Hi there, I am Erik Ruiterman (1960).
I am a parttime bird photographer based in the Netherlands near the coast. My main focus is birds.
Since my youth I’ve had a close relationship with nature and birds in particular. And now my kids have grown up, I’am able to spent a lot of time outside again, photographing birds and the occasional landscape and beasts, mostly in the Netherlands.
Due to my training as fashion photographer my view on natural beauty has changed for ever. I think wildlife and especially birds are stunning (but under appreciated) and I loves to share their beauty through my pictures. At the same time, spending all this time outside gives me the opportunity to reflect on what I see in every day life, to think things over and to see the fun of it all.
Here I like to share these thoughts with you through my posts.
