|Although I never actually did gymnastics
myself, I follow it closely on tv and whenever I can I visit competitions.
The sport caught my attention during the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and I
have been a fan ever since.
Photography has been a hobby since I was very young. I used to take pics for fun, but when I bought a new camera and lense in 2000 I started taking more professional pics and that's when I got involved in gymnastics photography. I visit as many competitions as I can. Most of them are held in The Netherlands cause that's where I live, but when it's not too far I sometimes go abroad.
Thanks for your interest and I hope you enjoy the photos!,
