Biography


Peter Eekelder
              I was born in Westervoort (Gelderland) in 1969. Since I was young, I was very interessed in nature and birds, especially in my neighbourhood, the Gelderse Poort. First I was birdwatcher, later on, I always took my photocamera with me. After a study to become a teacher I went to Birdlife International Holland for a work placement. From 2000 until now I have a job as spokesman at the communication unit at SOVON Dutch Centre for Field Ornithology. The last years I have travelled all over the world and of course with a photocamera. Nowadays I take pictures with the Canon Mark III, including the big Canon 500mm/f4.0 lens. My pictures are regular published in magazines and birdbooks. Besides taking pictures I give beamerpresentations and make drawings.
