Welcome to my little portfolio. Nice to have you around. Take your time. I do.

ABOUT ME: I believe S - L - O - W photography is the way to go. I like to contemplate what I see and savour, what I consider, is my personal privilege
of being there.

Furthermore, if you favour "jazzed up colours", there's none to be found here. These pics are rendered "as I saw them, another by-product of my
S - L - O - W photography.

Too much "photoshopping" in the digital world. I believe that the world's population needs to change its priorities, cease demanding that nature conforms
to our demands and instead ask how we can bend to nature's needs.

We take far too much for granted. Don McLean once wrote, "If man is allowed to destroy all we need, he will soon have to pay with his life, for his greed".

I shoot primarily for my own personal satisfaction. If one of my images appeals to someone out there and it leads to a print sale, I view it as a by-product of
my own visual satisfaction. If you're one of these people, please contact me at and I'll endeavour to customise a print to your
specific requirements.

On a side note, deafness has been with me for most of my life. This has seen me (IMHO) learn to appreciate the things I see more for what they are and how
they touch me. It still amazes me how the human body can adjust it's remaining senses to compensate for an 'under-performing' or non existent one.

I received a Cochlear implant in late 2013 and my life has been enriched with the return of beautiful noise. For example, I never expected bird song to sound
so glorious. The sounds of a waterfall can make me sit there all day and just lap it up.

So take the time to look around here and please leave an opinion (or three). I look forward to reading what you have to say. I will respect ALL opinions, but not
necessarily agree with them. (;~))

Sincerest regards, Jim Roelofs
