a short biography

Daan came to this world on April 14, 1991. He moved with his parents and older brother to the place Bennebroek in the beginning of 1993. Because there were always dogs, cats and other animals arround him, Daan was pretty sure, he wanted to work with this four- feeted creatures. So it was not a hard choice to pick a school. It was the 'Groenstrook'  in Aalmeer. During this college he learned the first skills of animal care. Because of an other interest, his choice changed dramitically in 2005. It was the weather! Because of that, he changed schools. After his second year, he went to the 'Heamstede Barger MAVO' . When he would finish this school, he would be able to go to the HAVO. He finished the 'MAVO' in the summer of 2007... And you know what? He changed again! He discovered that he would have to go to school for another ten years to function as a professional meteorologist.  And also  there are not a lot of jobs in this profession. So Daan decided to go to the 'MBO Wellant' in Aalemeer to study for manager animal care. He finished the study in three years (level 4!) . During this study, something terrible happened. His father died on 49 years of age because of a cardiac arrest. a huge emotional hit, but after several weeks, his family is slowly getting back to normal live. He find the camera in October 2007.  It happend during his internship. He had to make some pictures for a report. This pictures were the beginning of a great hobby. In the metter of weeks, he took the red 'Casio' camera every were he went. Daan's interest were obvious in his pictures (the weather, animals, flowers, nature, etc.) On his 17th birthday his family gave him some money for a new camera. Together with his savings, he was able to buy the Canon eos 400D. The quality improved a lot! From 2 tot 10 megapixels for example..! His father was also a serious photographer and he let some lenses behind, so Daan could give them a second live for his great hobby... ofcourse still a double feeling. He bought a second camera in 2009: the Olympus SP 590 UZ, especially because of its magnificant zoom range. Daan sold both cameras in 2011 en changed it for a new one: the Nikon 5100 D. According to Daan, it is a beautifull camera.
As a photographer, Daan makes pictures for himself, but sometimes for some local events. He also makes pictures for a local newspaper the 'Heemsteder'. And last but not least: he discovered the magnificant world of South Africa last autumn. He came back with lots of expericiences, knowlidge and... photographs!
At the moment, he still works in the supermarket, but soon also as a flexible worker for soms petting zoos in Haarlem. Finnaly in his own proffesion!
Other hobbies Daan has, are fishing, go out, traveling, theatre, gardening, etc.

have a lot of fun on this website in the name of Daan Hendriks!
