  • Dou and the Noctilux

    Dou and the Noctilux

    Last Sunday, I had a shoot with Dou, an artistic nude art model from France. I wanted to see if she’s suitable for future Leica workshops. With my French being as rusty as her English, it was a bit of a challenge. I’ll let you decide whether you could work with her. I used the […]

  • The Leica Noctilux 50/1.0 short review

    The Leica Noctilux 50/1.0 short review

    I might have given this post a different name: ‘one reason to use both SD card slots if you have two’, but I didn’t. I’ll make another post about that. But the short story is: I did shoot the Leica Noctilux 50/1.0, which was supplied to me by my friend Maarten from The Analog Camera […]

  • One shot with the Leica Noctilux-M 75/1.25

    One shot with the Leica Noctilux-M 75/1.25

    Isn’t she gorgeous? I’m afraid I’ve just created an ‘alternative fact’, because this shot wasn’t taken with the new Nocti 75. No, I took it with an ordinary Nocti 50/0.95. Very bourgois indeed. Want to know which camera? Hmm, well, allright: the first version of the Leica T. Very, very unpractical in a setting like […]

  • Leica Noctilux on first wedding of the year

    Leica Noctilux on first wedding of the year

    The season has started early. Usually I shoot my fist wedding in April, or the last days of March. This time it was early February. After having spent enough time with my Noctilux in the streets, it’s time to take it out to the wedding field. Without looking at the lens specs in Lightroom, my […]

  • Happy new year to all!

    Happy new year to all!

    2014 has been a great year for me with lots of interesting workshops, the launch of my ebook and many weddings. Moreover, last year has been the year where I could share some inspiration with my readers and that’s exactly what I want to continue in 2015: more inspiration for photographers and more technique, gear […]

    Work in progress

    When I tell people what I do for a living they usually say: “Wow, so you get to see a lot of the world, don’t you?” Well, yes, I do, but I also spend quite a few hours in my office. Not just for post processing, but also for designing and making albums. I’m one […]

  • Delft by night

    Delft by night

    The Noctilux is slowly growing on me. For assignments where I have time to ‘play around’, I bring the Nocti and take some shots with it, after I know I got my shots with the lenses I always work with. And of course when I go out I try to bring it as often as […]

  • Beauty and the 0.95 beast

    Beauty and the 0.95 beast

    Yes, the Leica Noctilux 0.95 ASPH is a beast. And with the same price tag as a brand new small car, or a second hand nice car, it doesn’t come cheap. Yet I’m in the process of buying one, because I think it will work for my documentary wedding photography¬†and my other photographic assignments. It […]

  • Leica Testdrive

    Leica Testdrive

    Leica Netherlands recently introduced a very interesting program for potential Leica customers: Leica Test Drive. After enlisting – and maybe a bit of waiting – you just pick up a bag with a Leica M240, a 35 and 50 summicron and there you go. Shoot it for a few days and bring it back. Costs: […]
