A big surprise yesterday when Polaroid of the Day featured me on their site, Facebook and Instagram. Read the full article and look at the images they choose in the link below.
So happy to be featured by Hylas Magazine! They showcase some beautiful work by instant photographers and it's an honour to be mentioned by them. Happy!
So my boyfriend and I spent three weeks cruising the US West Coast and Utah in September. It was beyond doubt the most awesome trip of my life and we came across some amazing scenery, fauna and flora. And yes, I have the pictures to prove it!
About 6 months ago I bought my first ever instant camera. It was designed by the people of The Impossible Project and I fell hook, line and sinker for its sleek lines and matte black colour. It was what they call an instant love affair. Nothing beats that sound of the photo coming through the rollers, that anxious wait for it to develop into a precious snap shot. As with everything that I do with passion, I started scouring the internet for information, slowly putting together the history of polaroid film, and in the process acquiring about a dozen old cameras. Since that fateful day in May, I have spent hundreds of euros on film, took 3 cameras on a three week road trip in the USA with me and made some pretty awesome images. And yes, of course I will share them with you, starting right away with a selection of nudes that were shot in Brussels, Budapest, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Berlin. Did I ever mention I quite like to travel?
I will never get enough of the beauty of the human body. A few images of a recent shoot in Druum, a wonderful Bed and Breakfast in the heart of Brussels.
I love shooting weddings and two weeks ago I had the pleasure to witness Steven and Freya's big day. Here are a few photo's...
I love mixed media art work, and have wanted to try it myself for a while now. My latest shoot with Riona Neve was the perfect opportunity to experiment, and here is the result....
Colour gels, a lot of fun but not always easy to get the result you want. Here's what I did with Riona in the studio last week.
For many years now, the week leading up to christmas has been renamed 'the warmest week' by Belgium's best radio station Studio Brussel. People are encouraged to organise activities to raise money for the charities they support. This year I decided to donate a framed print which was auctioned off in Antwerp together with 24 other artworks by Jongbloed!KMSKA with the proceeds going to Betonne Jeugd, a chartity that works with troubled teenagers. Yesterday was the big day and I'm proud to announce that 'Nefertiti' raised 180 euros!
For the third year in a row, The Dominican Hotel in Brussels requested my help to create their christmas and new year card. So one afternoon mid December we headed out deep into the ateliers of the Brussels Opera and created some magic. My brief: something a bit different with a touch of David LaChapelle....
