WHO AM I
Thank you for visiting my website. Everything waits to be noticed. The beauty of creation is all around us. The photographer is there, at the right place, the right moment, waiting in awe for the right light to appear. This is our journey in the world. When we finally find the place in our own heart everything comes to life when the light of God touches us and we transform into His beauty.
My name is René Pronk. Since 2013 I have been living with my wife Helga and my son Dieter in Croatia. We live in Gorski Kotar at the beautiful river Kupa. We run a translation company, have an organic agricultural firm, run a humanitarian organization, rent holiday accommodation, and of course the photography that is my biggest passion in life. I studied photography from 2002 till 2008 at the Academy of Arts in St.Niklaas, Belgium. I was born and raised in the Netherlands where I worked as a pastoral and social worker. My wife and I love living in Croatia for it is a country with so much natural beauty. We invite you to come and experience this country yourself.
A few years ago I decided not to take part in contests and competitions anymore. I noticed within myself that those competitions didn’t stir up the creativity and rewards that I found complementary to my photography. So on this page, you will not find “impressive” charts of prices and trophies. I am not a trophy hunter. My biggest reward is your appreciation of my work and constructive criticism on how to further improve.
