The person behind the camera

Quirina Santing-Kamoen


My name is Quirina Santing-Kamoen, I live in Emmen, the Netherland with my husband Marcel and Matsi the dog. Taking pictures is a lot easier than writing a story about myself, but let’s give it a try.

I have been taking pictures since I was about 12 years old, although those were just snapshots of the things that interest me. Still, I wanted more and bought the first DLSR in 2017. The Canon 100D, with which I really took a lot of photos and also the beginning for my passion for photography.

In 2021 I decided to really focus on photography in my spare time. Not that I want to become a professional photographer, because for me it is a hobby. This because the pleasure I have in photography is more important to me than making money to live from it. That is why I focus on all kinds of landscape, nature and animals, but it can happen that another subjecting passes.
