Biography Mira Diels

Started in 1987

My name is Mira Diels (1967) and I’m born in Alkmaar but I’m living my whole live in a little village called Schoorl at the North coast of The Netherlands. My profession is druggist at the local drugstore. In 2007 my present husband Dick came to live with me and that was the moment that I discovered DSLR photography. I started photography in 1997 with one of the first digital camera’s, but things got serious when I met Dick. I then started with a Nikon DSLR camera and several lenses.

Iceland as favorite

At the moment I’m photographing with the new micro four/third system of Olympus because its so much lighter than the DSLR equipment. My specialties are abstract and macro, but I also focuses on landscape, mammals and insects. Together with Dick, which is also a keen photographer, we travel mostly through Northern Europe, with Iceland as our both particular favorite.
