About the author of this Photography and Travel webpage, Tim Afken.

My Professional Background is Contract Management Execution for large scale projects (EPC)m ranging from power plant construction (mainly EPC Energy from Waste) to large civil infrastructure project like Olympic Games London 2012 and as of to date Offshore Wind Energy. Key experience in FIDIC and NEC Contracts, Primavera and Earned Value Management as well as major claim management with focus on international markets and english law.

The passion is traveling. No matter of your interest, go out and see what’s out there. This world has more to offer then the typical everyday rat-race and the media influence. The best place I’ve ever visited was Tibet. I’m also very fond of the Himalaya and prefer the desert to the jungle. Best place to find me would be left beyond the horizon. Preferred type of traveling: Overland.

And with this, my other passion Photography, is well suited.
Photography Kit

Olympus user since the original E1. My current kit consists of:

  • Olympus EM1X
  • Olympus OM1
  • 8mm F1.8 Fisheye
  • 8-25mm F4
  • 40-150mm 2.8

and the brilliant Olympus 150-400mm F4.5 TC1.25 IS Pro for everything Wildlife.

Beside Olympus I'm also very fond of Leica M. My trusted M9P with the 35mm Summicron and 50mm Summilux is always in the bag.
The Land Rover Defender 110

Why a Land Rover and not a Toyota HZJ, a Mercedes G Wagon? Probably one the most asked questions someone in a Landy would receive. Why no HZJ or G Wagon? They are brilliant 4x4, but they lack one very important factor for an overland vehicle: personality. A Land Rover - together with the VW Campervan - is the vehicle of which adventure dreams are made of. They let everyone dream, want to go on an adventure of a life time.

Interior self-made. Modifications installed:

  • ExTec Hard Tent Popup Roof
  • Large roof Window
  • Warn Xeon 10s Winch
  • Heavy Duty suspension
  • Long range fuel tank
  • 70L of fresh water
  • Water Boiler & External Shower
  • Diesel Heater
  • 45L Fridge & Stove
  • 270degree Awning
  • Double Battery and Solar power

And by the way, still not sure what to name my Landy. Mostly called “Dicker” (fatty).
