Dutch Duo Wildlife Photography

who are we?
Who are we? Nederlands
A Dutch photography couple, living in a camper and traveling through North and South America to take pictures of wildlife. We started traveling in 1997 in an old Mercedes camper van. We went from Europe to the Middle East and Southern Africa and shipped it to the USA. In Alaska the 26 year old van gave up on us and we replaced it with a pick-up truck with slide in camper.
Although we make
pictures of everything that moves, we are mostly fascinated by grizzly
bears. All the wildlife we shoot are living in the wild. This takes a
lot of patience.
Valdez (Argentina) is the only place on earth where in the Spring you
can see the unique hunting method of the killer whales. The orca will
grab sea lion puppies in the surf at such a propelling speed, that the
orca will beach themselves on the shore.
In 2003 we
switched to digital and we love it!
We hope that
this website exudes our enthusiasm for capturing wildlife images.
