I don’t always take my big SLR-camera with me. Especially not when I’m aiming to take photos of people. I’d rather capture a natural expression than a posed face.
Sometimes when I’m out with my camera, I get lucky when people walk into my frame, making the image just a bit more interesting.
When I was in southern Africa I loved talking to the locals. And, much to my surprise, they were eager to pose for my camera. >>
I once worked as a reporter/photographer for a regional newspaper (just a few kilometres north from Amsterdam). I was sent to many great events: From a gathering of lace-makers to the biggest sports-event of the region. >>
