  • Alone by the sea

    Alone by the sea

    I’ve been experimenting with another type of camera lately. Let’s just say that the sensor is quite big. This shot was taken with a shutter speed of 8 seconds at f22 at iso 100. From a tripod obviously. The upside of that tripod is, besides the fact that I can get sharp images, that I […]

  • For sale: Leica Noctilux 50/0.95

    For sale: Leica Noctilux 50/0.95

    My Leica Noctilux 50/0.95 ASPH is not getting enough user time. Ever since Leica completely rehoused it after an unfortunate drop, I wanted to keep it in ‘as new’ condition. It has been in a safe for the last couple of years and it deserves more than that. If you’re interested, send me an email. […]

    Featured #12: Jeff Ascough

    This featured article is special to me, because today we have Jeff Ascough from the UK. When I started in wedding photography, roughly twenty years ago, there wasn’t such a thing as documentary wedding photography, at least not here in The Netherlands. I knew how I wanted to capture a wedding, but there wasn’t a […]

  • Q&A: Will the Leica SL still be a good camera in 5-7 years?

    Q&A: Will the Leica SL still be a good camera in 5-7 years?

    Today I received this email: Dear Joeri, I’ve enjoyed your website, in fact your comments helped me to decide to purchase a Leica CL last year and I’m very happy with it.  I also appreciated your comments on the SL cameras. Could I ask for your opinion please?  I’m an expat residing in The Hague […]

    Featured #8: Dirk Marwede

    Dirk visited The Netherlands some time ago for a workshop with me. We had a good time and I loved reviewing Dirks work. He’s a very talented photographer. I was surprised to see how many good shots he took in just one night. Enjoy! 1) Can you tell a bit about your background (as a […]

  • Q&A: 50 SL Cron or 50 SL Lux?

    Q&A: 50 SL Cron or 50 SL Lux?

    I got this mail last week: Hi Joel, Quick question, I can’t decide between the Summilux SL 50 and the Summicron SL 50. Price is much the same, and I can handle the bulk of the Summilux – but my  hesitation is based on the slower focus speed of the Summilux. Understandable as it is […]

  • Q&A: the Leica 28 or 24 Summilux?

    Q&A: the Leica 28 or 24 Summilux?

    Hi Joeri I hope that this email finds you well. I regularly read your website and love the pics you took with your Lux 24 and I am myself considering one. Since I know that you also wrote a very positive review of the 28 Lux, I was wondering if you saw major differences and […]

  • Spelen in een Beatles tribute band: ontleden en proberen (we zoeken nog een zanger en drummer)

    Spelen in een Beatles tribute band: ontleden en proberen (we zoeken nog een zanger en drummer)

    Het begon bij mij zo’n dertig jaar geleden. Als brugklasser logeerde ik af en toe, vooral als het hard waaide, bij m’n tante om minder ver te hoeven fietsen. ‘s Avonds speelden we dan ‘mens-erger-je-niet’ en mijn tante draaide LP’s terwijl we kopjes thee dronken. Op een van die avonden hoorde ik voor het eerst […]

    A Leica workshop with brothers R&J

    Two weeks ago I had a full weekend with two brothers who both love their Leica’s. One of the brothers had participated in one of my workshops before and now they decided to do some serious photography together. We started in Rotterdam with a thorough portfolio review and then hit the streets for some documentary […]
