Portrait photographer Brussels Belgium

By: Sander de Wilde | April 04, 2020

Now business has ended, and the entire world is in a Quarantaine, I thought why not portray this special moment, families in hard times, in their homes, locked up. 

Here in Brussels I will bike to anyone who wants a portrait on their balcony or in their window. We plan the best time, depending on sun-side etc. and I shoot from the other end of the street. No risk of Covid-19 infection. Back home I work on the images, and the client can check them out 2 days later online, and order prints.  

This way those families in Brussels have 3 uplifting moments. 

  1. Making the appointment (yes Ik already did this as a birthday gift),
  2.  The photography session itself. (yes it's an event, fun for young and old) 
  3. The delivery of the ...

vivabid portraits
portraits in our studio

These few months I opened up the possibility to clients all over Belgium to come to my studio and have a photoshoot for almost nothing. They won their shoot on vivabid, and have the right to be photographed in the studio for about half an hour and get one download for free.

 All other images can be printed online or bought for download by our client portal.  

A lot of fun for me and the client, and most of them buy the entire session afterwards. 

However, as clients pay nothing or almost nothing in advance,  some of them tend to come late or not at all at their appointment, so I will stop working through this system end of April, and I'll only work for clients paying in advance.

After doing official headshots of all co-works all morning, I was asked to do an extra. A group portrait of the crew. But as this wasn't foreseen I really had to improvise, and there was not a lot of room. I just took there conference room, moved the tables around, and hop!  I like the fact that those table fill up the foreground, and of course I posed everyone individually around chairs and on tables. They were very happy, and so am I!

For a client we did a funny group shot. This pic is just a trial, and the real photo you will find in magazines, with some politicians claiming diversity. Hence the bags. I always first shoot with co-worker models, so, when the high profile models/politicians come everything is prepared so we won't take too much time for photography.

making of on Schuman

Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little but this was a fun assignment. Though we had to stand in heavy traffic on Rondpoint Schuman (the very heart of the European Area in Brussels) and the art director had to act as an assistant, holding my flash up straight against the heavy winds. In the end a great shot came out, with moving traffic in the background, just as they wanted.

This was a nice job, as I may say. The client needed headshots of all coworkers, and maybe a group picture too. After visiting their offices I told them the headshots were no problem, but shooting a large group of 50 people in such a small space with low ceilings could be a problem.

I proposed to shoot the individual headshots, and shoot small group pictures in the same room. These groups were manipulated into one long group, but it was to long for the banner, so in the we came up with this image, fitting their homepage. The black and white choice was mine to, so no styling or make up had to be done, and it makes just a great diverse but professional group of consultants, don't you think?
