Biography

I worked for 10 years in the computer industry before I made a career switch to professional photographer. A switch which I largely made on a 14-month world tour through Asia and Oceania. During this adventurous trip, I started to work with a semi-professional SLR camera and got more and more bitten by the photography bug. Back in Belgium, I took a three-year training to become a professional photographer. In 2009 I started as a photographer as a side job. I immediately reached for ambitious goals: I was repeatedly appointed personal photographer of then prime minister of Belgium and frequently freelanced as event photographer for the Tourism Departmend of Ostend. From a broad interest I explored various branches of photography: social reportages and event photography to portraits, studio, product and advertising photography to nature photography. In 2011 I've put an end to my IT-career and threw myself on my passion. Today, I work as a full time photographer for businesses and individuals. I concentrate on conceptual photography, portraits and industrial work. I also make underwater portraits. I published 2 books: heArt, a book with 61 underwater portraits of famous Belgian people and Soul, I book to prevent suicide with portraits of famous people.
