Tomvh.be Sports photography is one of the few remaining pure forms of documentary photography. The moment happens so fast and if you are to late, it ‘s gone! It’s you as photographer, who has to make an original shot... Extreme environments & landscapes in combination with sport photography gives amazing results! That’s why I love this! In this book you will find some of my best work. I hope you will enjoy this as much as me and you can always find my latest work at my website. www.tomvh.be

Start

Sportograf

I saw the first on my PC with an intel processor (486).

Gear

In the beginning I started with the “wegwerpkodakskes”. I could only dream about digital. Digital pics??

Before that, there was my Commodore 64 & Amiga! Do you remember them? These were my first digitalexperiences.

Proximately 3 years ago, in 2007, I received some Sportograf mountainbike pics of myself and I loved them so much that I bougt my first DSLR (after 6 months thinking which one to buy)

If you start with photography, you can’t buy everything in one time... (You can... but as an amateur you don’t want to spend so much money in a new hobby) * The first thing was reading reading reading reading so much that you say “I’m gonna be crazy after all the comments in fora’s” * After that I deside to take the Nikon D80 (btw, all the brands are good!) it is just depending what brand people using in your neigboorhoud * Recently, I bought an analog Nikon F501 with a ASA 400 B&W roll, found a Kodak Retina I and a Kodak Retina III c! * Since a couple of months, I’m using the Nikon D700 as my working horse and... I like it!

Ardennes Trophy 2009

Camera: Nikon D80 Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 Shutterspeed:1/250s Diafragma: f7.1 Iso:100


The Ardennes Trophy is one of the better Mountainbike events in Belgium. Lots of riders and always a good organisation. The difficulty to photograph such events is the knowledge of the area so it ‘s very important to scout the location by google earth of go a day earlier to the location.
