Ruud Schobbers

I studied Food Technology in The Netherlands and graduated in 1983. From that moment on I am active in the food industry where I soon discovered the intriguing world of the food ingredients.
As a seasoned, innovative Business Development Manager I nowadays combine knowledge about Food Ingredients, Commercial Awareness and Business Development to further develop customers, sales teams and the own organization.

Another world that was intriguing for me is photography. With an analogue CANON SLR a lot of photos were taken in the nineties and discussed with other hobbyists. When the children grew up I started with the first steps in the digital world.
The start was made with a second-hand CANON 350D with a 24-105 zoom. I wanted to use this camera for sports photography, and bought therefore a CANON 70-200 f/2.8L IS. With this lens I could get some nice pictures from the soccer games of my 3 sons.
After a few years I felt I needed an upgrade of the camera, that’s why the EOS 350D was sold and the CANON EOS 7D was his successor. Lenses changed, and now the 24-70 f/2.8L, the 70-200 f/2.8L IS and a Tokina 12-24 f/4 are the lenses to shoot with. On the 7th of March 2015 I finally decided to upgrade to the CANON EOS 7D Mark 2. At the same time I changed the Tokina 12-24 f/4 for a Tokina 11-16 f/2.8. Another upgrade was made in 2016 when the 70-200 f/2.8L was exchanged for his successor, the type II.

Nowadays the main areas of interest are sports, landscapes & voyages. Whenever I go on a business- or family trip the camera is with me. When we go for a hiking tour with friends the camera is also packed. Backpack on the back, camera on the front in a special camera bag (Think Tank Digital Holster 40).

I have fun shooting pictures, I hope you like checking them out!
