The word photography is derived from the Greek words light and scribing. That’s basically what you do. It doesn’t matter if you do it the old fashioned way (analogue) or the modern way (digital). The principles still apply. Nowadays it’s easier to shoot photos. Especially when you have a smartphone.

Long ago, I picked up the camera of my father. This was an Olympus OM-1. From there on, my journey started and it hasn’t stopped. From hobby, it became a profession. I was listed as self-employed as of 2010. Nowadays, I combine this with the care for my children. I still am a stay-at-home-dad.

Photography is always interesting and intriguing to me.
The photographing family father
In Dutch, the name I use is De fotograferende huisvader. Translated to English this is The photographing family father. I offer my services as a professional under that name for the personal photoshoots. Business photo shoots are also possible. Take a look at these websites:

It was too hard, I guess...

It was too hard I guess …

Via Facebook and Instagram I asked whether the followers could see which symbols or hidden messages can be found in the photos I took for the series “Living in Quarantine,” “Working from Home” and the photos I take with the title “ Lockdown 2.0. ” It was too hard, I guess… Don’t worry. I am happy to help you to parse or analyse photos.

We started again!

We started again!

It seems that is was not so long ago that I announced the last photo in the series Working from home. Together with the series Life in Quarantine, it showed what we did during the first lockdown (light). The situation has changed and the new lockdown of December 2020 is more strict. So it was a good time to pick things up where we stopped. Yes, we started again!

This article is no longer based on the situation of my company. I decided to combine all the photography activities under the name I normally use and skip The photographing family father.
