Hi, nice You took the time to visit my website.

I live in the North Holland city of Purmerend, a city of 80,000 inhabitants.
Purmerend is part of the Waterland region, together with municipalities such as Landsmeer, Beemster, Oosthuizen, Edam-Volendam and Monnickendam. The region can be regarded as typical Dutch.

I am a nature lover, stay regularly in the German Eifel and enjoy hiking or mountain biking through the woods and hills. In addition to the beautiful surroundings, I am also a lover of the most challenging circuit in the world, the Nordschleife, or "The Green Hell".

In addition to hobbies as hiking, mountainbiking and motorcycling, I began to photograph as a hobby a few years ago. Occasionally, I use a digital SLR camera, a Nikon D3000, but usually my smartphone (Samsung), hence the name of my website "smartphotos".

The advantage of the smartphone is, of course, that you always have it at hand and photos are quick and easy to share via social media. Disadvantages are the lack of an (optical) zoom function, set exposure and the relatively small sensor.

That you can make very nice pictures with the smartphone, is what I want to show on this site.
I often use some apps to edit photos such as Snapseed, Aviary, Enlight, Effects Studio, and Color Splash.

Browse the different folders under "Portfolio". I hope you can appreciate the results.
