Photographer & Fly Fisher, Hans Van Klinken

“We love nature and wildlife very much and we hope that we will be able to give you a good impression about how we see the world through our lenses. We live in a fragile world and respect for nature and wildlife surely can need some extra attention. When we visit the wilderness for fly fishing and photographing, we try to be in perfect harmony with the wild.”
