Maarten De Wispelaere is a Belgian based Photographer & IT Consultant currently working as a Research Engineer at Ghent university.
His passion for photography took off during his honeymoon in Cuba. When he came back in Belgium, he signed up for multiple photography courses and bought his first DSLR, the Canon 30D. Since that moment, thousands of pictures have been taken.
Little time after buying his DSLR, Maarten started his first photoblog (blog.bitprocessor.be), back in February 2007. This blog was active until September 2012 and hosted over 300 pictures. The last image that was originally posted on this website was “Crossing the line“, originally never intended to be the last image, although the title might suggest otherwise. These images, among more recent posts, can now be seen in the “Blog” section of this website.
