My name is Stephan de Prouw and I like photography.
I've been doing this for quite some time. I was nine years old when I bought my first camera with my own money (and a bit of my parent's money).
Nowadays, I have a selection of cameras and lenses that cater for different occasions. But my modus operandi remains the same: I see something interesting, something I think other people don't see in the same way. And I look for ways to capture this in order to let other people experience it too. This could be a certain angle, a visual effect or mood, or a funny situation or simply the beauty or absurdity of an object or scene.
