My biography in short

Let me introduce myself to you: I am a professional photographer based in Antwerp, Belgium. For almost 40 years now, photography has been my passion.

It all started when I was fourteen years old. My oldest brother gave me an incredible present: his old reflex camera Nikon F with a very basic 50 mm f 2.8 lens.

My passion for that medium was instantly triggered. Very soon I was asked for small family reportages and the money I made with it I reinvested in better photo equipment.

My professional career however only started in 2007 when I was asked to take pictures in Nürnberg with the Nürnberger Symphoniker Orchestra.

For many years my speciality was jewellery and diamond photography. My biggest pleasure though comes from stage photography: music - theatre - opera - ballet..

And last but not least: black and white portrait photography is the ultimate reward when you may put in image not only a face or a body, but a soul as well.

quotes on photography

“There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” – Ansel Adams

  • “A photographer went to a socialite party in New York. As he entered the front door, the host said, ‘I love your pictures - they’re wonderful; you must have a fantastic camera.’ He said nothing until dinner was finished, then: ‘That was a wonderful dinner; you must have a terrific stove.”

    Sam Haskins

  • “Once, many years ago, photography entered my bloodstream. It is like a disease from which I do not wish to be cured.”

    Guy Kleinblatt

  • “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls !”
