    Off the Beaten Track: Boulder City Amersfoort

    It may not be as romantic as Paris, as cool as Berlin, or as beautiful as Amsterdam, but my home town Amersfoort is still worth a visit if you want to go off the beaten track.

    Funkie House in The Hague, The Netherlands

    Funkie House in the Hague is a small store 'packed with goodness!' Compared to their store in Rotterdam this is a small boutique, but still they have a very impressive inventory. It must be the most cozy store in town!

    My First Steps in Konstruktor Territory

    After I shot a few rolls of film, I can say this much: the Konstruktor and I still have to get a little more used to each other. We'll get there, eventually, but it isn't always so easy to get nice pictures. However, when a picture does work out, the results are very nice.

    The Best Friendship Includes Lomography

    How can two best friends become even better friends? Through Lomography! I'm a photography graduate, and last year in Brussels, I encountered a fun little camera; the Diana Mini. After a few weeks I was hooked, but I wasn't the only one. My best friend got addicted to it too!

    Canon T50: Don't Think, Just Shoot!

    I was a bit disappointed when I got this camera; it is almost fully automatic. Focusing and pressing the shutter button are the only things you have to do. After I loaded the first roll my mind has changed. The Canon T50 is a superb camera! Continue reading if you want to know why.

    Up in the Air: A Quick Stopover in Amsterdam's Airport Schiphol

    A couple of years ago, just after Christmas, I had a stopover in the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, the major hub for the airline KLM. It was a very busy time of year, so I knew that any airport would be busy, but I was surprised by how big this airport was, let along the amount of people flying through there!

    Photo Albums at FOAM

    In the digital era there seems to be little space left for the old-fashioned photo albums. People tend to organize their pictures the digital way, which leaves one question to be answered: Where do all those old albums go? Erik Kessels has the answer for us, and you can check it out at FOAM in Amsterdam.

    The Day My Analogue Life Started

    As of today I can’t imagine a life without analogue photography. It’s not only one of my favorite ways to relax and escape from daily life, it’s also a way to show that same life and share it with others. Also professionally, I prefer working analogue and it helped me create my ‘handwriting’ during my design study. When did this start? Not even that long ago, in a place not so far away…
