The last couple of weeks, I’ve been documenting the growth and development of the Garden tiger moth. Because I want to include the entire caterpillar stage and it’s impossible to accurately predict how long this will take, I have to take into account multiple scenarios. In this case, I planned a photo session every other […]

Great news about Development. My project will be turned into a book called Growing. My book will be published by teNeues in English, German and Dutch. If everything goes to plan, it will be available on April 15th in Europe and a month later overseas.
The last day of 2020 is a good moment to look back at the last year and all the species I could add to my project. Because of the situation with the Corona virus, it has been a very difficult year for photographers and this was also the case for me. But fortunately this also […]
A lot of series of my project are planned, but sometimes they can come as a surprise. The new series, I’m hoping the work on in the next couple of weeks, is a good example of this; I found some mysterious eggs in my garden. They seem to be gastropod eggs, but I’m not sure […]
For the Development project I document the growth and development of different animal species. But does that mean that all animals of a certain species grow the same way? There is only one clear answer to that question; ‘no’. I’m documenting the development of a certain individual of an animal species under a specific […]
Creating series for Development is challenging in a number of ways; I’ve written blogs before about big or really small animals, but in my opinion, the biggest challenge has to be animals that go through a big transformation, like some insects (caterpillar to butterfly or larvae to beetle) or amphibians. With these series, timing is […]
This week I faced a new challenge; photographing a newborn calf. Earlier, I’ve written a blog about shooting really small animals and how I do this, but what happens if an animal is already quite large at birth? So far, the largest animal was the Dutch pied goat and she just barely fitted on my […]
One of the problems I had to deal with lately, is finding the right food plants for certain animals, especially insects species. Some plants I have in my garden, but when the animals require a specific plant, that is not really common, the only option is to buy one at for example a garden center. […]
One of the species I would really like to add to the Development project for a while now, is a lady bug. A few years ago, I attempted to follow their growth and development, but I ran into all kinds of problems; a lens that couldn’t magnify enough and escaping aphids. Later, I encountered the […]
For most people, taking care of baby animals is a great thing to do. Generally speaking it is, but sometimes things can go horribly wrong. Not all newborn animals are completely healthy and some of them don´t survive. This almost happened to the baby Gargoyle gecko I´m following for the Development project at the moment. […]
