“If you want to be a better photographer, stand in front of more interesting stuff.”
— Jim Richardson

Welcome to Dutch Photo Trek!


In Dutch, ‘trek’ means (amongst other things), ‘appetite’ or ‘enthusiasm’. Which is what we at Dutch Photo Trek have for what we do!

Enthusiasm for the Netherlands, enthusiasm for our 4 city destinations, enthusiasm for photography. And we would like to share our enthusiasm with you!
