I am Stef, alias, “OstendNomadography”. I’m in my mid 30’s, born in the Belgian coastal town of Oostende (Ostend). I consider myself a lonely ranger, with and without my camera. I always have a possible trip in mind, or on my schedule.
Oostende is always inside me. As a proud patriotic citizen, on my blog you will see the beauty of my hometown too. I hope it inspires you all to have a visit to my lovely city. It could be a nice combination with Bruges only 25km further, wouldn’t it? Would you like information about my city? It would be my pleasure to help you out!
What is the aim of this blog? After many years on Facebook, sharing my pictures I’ve snapped while on my holidays and adventures, I’ve had a growing interest in photography. I started to see photography differently, from a nice memory to a more artistic view. I had the impression that I ‘needed’ something else. A community more focused on traveling, photography and much more.
I wanted to be inspired and inspire others. About one year ago, in March 2016, I thought, “Why not give it a try on WordPress?” I’ve already changed the theme a few times, colors and such. I’m finding my way and still enjoy the blogging world to the fullest. My goal is to create a visual journey through my adventures.
A side note, my native language isn’t English, but Dutch. I ask you please forgive grammatical and spelling errors.
Next to traveling and photography, my interests are in military history, National Geographic and Discovery Channel things and reading books. As well as soccer, my favorite teams: KV Oostende and West Ham United.
The last year, I’ve tried to make some progression in my photography skills. Taking a basic course on how to use the settings on the camera, about what an ISO is, and composition. Also, I have learned the importance of searching and capturing with my eyes at exhibits or when reading informative articles.
