Aside from being a Medical Image Engineer at the radiology department of a university hospital, Maarten ventures through the world with eyes wide open.
His passion for analog photography came from both his grandfather and father who taught him the basic physical properties of the camera, tips and tricks of light metering, developing negatives and darkroom printing. Being a film photographer allows him to have control over the complete process of image creation, while searching for the highest quality in combination with authenticity of film.
Now he practices the profession in the outside world or at beautiful and rare indoor locations, where urban landscapes are certainly one of his favorite subjects. Capturing a single timeframe in the eternal lifespan of humanity really shows how far we have come.
Ideally one uses a darkroom for printing negatives. Maarten’s small home office is set up in such a way that he can change it into a homegrown darkroom at any given time and still come up with the quality you'd expect. Developing, scanning, post-processing and publishing is all done at the exact same spot.
