Fotografie Reizen - Martin van Lokven


PHOTO TOURS

"THE WORLD IS A BOOK AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY A PAGE"
ST AUGUSTIN (345-430)



ON TOUR

Martin accompanies for almost two decades with much pleasure adventerous tours to destinations all over the world. Normal party tours and since 2002 special photo tours.

Typical for photo tours are the small groups, like-minded guests, pleasure, experiencing nature and nature photography as goal of the tour.

Depending on the tour you will have assistance in the field, lectures about nature and photography and feedback on your photographs. Martin will advice and learn you about photography and wildlife for the best photo and film moments.


THE RIGHT PLACE ON THE RIGHT TIME

Being at the right place at the right time for the best nature experiences and photographic opportunities, that is what Martin wants to share with you!


ARE YOU SUITED FOR THESE PHOTO TOURS?


Nature lover, starting photographer or advanced photographer, the photo tours of Martin van Lokven Photography fit nature and landscape photographers as well as everyone who wants to wonder and enjoy nature. During the tour you will be informed about photography as well as natural history.


MEETINGS FOR AND AFTER THE TOUR

What do you take with you, what do you need to keep in mind, what is the program and what can I do at home to make better photos during the trip? For each trip there is a meeting giving you an explanation of the photography possibilities, equipment, day-to-day program, vaccinations, money matters, what you should take with you and more. And you will meet with your fellow travelers and Martin. The location is at Martin's home, central in the country.
After the trip we meet again to discuss the pictures and the trip made.


ABOUT MARTIN

Martin is not only a photographer, he is also biologist and naturalist. He learns you about the right light and the shutterspeed to use and also he tells you lively about animal behaviour and other stuff about the natural world.

After two years work as a biologist - ecotoxicologist - he started honing his skills as a photographer from 1993 until 1997. During these years he had temporary jobs and above all worked with much pleasure as a tour leader for the biggest tour operator in the Netherlands specialized in nature travel - SNP Natuurreizen - in Scotland, Greece, Spain, France, Austria, Switzerland, India and Indonesia. In 1997 he did his last trip as a 'normal' tour leader and started his photography business Martin van Lokven Photography.

Since 2002 Martin cooperates with SNP Natuurreizen in special photo tours. Photo tours in which he worked together with SNP Natuurreizen went to Antarctica, Costa Rica, South Africa, Alaska, Botswana, Italy, USA and Tanzania. He also works with Ander Licht Reizen for the Galapagos Nature Tour and with All for Nature Travel for Tigers of India and Canada - Bears and Salmon. In 2008 Martin worked as a (photo)guide for Oceanwide Expeditions on an expedition cruise to South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula.
