First, tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Greg Theulings and live in the Netherlands. I have been taking photos since the late 1980's.

I must have been just about 18 years old when I bought my first real camera, which by then was the state of the art Minolta Dynax 7000i. This camera was fabulous as it was one of the first affordable autofocus and motor driven cameras available to consumers. It wasn't until 1998 when photography became a really serious hobby and later (since 2008) a part-time profession for me.

I have owned many cameras since 1998, starting with the Sony Mavica (with its whopping 1 megapixel sensor) and moving up to the Canon 60D, Canon 5D, 5D MKII, and Nikon D800E. My most recent camera is the mirrorless Fuji X-T1 which is great for travel photography!

After some good friends of my wife and I asked me to photograph their wedding, I've been hooked on wedding photography and started my own small business. I also have a blog dedicated to helping people new to photography understand how cameras work and how to quickly improve their skills.
