Thank you for visiting my website, my name is Kees Siemons (for non-Dutch to be pronounced as Case Symons in English.).
I consider myself as amateur photographer. After I was forced to quit doing triathlons due health problems I discovered photography as my new hobby in 2014. For unclear reasons I bought myself a Nikon D3200, that was looking back at it a decisive moment because I am still what you can call a Nikon shooter although I also like my Olympus camera’s.
I started with my D3200 to shoot about everything that came in my way, loved everything I shot but as maybe most of the starting photographers after a while not being to happy anymore and looking for more compelling, challenging and striking pictures.
The first thing I did was become a member of a photo club in my hometown Etten-Leur. Besides that I started looking around for courses and workshops. In 2015 I started at the art academy in Hoogstraten (Belgium). Due 2 eye operations and a year later the Covid-19 pandemic I had to decide to take a brake. Plan for now is to start this end 2021 again for the last 3 years this if the situation around the Covid-19pandamic allows this.
I can see my photography skills improved but I have no clue at what level. I like to sent in pictures for contests and every now and then coming home with some good results. Most important of this all is not losing my interest in photography.
