Corera, Tenerife, Paris

This blog is becoming more and more a personal diary in pictures, than anything else. A place for me to come back to, to re-visit times and places, experiences with friends and family. The last two weeks Stephanie and I got to spend with Ryan and Rachel, teaching two workshops and travelling around Spain and…

Approaching strangers

I love documentary photography and I love portraits, and especially the combination of both….. one thing that always kept me from exploring this area is my “hesitation” (read: “horror”) to approach strangers and take their picture. One of my favorite photographers in this area is Greg Miller and a few months ago I saw one of…

Images from my Shoot with Shanice last Sunday in Antwerp. We already wanted to shoot for a long time, but it has never worked out. A few days ago I was at her agency browsing through sedcards of models  …and when presented with Shanice’ I recognized her, and we made an appointment for a shoot….

quick blog post of yesterday’s shoot with magnificent Marine … the weather forecast predicted rain in and around brussels, so we decided to meet at my place and then decide what to do.

Anna is from Russia and visited Belgium earlier this year when it was still very cold and dark. It was great working with her – very much fun and very relaxed! …but I should not wait too long between shooting and posting – as I get much more critical with my pictures over time ……
