My name is Marc,
Main specialty is Architecture, Art and HDR Photography.
My camera’s : Pentax K3 and K5, Fuji X100 and Samsung NX3000, and a few analog Leica mount M39 rangefinder camera’s.
I was born in 1961.
My love for photography started long before I realized it.
Actually, I had to learn to ride a bike first,
that must have been somewhere around my fifth year I think.
Afterwards, when I was big enough to go along on a bike ride
with my father and older brother on Sunday,
I had my first contact with photography.
It was my brother who was bitten by the photography virus.
Many Sundays were spent in a forest, or any other interesting place,
where beautiful pictures were taken.
Somewhere along the way I got bitten myself.
My first camera was a 110 format, Kodak Instamatic 400, somewhere in the mid seventies.
Sometime later (don’t remember how), I started working with an old Voigtlander Vito.
With this camera I learned the basics of photography.
Late seventies, I got my first SLR, a Fuji ST701.
Became a member of the photography club that my brother had founded,
and learned film developping and all the other mysteries of the darkroom.
Again later, the love for the Pentax brand started with a Pentax SV.
The predecessor of the legendary Pentax Spotmatic.
The years flew by, and eventually somewhere around 2000, I went over to digital, and of course with … Pentax ! What Else !
2015-2016 and up, specializing in vintage manual lenses M42 mount ( DDR and USSR ), also scratching together a few analog rangefinder sets to use with film ( Nicca, Zorki, Fed,…)
