Beachlife {Personal}

  • Kate - Happiness in the water is what this photo is all about. I truly appreciate how beautiful the result is. From the sharpness effect of the sand, the brightness of the water and most especially the random expression and bliss of the people in this photo. Everyone is purely happy and absolutely enjoying the beach and I love how you perfectly captured it. The colorful umbrellas also added a lively effect and excitement. This is indeed a stunning and excellent shot. So candid and so simple yet very meaningful.

Corera Image – The Rural Workshop – Spain

Exactly one month ago I left beautiful Spain inspired and refueled by the most amazing experience ever. I had the privilege to talk to and work with an amazing GROUP of people at Corera Image, the rural workshop. Don’t ask me to explain exactly what this was all about, It’s a 2 day gathering, streamlined but still organic, with amazing speakers from all over the world. But first and foremost Corera was made by the 50 attendees who signed up for this. Open minded, willing to learn and even more important, willing to share…

Roberto, thanks for the invitation. Coreranos, you were freaking awesome!

Viva Corera!
Abrazo colectivo!

Belgian Wedding Photographers Award

Until now it never hit the blog but earlier this year I won 1st place at the Belgian Wedding Photographers award. Being a wedding photographer is the best job in the world, thanks to my couples, their wonderful families and, last but not least, my amazing colleagues all over the world reaching out and keeping in touch. Thanks again to my Belgian colleagues for voting. <3

Sjoerd | Collodion

I made these shots using the collodion process at Alex Timmermans’ studio. Totally in awe and amazed by this technique that was invented in 1850.

Pieter | Portrait

Something different but I love the result, I need to do this ‘personal work’ thing more often…

Tech note : 100% film, portra 400 on the Contax 645. HEAVY overcast day but some unicorn dust from Jonathan Canlas’ FIND lab did wonders, thnx guys!

  • Hilde Eyckmans - nice…ook de foto’s ;-)

  • kim vdw - Nice pics (as usual). Been a while. Effectively, I think you have to do this personal work more often, & you need to hang some of it in the living room!

    Art is life, when you are an artist!

    Sincerely greetings.

  • Graciella - So beautiful, again!

  • Sara - Hottie!!
