The blog has been the longest running section of the website: originally started
as means to "keep folks at home updated" when moving to The Netherlands in 2004,
it has been moving through various incarnations, still growing to this day.
Even though having held one or the other smaller camera in my hand before, I
still consider 1992 as kind of a starting point for getting a bit more
serious about photography. It was however the move to the digital format in
2008 which set me on the path to get ever more passionate about the craft.
I am a senior scientific software developer, specialized in astrophysics,
astronomy and space instrumentation data processing. Specific background
is in data calibration processes, data reduction pipelines, and algorithm
development for radio telescopes and satellite instruments.
