Ik heb al veel professionele fotos gezien, ik geniet altijd van de lokale artiesten in onze Californische Art&Wine festivals. Maar jouw talent is toch een niveau hoger! Ongelooflijke timing en kompositie. Echt kunst, bedankt om dit hier in de gallerijen te laten bekijken...

Hi Maartin,
Went thru your gallery - what a variety of aesthetics your pix display: composition, color, capturing the moment, but especially the revealing of personalities -whether the target subject is aware of it or not!! No wonder you're in demand for weddings..! Ciao

Ha Maarten... echt supermooie foto's. We zijn erg onder de indruk. Ik kon eerst niet geloven dat jij die allemaal gemaakt had, dacht dat het gewoon een algemene fotodatabase was. Maar toen we jou er ook zelf tussen zagen staan, wisten we dus toch dat het echt waar was. Echt heel gaaf. Groetjes, Sjon en Esther
