Mirelle in actionMirelle Waanders, born in the Netherlands, has been interested in photography since her childhood years. Starting with a single-use camera, she really became passionated about photography in her early teens, when she got an old Praktica camera from her brother. Ever since, photography formed a special place in her life that led to her practicing professional photograhpy at the Academy of Photography in Apeldoorn. In 2005 Mirelle completely changed over to digital camera use and photo editing.

Her special interest lies in portraits: people and animals. Truely happy while succeeding in finding the perfect expression in an animals face and showing their personality and emotions. The animal photos are shot in the wild, in captivity and at special projects, like protected game farms and rehabilitation centres for injured and orphaned wild animals. While getting in touch with those animals, close bonds and special contacts resulted in pure and intimate photos, which show her true love towards all animals. Besides the love for photographing animals, her passion extends to shooting photos of people from all over the world, with Africa as particular favourite.
