Now this is what I call original, who would think of a composition of a men looking into a birds nest... exelent. (were there any eggs?) (Sorry Paul, just had to say that ;-) Without kiddin' now: I just love your face, if I had a face like that, i would have shot myself many times. Ehh.. wait, I know how it sounds, but that's not what I meant. I actualy think you should do much more pictures with yourselve as the subject. You have a very interesting en masculin face. (I mean this honest to God) (Pfew..) I also LOVE your biography photo. It totaly intrigues me. It has an enormous Monty Phyton ring to it. Just love it, and can't stop it from crossing my mint now and then. There is some mystery in it for me, like "is he kidding here?", after reading your biography, I know you probably are, but it still intrigues me... the pose, the clothing, the colors and lighting. It's just great!

Thanks, Frits: No offense taken regarding the "bird's nest" comment. Actually, it was very funny and it had never occured to me until you pointed it out. And, no, there were no eggs. What's funny about me taking my own pictures is: I do it because often times, I shoot at 3 or 4 in the morning and there is no one else around. I am trying something with lighting and I need to have someone stand out there. So I make an attempt to aim the camera in the general direction where I think I'll be and shoot. Thank god for digital, at least I can see what I got and delete and reshoot if I didn't crop properly. The "bio" photo is a personal favorite. I have tried to make it a habit of having my models shoot a single image of me at the end of a shoot and that one was taken by my dear friend, Vanessa, who's pictures are on my site. Thanks for stopping by.
