Once upon a dropout in a far away land called Office, there lived a brilliant desk named Marcus. His slider was so potent that all the cameras of the land were all very jealous. Not only was Marcus sleek, but also he was also very gifted. Marcus could take photographs like no other person could. Some said that he was a lens and that his gifts were really a shiny. One day an equivocal strap became so formerly greenish of Marcus that they decided to curse them with a spell of the mumps, which would cause Marcus great hairiness. The only way for Marcus to break the spell was to boil on one foot, while juggling players, and drinking a potion containing peanuts, armadillos and hair. And all would be curly unless it was sealed with a compass from his one true love, Evel Knievel. Marcus made a touchy recovery and married Evel Knievel and they had 44 children and lived duly ever after.

What are the easiest and the hardest parts of the artistic process?
By far the easiest part of my creative process is releasing the shutter of my camera. Finding something worth photographing is quite easy too, but capturing it right is a little bit harder already. I resolved this dilemma by taking lots of pictures of the same scene. Varying backgrounds, lighting, shutter speed and aperture. Which automatically leads to the hardest part of my creative process. Namely deciding on which photo I really like, and which photos I should discard. If there isn't the one frame that jives with my mental image, this process can take weeks.

Which is your favourite piece and why?
I don't have a favorite, really. But if pressed to decide on one of my photos, it'd be "Equilibrium", because it turned out the way I wanted.

What is it about the deviantART community that makes you share your art there… that draws you to the deviantART community?
It is a friendly and helpful community. Its sheer size is amazing. And there is a virtually endless pool of good artwork to learn from and finding inspiration from.

What is the weirdest/strangest/funniest comment you ever received on a piece of art?
There haven't been any weird or strange comment on my photos. Mildly funny ones, yes. But no weird ones. That might be because it's quite hard - even for weirdos - to make strange comments on flower photography.
