Introduce yourself  - 
 
IPS (or similar) laptop for Lightroom

I want to buy a new laptop for when I’m on a photo trip. So I’m looking for a laptop with a good screen to view my photos on. I’m going to use it to sort out my shots and make some small changes to some of my photos in lightroom and Photoshop.

I currently am looking at the Samsung series 9 or an Asus UX31A with an i7 3517U processor on board.

Have some of you may be used one of these or similar laptops with lightroom or photoshop? If so what are your thoughts about it?
And of course recommendations about other laptops are also welcome.

Thanks!

Just incredible... 
 
You remember a couple of days ago I mentioned a leopard taking down an impala right next to our Land Rover? Well one of the guests on my predator photographic workshop, had her GoPro running! Check it out: LeopardKill

I have not been very active on G+ lately , sorry for that.
It was my last year on the University of Applied Sciences. I was a difficult and busy time, but i did graduated :D.

Time to celebrate it! So I planned a trip to South Africa and Japan.
I will stay in South Africa (kruger national park) for 47 days and Japan 2,5 week. 
I fly to tomorrow (11-08-2012) and will be back from Japan on  (07-11-2012).
  
So for the next months I will be inactive. After the vacation I hope to have some more G+ time :D.

African Tuesday - This week's theme: Sunrise / Sunset

I have been back in the Netherlands (for some time already) after two amazing vacations! I have shot a lot of pictures and had an amazing time!
Unfortunately I haven't had a lot of time to sort everything out and edit those photos.
I couldn't resist to post a photo for African Tuesday, so this is a straight out of the camera shot :) 

This shot is a sunrise in Kruger National Park, South Africa.

I know it's a long time ago that I posted something on Google+. I'm busy with school lately, so I hadn't much time to visit G+ that often. hopefully I can visit G+ more to see those wonderful pictures everyone posting!
I see that G+ have changed a lot and I like the new look.
But enough of this and it time to post for my favorite theme here on G+:

Story

Photographer from the Netherlands
Introduction
My father introduced me to the world of photography. 
It started with airplane photography when I was something like 8 years old. I borrowed his camera and start shooting. 

Wildlife Photography was already part of the hobby, but it gained momentum after we visited southern Africa in 2007.
Not only the interest in African Wildlife growth, also Wildlife here in the Netherlands and other parts of the world.
However, this caused a problem. My brother got the same intrested as me and my father. So I decided to do something else. I therefore bought a movie camera in 2010 and started filming. I love it and I want to continue to do so.

Note: Not every photo on my profile are made by me, but some also made by my father or my brother. They have no G+ profiles and we shoot most of the time together.

I like to photograph and film:
  • Wildlife/Nature
  • Macro
  • Steam-trains
  • (Military) Airplanes
