I studied Food Technology in The Netherlands and graduated in 1983. From that moment on I am active in the food industry where I soon discovered the intriguing world of the food ingredients.
At this moment I’m still active in the food Ingredients all over Europe as a New Business Manager for a South Korean company.
Another world that was intriguing for me is photography. With an analogue CANON SLR a lot of photos were taken in the nineties and discussed with other hobbyists. When the children grew up I started with the first steps in the digital world.
The start was made with a second-hand CANON 350D with a 24-105 zoom. I wanted to use this camera also for sports photography, and bought therefore a CANON 70-200 f/2.8L IS zoom lens. With this lens I could get some nice pictures from the soccer games of the sons. After a few years I felt I needed an upgrade of the camera, that’s why the EOS 350D was sold and the CANON EOS 7D was his successor. Lenses changed, and the 24-70 f/2.8L, the 70-200 f/2.8L IS and a Tokina 12-24 f/4 were the lenses to shoot with.
Just recently (March 2015) I exchanged the EOS 7D for his successor, the CANON EOS 7D mark2. At the same time the Tokina 12-24 f/4 was changed for the 11-16mm F/2.8. Next to this I also changed the processing of the raw files, where I went from Camera Raw & Photoshop to CaptureOne 8. I must say that I really like the final result!
Nowadays the main areas of interest are sports, the dogs, landscapes & voyages. Whenever I go on a business- or family trip the camera is with me. When we go for a hiking tour with friends the camera is also packed. Backpack on the back, camera on the front in a special camera bag (Think Tank Digital Holster 40).
je hebt er wel werk van gemaakt zeg Ruud, mooie foto’s, da lukt me niet meer met het digitale dingetje wat ik nog hanteer momenteel tijdens mijn wandelingen.

Bedankt Peter! Er zitten inmiddels heel wat uurtjes in en een aantal upgrades van camera’s en objectieven, maar gelukkig is het terug te zien in de kwaliteit van mijn foto’s!!
