Covid Quarantaine? Working from home?

So if you would like outdoor portraits, studio portraits, or even portraits at your office? During the pandemic I can still shoot portraits for B to B assignments, and only if it's really important. We're both risking to get infected. But with a good preparation a portrait can be done safely., from ...

Here in Belgium these fancy portraits of kids are still very hip and cool, for their communion cards etc.

studio light is magic

individual portraits in the studio take more time and effort, but the photographer can really make light settings he could never do anywhere else.

group photography at your office

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 tha...

Test shoot

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 ...

Every guest received a portrait that was printed on ...

Risking lifes for a group portrait

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 grea...

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 sho...
