Welcome to my website!

I am Renate van den Boom, an amateur photographer based in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Photography is my passion since about 2012. It started with taking my camera out on my hikes and bird watching trips and now photography is my main reason for exploring nature. I have taken several classes with different nature photographers to understand the basics of the camera.

My gear:

Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EOS 80D / Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 IS II USM, Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM and Canon EF-S 15-85mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM / Benro tripods / Benro filter set

Photography is my way to relax, explore nature and enjoy the beautiful landscapes, birds and wildlife. Nature is my main goal. I think everyone should be able to enjoy nature. I do not disturb wildlife and birds, do not pick any flowers or fungi and respect rules in nature reserves.  A photo should not be taken at the cost of nature or animals!

I try to edit my photos as little as possible. I take photos in RAW and convert them to JPEG. I enjoy taking my photos outdoors and not behind my computer. I use Adobe Lightroom to convert and stock my photos.

All my photos are copyrighted. That means my photos cannot be used, in any way, without my permission. If you do want to use or buy any of my photos, please contact me at renatevandenboom@gmail.com.

Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you enjoy my photos!


Kind regards,

Renate van den Boom
