Photographer: Rene Martens

Speciality: nature, landscapes

Biography: Rene started taking photos 30 years ago in the days of film photography. He initially loved abstract imagery but ended up spending a lot of money on processing and development. Eventually, he lost interest in the art of taking photos.

It wasn't until a few years ago that Rene's curiosity was piqued once more with the accessibility of digital photography; all of a sudden he shifted towards landscapes rather than abstracts. Rene loves to talk to people about taking photos and has inspired many others to pick up a camera and join in with his hobby.

Equipment: Canon EOS 7D, Canon EOS 450D, Pentax K100D, Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Macro, Canon 18-55mm, Canon 70-300mm, Photoshop CS5, Photomatix, Sagelight 4, Gimp.
