About Maaike

Who is this enthusiastic eagle photographer? Nice to meet you!

Passion for Eagles and Photography

My name is Maaike Kruijsen and I’m a passionate eagle photographer based in the Netherlands. I love to travel and study eagles and other birds of prey everywhere in the world.

An eagle’s life is so different from our human perception. They are powerful but also oppertunistic in order to survive. It’s fascinating to watch.

I also love hiking, adventure, making websites, editing videos, meeting new people, food and a good laugh.

“A good photograph is one that communicates a fact, touches the heart and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it. It is, in a word, effective.”

Irving Penn
