Born and raised in South Africa, I lived for a long time in The Netherlands.
My professional background is in science and engineering, and my passion photography, which I did as freelancer

On my blog I talk about specific cameras, techniques, gadgets, lenses, and photographic systems. Some tools are worth talking about just for the art of their engineering. Some tools help you get the job done – easier, better, or faster. My view is that in the end it doesn’t matter what brand name camera you or I use, whether a tiny compact or a big DSLR. It is about capturing important moments.
