A few years ago Photography became one of my favorite things to do. I started with a Nikon Coolpix 8700. It was a great camera but it was given me a lot of limitations at the end. Then I bought the Nikon D80 and a whole new world was opening for me :-).


In the beginning I just taking snaps, but since I've bought me this reflex camera, I'm looking more and more for special shots, try to take some macro's, HDR and now I'm also doing modeling photography.


You can find me on ModellenNet:
