 About us:

 

Welcome to our web pages. We are Fred van Horrik and Maurice Hendriks, both aviation enthusiasts and photographers. Since we are working with the Royal Netherlands Air Force, we turned our passion into our job. After having worked together with the Air Traffic Control at Volkel Air Base, we are now based at Eindhoven Air Base, home of the transport fleet of the RNLAF. We deal with planning and control of the 334 squadron aircraft operations.

Main targets of our photography are to enlarge our image collection and to publish our material. Our photographs have been published in both Dutch national as well as international magazines such as Air Forces Monthly, Code One and World Air Power Journal.

We are both equipped with Canon Eos digital camera bodies. We have the Eos 1D mark 2 and Eos 10D systems, fitted, 24-105mm f/4.0 IS, 70-200mm f/2.8 and 300mm f/2.8 lenses which if necessary will be extended with 1.4x and 2x converters. We use 2GB Sandisk Ultra II and Lexar 40x write acceleration Compact Flash cards and portable hard disks to store the images.

In the season 2004 we upgraded our analogue Eos 3 cameras to the digital ones. Scanning slides is a time-consuming business and not our favorite waste of time. Besides this, we are frustrated by the lose of image quality after scanning the slides. Now with the digital high quality images, there is almost no loss in image quality. We hardly ever project our slides on a screen. Mainly we use our images digital, eighter for this website or for publication in magazines.

All pictures shown on these pages are taken by our selves since the early eighties. The purpose of these pages is to show our slides to those who are interested. It is not our goal to sell or trade slides. However, if you are interested in receiving prints of the published slides, please click here for order and advice. Thank you for your interest. Mind this: Ordered prints may not be used for publication in any form without prior permission from the photographer.

We hope you like our photographs. If you have any questions or comments, please mail us: info@afterburner.nl. If you like to be informed about updates, please send us an e-mail and we will keep you posted (no spam!).
