Never knew people were searching for ice and milk. I now know.

Soms time ago I had a dream. The dream kept coming back, followed me around, even during day to day chores. And I knew I could make that dream come true. The dream? Gettin' smoking rich with photography. Yes, I was going to be that guy, that sold images and could make a living out of it.Luck was on my side and I was able to buy a nice 6D, some lenses, and LR4, so I started. But the wall of reality hit me hard in the face. I was never going to be rich from photograpy. The market is flooded with... continue reading

Get rid of blocking thoughts, free up your mind to do what you like

About 6 to 7 months ago, I lost all interest in photography. From one to the other day, it was simply gone. I couldnt find a reason within myself. I searched a lot, did a lot of meditation, NLP etc, but I couldnt find any reason why I had lost all interest in something I truly loved to do before.I tried to let it go, bannishing the blocking thoughts, but that was easier said then done.

Kids never sit still and there attention span isnt the biggest in the world. How do you make sure you let them sit still? You think outside of the box and create new stuff out of nothing.That is what I did with these pictures.

Im loving this.

The last day of 2012. I still remember the day like it was yesterday. The time was ten in the morning, and I was cuddling my (at that moment) 6 month old son, while trying to get pictures with my Nikon 9100. I failed, and the compact fell to the ground. Lens locked, screen totally smashed....My girlfriend thought I would get mad as hell, because getting images of my son in playfull moments was something (and ofcourse still is) something I took dead serious. My son is my everything. But the falling... continue reading
