Patrick Beckers is from Maastricht, The Netherlands. He has been taken pictures since 1981, but it really became a hobby from 1987 onwards. He started his photograph-career with motor-racing pictures. These days, architecture photography is his specialty, although once or twice a year, he still turns up at motor-racing events. From 1998 til 2008, he travelled around the world to take pictures of the world's tallest skyscrapers and he even released some books on this subject. Since 2012, taking pictures of European castles has been his main objective. Many of his (architecture) pictures have been used in books, magazines, leaflets, and on other websites. His website, his photography, his publishing and other journalistic work have always been done as a hobby, with no direct means of commercial profit. The little profit, if any, he makes, he uses to update his photo equipment and to pay for his travel expenses.
