Wilfred van der Vegte photographed by Jan BrouckaertI'm Wilfred van der Vegte. I was born in 1963 and currently I live in The Hague in the Netherlands (Holland). In my 'other life' I work at Delft University of Technology. I've been making photographs since the 1970s.

Most of the photographs on this site have been made with 35mm  and 6x4.5 analog equipment, and scanned with a filmscanner. The more recent pictures were taken with a Nikon D70s/D90 DSLR. If you're interested in technical stuff I recommend the following sites, where I post photographs on a regular basis, and where you can sometimes find details like film types, exposure data and the type of lens I used:
  • The contaxg pages: This is where you can find a selection of the images I shot with my Contax G2 - an autofocus viewfinder camera with exchangeable lenses. The contaxg pages are a lively web community where users of Contax G1 and G2 cameras post images, critique and rate each others images and discuss photography-related topics. My user page is here.
  • The non-contaxg pages: This is where I post images shot with my other gear: the Nikon DSLR, the Bronica RF645 medium-format rangefinder camera and the Minolta manual-focus SLRs I owned in the 1990s. There are also a few images taken with a disposable camera and images taken with the Voigtländer Vito B that I used in the 1970s and 1980s (and which I still own).
  • The contaximages pages: This is where I sometimes post images made with my compact Contax T2 camera.
  • Woophy.com presents a map of the world on which you can search images based on the location where they were taken. Anyone can become a member and post his or her images, so there's a lot of variety in style and quality. It's a very nice and  innovative concept.

On all these websites, many interesting contributions from other photographers can be found.
