Marcel, I am interested in your images generated with the Sigma SD1, would you consider adding some to my Sigma SD1 Landscape Group at Flickr. There aren't alot of these images, because the camera is so new. I would really appreciate it if you would consider it. Since your guestbook doesn't allow hyperlinks the name of the groups Sigma SD1 Landscapes at Flickr.

great work as a photographer and thanks to show what the Foveon sensor is capable to do (in the right hands) in terms of colour rendition and sharpness. Being a Canon and Kodak user I recently joined the "foveon club" buying a used SD10.

mari wilo 13-Aug-2006 04:03
I live in Broome and have spent a few years up in the Kimbeley and I must say your galleries are superb. It often takes a visitor to capture the essence of place, space and hold time in expectorant pause. mari

max is so expressive !!! it´s great to capture these moments, they are changing so fast.
Good couple max and the cat, I had to say good bye to my kitten some weeks ago....
unfortunately my wife´s health (allergies) did not stand to have the cat anymore...also our son could have the same allergies, so (really very sad ) but safety first.
Thanks for the photos...

Visit my Barcelona Photos one of these days, we are hardly builiding on a skyline with skyscrapers...(Personally I don´t like it to much)..

regards, Volker

We have a vague plan to visit your part of the world. After seeing your pictures, we will speed up our plan. Superb galleries!!!
pete_200330-Jan-2006 02:20
At one time I thought that great photographers had "a good eye". Seeing your galleries makes me realize that it's much more. You clearly have the ability to see excellent photographic opportunities... it's also clear that you have mastered the techniques of photography. However, the skill that sets you above others is your imagination. Yours excels. Well done.

Best regards, IHL.
Trent 11-Nov-2005 14:43

Jules 09-Oct-2005 00:17
You're photos are absolutely out of this world. I now live in England but was born and raised in Perth up until a few years ago. Never have I felt homesick until I came across your photos. They bought tears to my eyes.. Beautiful.
Henry 01-Oct-2005 02:33
Marcel, the photos are moving. Would appreciate knowing if the photos are available for purchase and framing, in large size. Were they done on film?
The Osprey photos were just enchanting.
Guest 25-Sep-2005 16:22
Marcel, OH MY GOSH!!! I am traveling so I only had time to check out your New Zealand and Australia galleries. BEAUTIFUL. I will be back to check out the rest when I get home. I am fairly new at photography, so thanks for the inspiration, Susan
B Thomas Johnston23-Sep-2005 06:06
Hi Marcel, beautiful images here. I really like the way you're able to catch the action in your bird shots - just spot on! All of them are exceptionally captured and presented. Thanks very much for putting these online and sharing them with the world. Very inspiring.
Cheers, Ben.
Dr Alex Gooi 19-Sep-2005 22:44
Hi Marcel,
I was just browsing at pbase and saw your work. You have amazing talent. I esp like the gallery of Western Aust & the Great Ocean Rd. Make me homesick looking at all the glorious images from London, you have so skillfully captured and showed the essence and beauty of our great country. What joy!

Would you contact me about possible sales of an image of yours?
Guest 22-Aug-2005 19:24
Hi Marcel :)

I have been living in Scotland for the past 1 year and a half and was feeling a little homesick so was searching the net for some photos of Perth W.A and came across your site. Your photos are amazing and I think you have captured our city so beautifully.
Thankyou for cheering me up, will visit your site again soon!

Guest 22-Jul-2005 18:30

Since the first time I saw your galleries, I was trapped by the colors you achieve, and the magnificent composition. If you have some spare time I would appreciate very much if you could give me some idea of your workflow, because I consider the results are stunning.

Thank for your posts. eHc

I am an amateur oil painter and live in Margaret River, WA. My brother has a holiday place in Dunsborough and for his 40th birthday, I would like to paint a picture of Sugar Loaf rock for him, as it is one of his favourite places. Could I have your permission to do my own personal interpretation of your photo SugarLoafrock1? Believe me, it won't look anything like your photo, but I would like to use it as a reference. Hope to hear from you soon. Beth

Hi Marcel,after many years of using 35mm film,I am moving over to Digital and would appreciate any guidance you could offer as to what to look for in a digital camera.Your gallery is fantastic and although the Sigma you use is a revelation regarding the sensor technology (unfortunatly i cannot afford one), you should be congratulated for using it to its best potential.Once again, congratulations.
Guest 15-Jun-2005 17:59
Hi Marcel,
a pleasure to travel through your galleries! I'll come back for sure.

Hi Marcel,
I work for an ad agency in West Perth, and was interested in a series of your photographs featuring Cottesloe Beach. I was wondering whether you would be able to give me some information in regards to purchasing one of these, and whether it would be possible to use the photograph for an advertisement.

Unfortunately I am out of the office tomorrow and Friday, but if you are able to help me with this, please call the agency on 9322 4433 and ask for Rene Migliore, or email him on

Kind Regards,

Guest 08-Mar-2005 15:46
Amazing galleries!!
Guest 24-Feb-2005 14:37
Hello Marcel,

You receive lots of possitive comments on your photos, offers, all those things I am sure you are used to already. What I can honestly say to you is that your work after visitng a few times your galleries has made me take an extra interest on Photography. They are really inspiring. I have seen lots of superb pics, very technical etc.. , but most of the times do not pull out any emotions out from me the way yours do. I sort of feel identified with the way you see things through your lenses. I am just looking forward to continuosly improving my technical knowledge and try and express through my camera how I feel the things I see and the things I feel, and your landscapes, skyes, all your compositions are very inspiring. So thanks for sharing!!

Ria de Jong, van oom Wim en tante Annie uit Wormerveer, en ik waren deze week op de verjaardag van tante Rie in Castricum. Wij troffen daar je vader en moeder die, terecht, aan het opscheppen waren over hun kleinkind. Mijn nieuwsgierigheid was opgewekt vandaar dat ik je site goed heb bekeken. Het is mooi fotowerk, vooral de natuurfoto's hadden mijn extra aandacht. Zelf heb ik van de fotografie ook mijn hobby gemaakt en ben lid van een fotogroep in Zaandam. Ik heb geen eigen site, maar sta met een aantal foto's op de site van de fotogroep. Het adres is

Hi I am interested to know what you think of the Sd10 from the images I have seen it does a great job for landscapes. I am about to choose a camera I am confused about canon or Sigma i was thinking about the new Canon D20. How large do you blow your pictures up as I own a gallery in Sydney at Echo Point Blue Mountains and need quality shots. Any advice would be helpful. Great shots though must say

I'm looking at travelling overseas shortly and was wondering what type of camera and lenses you use as I am thinking of buying before I go. Can you help me out. Thanks.

Thanks for viewing my pictures. I was pleased to get your message. So I looked at your galleries and am so impressed by your superb work. I shall spend many happy hours admiring them. It was especially agreeable to see the Perth and W.A. pictures as when I found your message I had just returned from London Heathrow Airport, after seeing off my cousin returning to her home in Watheroo ! Such timing :-) Regards,

Dear Marcel,
Your talent is bright and nearly endless like a serene Australian sky! I think we have all to learn something from you, to get able to master light and perspective of scenes, without having simple postcard-like results, but something much more evocative.
I have voted two of your galleries, because they are really worthy to be seen and appreciate by more and more people.
Sincerely enthusiastic

Marcel - terrific tour of your country here, thanks so much. I've delayed my exploration of the West in my two visits, but your terrific pix of the Southwest have inspired me to visit asap.

Hello, I enjoyed your photos.Thx for sharing. :)

Hi Marcel,

I am not surprised to find so many enthousiatic comments within your guestbook. Your portfolios are indeed supurb. A lot of people may think that a sophisticated camera and some really awsome lenses are needed to produce high quality and eyecatching pictures such as yours. Well, it is not. It is the person behind the camera who deserves the honors. His equipment is nothing but a tool to finetune the work of art that the photographer created the moment he pressed the shutter release botton.

Kind regards,
Hans (Belgium)
