Welcome to my website. I am Wiegert Steen (Utrecht, 1990) and I am an ecologist and photographer. I have been enthusiastic about nature from a very young age. That is why I started a bachelor study Forest and Nature Conservation at INHolland Delft. After my bachelor I started a master study Forest and Nature Conservation at Wageningen. I received my MSc. with specialization ecology and geographic information systems in 2014. I started as ecologist at Bureau Viridis in October 2014.

Currently my camera equipment consists of a Canon 60D with a 300mm f4 IS lens and an 18-135mm kit lens. The 300mm lens is very flexible because it is very light and also suitable for macro photography. I use the kit lens especially for landscape photography.

I love to walk through nature, to enjoy the view and everything in it. And thanks to the digital age we can now easily share information, so I can show others how beautiful nature really is. The thing I like most about nature is that it never is the same. Nature is always changing. So it is always a surprise what I will discover next time.
