matte and I almost forgot how beautiful prints look on this type of paper."

Bois de la Laufée
"This month I completed my photoproject about the First World War in France. I walked the battlefield of Verdun for the last time. A memorable moment because it was exactly 8 years ago I visited the battlefield for the first time. I decided to shoot some locations I've never been before. I didn’t expect the new photos would add something extra to my existing portfolio, but I was wrong. This haunting image of the interior a French battery in Bois de la Laufée has become one of my favourites. It deserves a place in the final project portfolio."

"Speulderbos is at its most beautiful this time of the year. The powerful autumn colours attract many landscape photographers. This morning I enjoyed the woods together with a fellow photographer. The damping air created wonderful light. This trip was very satisfying."

"Last week I’ve spent two days on the Dutch island of Terschelling to work on my photoproject about the Atlantikwall. Normally I don’t shoot sunsets because it’s a bit cliche. This time my hotel was located near the beach and I couldn’t resist to catch the last light of the day."

Ness of Sound
"Today is the last day of my trip to the Shetland Islands. I’m looking back on a wonderful week. The Shetland landscape is stunning and the light was magical at times. One week is way too short so I decided to return next year."

"I woke up early to enjoy a misty morning with a wonderful sunrise at the heathlands close to my hometown."

"Some months ago I started thinking about buying a Leica Monochrom camera. This idea was driven by my passion for black & white photography and the demand for a more compact camera and set of lenses. The Leica designs are very appealing and this camera, which only shoots black & white images, seemed the perfect camera to me. I decided to trade my Canon gear for a new Leica Monochrom 246 with three Zeiss lenses. After doing some testing, this is one of the first photos I’ve shot with my new gear."
