Ik ben geboren in 1970 in Zwevegem, België. Ik kom uit een gezin van 6 kinderen. 22 jaar geleden ben ik gehuwd met Nathalie Renard, uit Wallonië afkomstig. Samen hebben we twee zonen, Martin (18) en Eliot (16).

Ik geef les fotografie aan het KISP Volwassenenonderwijs in Gent, Deinze en Mariakerke. Ik geef er zowel aan beginners als aan gevorderden les. Ik doe dat met veel passie en gedrevenheid. Het lesgeven aan volwassenen is een zeer dankbare job.

Hiernaast ben ik bezig met zowel commercieel als persoonlijk werk. Voor het commerciële werk verwijs ik graag naar mijn website

Mijn persoonlijke, artistieke werk is vooral geënt op de dingen die ik zelf mooi en boeiend vind. ‘Landschap’, ‘straat/stads/reisfotografie’ en ‘de vrouw’ zijn de drie meest voorkomende onderwerpen voor de lens.


I was born 1970 in Flanders, the dutch speaking region of Belgium.
I’m married to Nathalie, originally from the french speaking region of Belgium. Together we have two sons, Martin(18) and Eliot (16)

I am teaching photography at KISP – Ghent – Belgium. I give basic courses as well as advanced courses. I love this job very much, teaching to adults is very rewarding.

Next to that I do commercial work as wel as personal artistic work. For my commercial work I recommend a visit to my website

About my personal work: I concentrate on things that appeal the most to me: Feminine beauty, landscape, street/city/travel photography.

    1. Thank you, as I work not often in a studio, these are rather rare. I’ll try to include some set-up information on my natural beauty shoots soon. At this moment, I make money from photography with my corporate clients ( and with teaching. This blog is mostly free work, and I want to keep it that way for a while. Free in meaning I can do whatever I want, without having to respond to a customer’s point of view on things. It happens I get asked for this kind of work, and of course I will not refuse. Mostly customers that ask for it are very much ok with my style 😉

      1. I totally understand keeping at least some of your work free from outside influences. I do mostly outdoor work, but would like to try my hand with some of the types of work you do in the studio and on location. I really like your mansion shoots. What a great location!

    1. Hi thank you for your help, but no thanks. I have been selling images only to known customers as artistic work, never online, and apparently my customers do find me. I do believe in a slow paced evolution towards artistic excellency and fame … so no worries, and thank you for the complement on my work.
