I have decided to give some space on my website to my fellow photographers to promote their work through Guest Galleries. These galleries will be part of my website, but containing the work of different photographers together with their biography and link to their websites. Each month I will try to feature some new photographer. After one month of being the featured artist, the portfolio stays on my website in the Guest gallery.

The whole project of Guest Galleries is still in development, but if you are interested in being in the Guest Gallery, you can already send me an e-mail to

– each time I update my website you will receive an informative e-mail which you could (maybe even should J) forward to your contacts to promote my work as I promote yours

What is necessary to prepare for the Guest Gallery:
