My name is Jeroen Martin Dubbeld, I was born in July 1972 and have been into photography from around the age of 16. The 1st (film) camera I owned was a Nikon F601 with some lenses and a flash. I witnessed the rise of the digital age from the start - Sony Mavica anyone?
For me "digital" started with the Canon EOS 10D, a 6MP DSLR and with that joining the Fotoacademie (Photoacademy) in Amsterdam for a few years of classes. I switched to Canon EOS 1D Mark II and later Mark III model but man…the weight…the bulkiness…the effort of getting your gear out…it was not for me.
These days I travel light, the Fuji X100 series makes that possible. APS-C size sensor in a tiny camera delivering DSLR quality output. No more bags full of weighty lenses just the wide angle and 50mm 'tele' converter have joined my bag. Perfect for my - the more documentary - style of shooting. If that style suits you too, well then hey, we should talk.
