Amsterdam, The Netherlands

I shoot with a Canon Eos 30D and the following lenses:

- Canon EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS USM
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM
- Canon EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
- Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

After my first encounter with digital photography I bought a Ricoh Caplio compact camera. I soon discovered that I missed the freedom, possibilities and quality of an SLR and decided to investigate which choice would be best. Initially I wanted to go for the Canon Eos 400D with an additional Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 lens, but after holding the 400D body in my big hands it felt too light (I felt cramp in my hands after holding it for a while). After more research in stores and on the web I finally decided to go for the above package and I never regretted it for a second.

Since I own the 30D I have been spending more time on shooting scenes year through like when I started 25 years ago. Early 2009 I finally started getting into the processing my pictures.
