[email protected]ís Best of 2011: 40,000 photos, 9 countries, 3 continents


Maybe a little bit late, but here it is: My ĎBest of 2011í thread!

2011 has been a great year in regards to travelling for me.
It started in Shanghai, where I lived since May 2010 due to work. The assignment ended at the end of February, but in the first two months of the year I still did quite a bit of travelling around China on the weekends. Given the fact that I had no long vacation in 2010, I had accumulated a lot of vacation time, so one week after returning to Europe at the end of February I headed to the opposite side of the world for my first visit to New Zealand.
During the next 5.5 weeks I drove 7500km (4800mi) across this amazing country. Iíve really seen my fair share of the world, but Iíve never seen such diverse and spectacular landscapes so close to each other.
After my visit to New Zealand I flew across the Tasman Sea to Australia (my third visit there) where I stayed 2.5 weeks and visited Sydney and Melbourne as well as did a 8-day, 1600km (1000 mi) roadtrip around Tasmania.

On my way back to Amsterdam I also made a short stopover in Hong Kong and Macau. During the summer I was on the road almost every weekend and visited quite a few major European cities such as Berlin, Brussels, Zurich or Dresden as well as countless smaller ones all over the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and France. At the end of October I finally went to Andalucia for 10 days and explored Sevilla, Cadiz, Cordoba and Granada.

In total I took slightly over 40,000 photos during the year, so selecting my favorite ones for this thread was quite a difficult task.

it's nice of you to put together all these photos of different places and times.
I thought of doing this myself.

Splendit! Do you photograph for a living? And did you had a training? I'm tingking about it for me to change my course from mechanical engineering to Photography. I actuall really dont like my study. And lots op people had recommended me to do something with photography. It''s what I enjoy the most.

March 30 I'm going to a open day of the Fotovakschool, any experience?

Most of those photos were taken with a Canon EOS 550D and a Sigma 3,5-6,3/18-250mm lens.

It is just a hobby. Sure, I made a few bucks here and there, but nothing even remotely to the extend that it could be my main source of income.
Only the very best photographers (and I'm honestly still a very long way away from that) are able to do so and even then it is hardly a well paying job.
If I were you, I would finish my engineering degree which will certainly provide you with a good salary and simply do photography on the side as a hobby. If you realize you can really earn a living with photography you can still switch professions later on.

As for having training...I never attended any courses, but taught it to myself in a learning-by-doing way. Furthermore there are plenty of internet forums where you can get helpful advice.
