In Stadspark Early In The Morning

Took this photo on my morning relaxation walk in Stadspark in Sittard.

When I walk around the park I like to plan my day. It helps me to get more things done.

Since I started planning, I’ve seen my productivity skyrocket.


Do you plan your days?

If not, then start right now! I guarantee you, you won’t regret it.

Here is why…

With a good plan you’ll have more control in your day. You’ll move through the day much easier than without any plan.

That’s a fact… and it is less stressful as well.

I found the best time to plan early in the morning but yours might be different.

One thing I like to do is sit down on the bench and write at least five things I’m gonna do for the day.

There is a positive feeling associated with knowing what you’ve done at end of the day.

How else do you want to track your progress?

Anyway, plan your day.

Planning will make you a better person – more aware of your life.

It works like magic.

The Art Of Wildlife Photography

Let me tell you a story.

When I was in New Zealand, one of my birthday present was a set of DVD’s from BBC nature series which had a short behind the scene section with photographers talking about the techniques they used to shoot certain elements of the documentary film.

For me that was more interesting than the actual documentary. I was blown away by the gear some of the videographers and photographers used for the job.

Since then… I dreamed about big lenses and camera gear for wildlife photography.

Back then I didn’t have my 70-300mm lens and Canon camera. I was shooting with Nikon D90 which was just an entry level camera but great for beginners like me.

I then moved to Sittard and settled down for couple of years and found satisfaction in shooting sunrise and sunset photographs.

I’m more landscape photographer but when I was on my morning walk in Stadspark and I saw this Heron sitting on the bank of the pond I had to grab my 70-300mm lens and take the photo.

And was glad for everything I’ve learned from Tom Mangelsen when I watched the BBC series.

For those of you who don’t know, Tom Mangelsen is a professional nature/wildlife photographer who travelled throughout the natural world for around 40 years. He’s been featured on National Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Newsweek, Life and others.

(By the way he’s got an amazing course on CreativeLive called “The Art Of Wildlife Photography” Which is just wonderful to watch.)

Even I’m not into wildlife as much as I was before, maybe because I now live in Netherlands, I think for anyone who is passionate about it, must watch this course.

The videos are well shot, well organized and the way Tom teaches is easily digestible even by the beginners…

If it sounds like you might be interested, then follow the link below.

All the best…

P.S. If you want to learn how to capture wildlife in their natural environment no matter if you’re a beginner or not, then this is going to be the best course you’ll ever get your hands on… I promise you that.


Because it’s packed with knowledge that Tom gathered for over 40 years.

Here it is…

Fear nothing!

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward” – Amelia Earhart


Found this message few days ago and thought you might like it as well.

It addresses the biggest problem that holds people back… and that is FEAR…

After talking to so many photographers, I think the biggest fear they have or used to have is this…

“I’m afraid people won’t like my work”

Can you relate to that?

I can…

In fact, when I started with photography I was afraid to share my photos. I thought people wouldn’t like it.

But then, I got rid of the fear and things started to change.

I found this video quite helpful…

It got me thinking about fear differently…

The Misterious Box

Few days ago a postman delivered a package to my address from friend of mine who send me a little exciting gift.

It was a large box. I had no idea what was in it.

In the past, we would do this kind jokes where we would fill up a box full of paper or whatever and send it to the other side of the world like to New Zealand, Australia or South Africa.

Usually with some kind of message, short saying or whatever that came to mind. Sometimes just an empty box.

But that was a long time ago.

When I received this gift I looked the address and it came from New Zealand so I immediately knew that there is going to be something interesting in it.

I opened the box and got shocked… WOW… I said to myself and needed to sit down for a while because this was something I didn’t expect at all.

My hair on my arms stood up and I couldn’t swallow. I picked it up and and immediately went online and wrote back a massive thanks for such a gift…


I gotta go now…

So I’ll tell you more about it later.

But man I’m so happy!

Here is quickly why you should be excited as well. This little gift is going to get your mind working and challenge you in your world of landscape photography…

But more later.

P.S. If you’re into Lightroom presets like I’m, then check this fantastic collection of landscape presets. I use them everyday.

Well… the adjusted version of it. I like to put a bit of my soul into my photos so I’m using them as a starting point only.

They are excellent for instant image boost.

Here they are…


Time To Have Fun

This morning I was in the Ligne Library working on my photography project for one advertising company in Amsterdam.

They sent me an email asking if I can shoot ten photos of Sittard-Geleen and capture the historic sights.

I have a pretty descent archive of photos from Sittard-Geleen, so I knew that this is going to be a piece of cake.

And it was…

I’ve done my research, asked few questions and based on that I picked ten photos pretty quickly.

I sent them the license agreement and was on my way to do my own things.

MTB bike trip to Belgium and then overnight stay in Monshau.


What can be better than that…

Enjoy life, my friend…
