September 17, 2016 | First prize Roots Nature Photo Contest 2016

Today finally the results of the Roots Nature Photo Contest 2016 were presented in national park 'Hoge Veluwe'. It was an exciting and wonderful day and I was very happy when I found out I won first prize in the 'art of nature' category with my image 'pearls on a wing'. It is one of my favorite images, you can see it in my awards page. The other 14 winning images were also very beautiful and it was great meeting the photographers that made the pictures! All winning images are in the Roots October issue that should come out next week. You can see some pictures of the award ceremony at this link.

September 13, 2016 | Three images in Roots diary 2017

Every year Roots magazine organizes a nature photo contest. Out of 4000 entries the jury selects about 100 photos’ that make in into their beautiful diary. 3 of my images are selected in the diary of 2017! Which are the dragonfly wing, the squirrel (not the cover photo) and the toadstool. Of course I am very happy with this result.

The other good news is that one of the three photos has made it into the top 15 of the contest; this will be presented on September 17th 2016 at the Roots nature event. If you like to come to this event you can check the website for more information. If you would like to have a copy of this great diary, you can buy it for € 12,50 (free shipping) in the bookshops or online at this link.

August 12, 2016 | New website online!

I feel very proud to introduce my new website! It took some hard work selecting all the pictures and writing the texts. My web designer Daniëlle Hearn ( was very helpful in reading and correcting the texts and putting the whole website together. If you ever need your website designed and built (or need a good bottle of wine) I can highly recommend her! I hope you will enjoy the pictures I selected and of course new ones will be added regularly. If you would like to be updated please follow my Facebook!

Soon I will sell prints and postcards so if you are interested please check in again or contact me at

July 11, 2016 | My own company

Today I went to the chamber of commerce to register my own company: Paulien Bunskoek Photography. Suddenly my hobby becomes work but it sure does not feel like that. I love every part of it and it gives me a lot of energy.
