    A Leica group shot: how I did it

    Group shots are a nightmare for most photographers and I’m not an exception. While I’m quite comfortable with single person portraits, a group shot is completely different. The difference between these two has everything to do with being in control. With a single person corporate headshot I use my own portable studio, consisting of two […]

    The Cosina Voigtländer Nokton 35/1.2 ASPH v2 review

    I bought the Cosina Voigtländer 35/1.2 at least six or seven years ago when I wanted one fast lens for my Leica M9 which I could shoot any wedding with. I have shot many, many thousands images with this lens and I only started using it less when I bought the Noctilux. On the Leica […]

    Reflections

    Winter is a relatively quiet time for me. It’s also the time that I’m working on my hand made albums. Making an album means re-editing the pictures for optimal performance in the printing process, but during the editing I also get the chance to reflect on a year that has gone by. While I like […]

    Wednesday wedding pic: the venue

    Lose the high heels, tie your comfy All Stars and move to the dance floor… Leica M240 with CV 35/1.2 (the lens that’s always pretty when the light is sh*tty)

    Wednesday wedding pic: just before the ceremony

    There are a few moments where brides and grooms tend to get pretty nervous: just before the first look and minutes before the ceremony. Here, the bride takes a peek to see if the guests are all gone to their seats, so she can go unseen. As a documentary wedding photographer I feel that all […]

    Wednesday Wedding Pic: the tie

    Sometimes you just need to have some luck. I have worked with the worst light you can imagine and I have seen the most beautiful light there is. Here, in the library of a castle somewhere in Holland, I could shoot with this beautifully filtered light that I haven’t seen often. While the groom and […]
