Happy and Healthy 2020

Greetings! I am working hard on a new website so first you will only get to see blog posts with archived posts and also old photographs taken during my career. Gradually the look and mechanics will improve. I have regained my mobility so will start shooting again yay!

Malta and Gozo

A few shots from my recent break in Malta and Gozo. I took some snaps of the places we visited and also messed around with blurring. I managed to get a few shots for The Kiss as well. I shall post one of the better ones.   These pix are taken of Valletta, Azure Window, …

Die Die Die in Paris and London

The boys are back in town, mainly to record a new album and to do a couple of warm up shows before they embark on a two week tour in China. I catch the Eurostar a few hours before they arrive in Paris and wander about the Montmartre district, an area I had not been …

My mentor

My mentor Harry van der Brugghen. In October/November 1988. I left the military at the end of August and wanted to continue with photographic studies. I had my work published on most Heavy Metal bands from 1982 until 1987 and during my military service (1987/88) I had my camera with me at all times. After my stint …

Playa Blanca, Lanzarote

Time for a break the missus reckoned and sunshine beckoned. So of we went to The Canaries, this time Lanzarote. Quite windy and cloudy but plenty of sunshine in the afternoon, went to shoot at Cuava de Los Verdes (bit overpriced if you ask me) and the Cactus Garden and took some close-ups while blurring …

The Netherlands

A couple of pix from this week’s visit to The Netherlands. The shot on top was taken at Almelo station early in the morning at the very end of the platform there is an old fashioned waiting room, where somebody had the idea to decorate it minty green. Makes an interesting shot. And below that moment when …

Terry O’Neill

Just happen to read an interview about Terry O’Neill on the Treats Magazine website (I go there for the interviews honestly……) I like Terry’s work, some fab images he has made that have stood the test of time, may he sell loads of prints! One part of the interview stood out, after which I could only …

Rant

Back in the day there were Gold/Silver/Bronze Awards, now you get Best In Category as an accolade. In the …

AnneMarie Prince

This is a polaroid transfer of AnneMarie Prince and was taken in 1993 in Den-Bosch. I cross processed the negative as a slide film (that is c41 film  developed as e6) and that gave it this large green tint. I shortly after found out which film to use and what filtering to counteract that. I …

Been a while

It has been a few months since I have been posting here, and besides using my iPhone on Instagram it doesn’t amount to much. In the mean time, time allowing, some changes to a new website and photographs will be done as well and especially the metal stuff, I have made a load of scans …

Paul Fusco

I don’t really write, or comment about other photographers. In fashion i/e there are not many that I really admire, and the ones that I do have achieved granddad status :) or are not among us anymore. The ones that have been added on the so called BIG status these past two decades not one …
