Erwin's Travel Photography - Erwin in Aitutaki Lagoon, Cook Islands

Me in Aitutaki Lagoon, Cook Islands

This site shows some of my travel photography.

I am an IT professional from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with a passion for travel and photography. I learned to take pictures and how to develop them in the dark room at a very young age. Never too old to learn, I have recently taken a number of courses and workshops to improve my skills.

I currently work fully digital using a Canon EOS 7D with a few different lenses and sometimes the iPhone comes in handy too. I like to photograph land- and cityscapes but recently I have shifted more to shooting people in their own environment.

Over the years I have been travelling all over the world. A major highlight was a 15 month around the world trip that took me and my girlfriend to 36 countries/territories, mostly on and around the Pacific Ocean. The travel blog can be found here: wherearewe.net. We have revisited some of those destinations since and also discovered a bunch of new ones.

If there is one thing that I have learned from traveling, it’s that the world is big and that there will always be places left to explore.
