I got my first own camera when I was 18. I used it quite often but it was to expensive for me to work with film. So I decided to sell my complete camera stuff. Not many month later I identified that this was a big mistake. And I bought a cheaper camera to do at least some travel photography. Many years later I decided to buy my first DSLR. A Canon EOS 300D. When my first son was born in 2004 I changed into people photography to sent pictures of my son to family members all over the world. But I wasn't good. I saw so much better photos that I decided to buy new gear. With no success. Then I decided to go to workshops and my pictures changed a lot. With the birth of my second and third son I developed an own style of people photography. Then I was asked if I could photograph a wedding. And I said NO. But then the booked photographer was ill and I was the one who should rescue this special event. And it worked. Better than expected by myself... now I am focussed in portraits.
