Q. Are these animals alive?
They are living wild animals free in the forest visiting me daily.
Q. Do you use photoshop?
I use photoshop to clone out wires, pins or things like food buckets. My photoshop skills are not good enough to put in new elements in my photos, therefore I photo the objects in the same time when the animals interact with them.
Also I use photoshop to stack 2 photos from the same scene. Although there can show up 6 squirrels at the same time it is rare to have them both standing the way I want therefore I capture 2 photos with the squirrels in different places in the same scene.
Q. Can I use your photo's for my art?
No. I do not allow artists to use my work.
I started to allow some professional artists to use my art in exchange for a fee of the sales.
Q. Do the squirrels have names?
Although I have close contact with the animals I am not giving them names. It is everytime again to find a balance between that they are totaly independend and still visiting my garden.
Q. Can we bring you a visit?
I am a very private person and it is rare I socialise in daily life. 4 times a year I organise photo workshops for max 2 persons. For the rest I try to have visiters as less as possible.
Q. Can I share your photo's on social media?
Yes with mentioning my name and you are not commerciel, but for background or profile photo's I charge money.
