MATTHIJS MEKKING

The guy behind the camera


About me

I am a self-thaught photographer from the Netherlands. I take pictures, mostly but not limited to, of artists and cultural events. My work has been published by 3VOOR12, Doornroosje, Festivalinfo, Popronde, and others.

Furthermore, I am a software engineer. I design and write software that deal with networking, focusing on performance and security. I participate in the IETF, studying and improving Internet technologies and operations, editing and reviewing technical documents and Internet standards. My focus is on DNS and DNSSEC. I believe in open source and open standards.

Get in touch.
