Niki FeijenNetherlands12006pJoined 2011
I was born in 1977 in Eindhoven, located in the south of The Netherlands.  Although it's not my profession i've been experimenting with photography ever since i was a kid. While shooting several years with a Nikon F65 analog camera i soon switched to the joy of digital photography. Started out with Sony and Panasonic I ended up with a Nikon D70 being my first digital SLR. A world opened up and after a D90 i?m settled with the fantastic full frame D800 now. an Awesome combo with the Nikon 14-24mm 2.8 lens.After a diversity of photography directions (Landscapes, Sports, Concerts) i discovered Urbex photography.

Urbex, short for Urban Exploring is according to Wikipedia: The examination of the normally unseen or off-limits parts of urban areas or industrial facilities. So basically visiting and photographing abandoned buildings, tunnels, industry, castles etc.

Most of my shots are HDR shots, short for High Dynamic Range. HDR is perfect for low light locations but it has to be subtle. 

Besides Urbex i have this crazy stairs addiction. I can spend hours underneath a staircase just to take that one awesome shot. When shot right, a stairwell or an atmospheric urbex shot can turn into something very special, almost a piece of art. 

That?s the exactly what i want to show people;

The beauty of decay, the Art of Urbex.
