Welcome on the website of Ruud de Man. I am for more than 15 years Freelance Photographer and from 2006 on a Digital Photographer.
I was an Assistant Librarian at the Cultural Heritage Agency (Ministry of Education, Culture and Science) in Amersfoort (the Netherlands) and since 1 September 2014 Full Time Freelance Photographer. I take Pictures from Nature (Plants, Mushrooms, Insects and Landscapes). I also take regularly Pictures in my Daylight Studio.
Today I use the Canon 6D mkII for Macro – and Landscape Photography. Besides I have the Canon 7D mkII for Photographing Birds. This Camera is suitable for fast action. The Lenses I use for these Cameras are:
- EF 100mm 2.8 L USM Macro
- EF 180mm 3.5 L USM Macro
- EF 100-400mm 4.5-5.0 mk II IS USM Zoom
- Sigma 60-600mm F4.5-6.3 DG Sports Zoom
- Canon 1.4 III Converter
Besides I have an Epson V800 Scanner to scan my Slides etc.
A Picture must be more than a Snapshot. It is good when a Picture can tell a Story.
