My name is Mark Prummel and I'm working as a software tester at an IT company of the Netherlands. My hobby is photographing ships and this site is devoted to my maritime photographs. Since 1999 I'm photographing and collecting photos from Dutch general cargo ships and coasters, with an expertise in shipping companies in the North-Netherlands. I'm always interested in exchange quality photos of Dutch ships. From the beginning my equipment consisted of a simple camera and not much later I bought my first SLR camera, a Canon T50 with withangle and 200mm lenses. This camera means much better photos and more pleasure to make photos! In august 2002 I bought my first digital camera: a Sony Cybershot 1.3 Mp, and after that a Nikon D50, D70 and D80. Today I'm photographing with the Nikon D2x and D300.
