Born in Ghent and living in Aalst. Married with Heike and father of Mon (6) and Miene (4). Together, my everything. In addition, I love the sea, music, sour sweets and photography of course.

For me, photography is a hobby that got out of hand. After enthusiastic reactions to my travel photos, friends sometimes asked me to photograph their children or even their marriage. And successfully, because many tens of thousands of photos later, I was able to make my profession out of photography.

My style? Spontaneous, romantic, no-nonsense photography. But above all: unusual.

Furthermore, I am quite a calm and down-to-earth guy. Absolutely no big noise or someone who pushes you too much. You can safely pose for a photo, but just as well I just walk the entire day in your shadow and I give a clue here and there. If you are only in the spotlight, I will ensure that I have captured the best moments.
