Hello,

I'm an amateur photographer since 2001. I'm living at "De Veluwe" in The Netherlands. I prefer to practice analogue photography like using old, manual cameras and lenses, developing film in homebrew Caffenol, building wooden pinhole cameras, making paper negatives and printing with historical processes (alt-photo). So that's what this website will be about.

Enjoy!

Although this site will be under continuous construction, I hope you still can find some intersting items about:



Update June 2nd, 2020: I've started a separate page about "Photogenic Drawing, Salt printing and the Calotype procecesses", the inventions of William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1977).

"... avoiding the common illusion that creative work depends on equipment alone ..." (Ansel Adams in his book "The Camera" 1980)

"... I enjoy vintage cameras as “users,” rather than imprisoning them in some display case"

"... It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight ...

"... but I just love the good natured mirth you provided ..." (a complement I enjoyed receiving)
