Hello everybody,I'm a Dutch photographer. For the past I've worked mostly on commission as a sports, travel, nature and studio photographer before I got sucked into the corporate life. Now I'm trying to get back to photography and writing.I'm started uploading the pics from my portfolio which I thought were good for RF.
