About me


 

 

My name is Gert Jan Verspui, I am living in the Netherlands close to the city Gorinchem, as long as I can remember I've been attracted to nature and everything in it, with Amphibians and Reptiles as my favorite animals to look for and photograph.

 

Photography is also something I put some effort in, I used to make slides, but went to digital in 2006, Nikon equipment is what I use.

My main interest are the species living in Europe and the African and Asian areas around the Mediterranean Sea, but when I get the chance I like to herp all over the globe.

 

Some of the species you see on my website are very rare with only few  suitable habitats left, for this reason I will not give detailed information about locations on this website, or by email.

 

To find and photograph Amphibians & Reptiles in the wild I go as often as I can on a trip, sometimes alone, but most of the time with some good friends who share the same passion.
