Als fotograaf weet je nooit of, waar en hoe je werk gepubliceerd wordt.

Hier werd een foto van mij valselijk van mijn website gestolen, en gebruikt in een extreem-rechtse Poolse Facebook-post over de Pride-parade in Polen. Gelukkig hebben mensen van Demagog het beeld als Fake betiteld en door FB late...

Yes, I panicked. How to stay alive during Covid as a small entrepeneur/photographer.I started photographing families in Brussels. Just as a mental support to them, and to maybe earn a little cash. Most important: this was a great way to get on the road, see people, although from a distance. I just n...

For the Finnish Journal of Foreign Affairs I was assigned to photograph EU Commissioner mrs. Margrethe Vestager. It made me really happy because it was the 3rd time I could meet her, and she's just really very sympathetic. She also is one of the rare Commissioners that  decorated her room ...

As a photographer I used to be happy to work for Corbis. Bill Gates' own personal agency (he loves photography) now is sold to the Chinese, and the footage will be available through Getty. Demotix, the website for freelance reports, sold to Corbis just a few years ago, now is totally vanished...

This was a crazy week. For the entire (Western) world but also for me as a photographer. I was asked to go to Molenbeek about 10 times this week. Nothing to photograph there but innocent, scary, angry or annoyed citizens. Photographing 'nothing' but buildings where terrorists lived, drank their...

For an assignment from The Wall Street Journal I was asked to photograph a CEO during an interview. This sounds rather simple, but in fact it isn't. CEO's mostly don't have time for photography, and shooting while they are talking and listening with the journalist(s) isn't very spontaneous. I arriv...

On this website you can have a look at the winners for this year.   As you know I was one of the happy few being nominated but this year it was Yves Herman that won the € 2000 prize money with his series on policemen being covered in foam, put on them by angry firemen.      ...

One day before the Finale. These are the three nominees for the Belgian Belfius press award. I'm in there with my topshot series of the famous Brussels' picknick: PickNick the streets.   Angry Brussels' citizens occupied the streets in the center of Brussels almost a year ago. They want Brussel...

No, that just wasn't possible. Ok, at the European Commission I could get a few meters from him. Though it was no more than a talking head, I stayed focused on his gestures, smiles, eyes and expressions for the entire press conference, ending up with a nice series of portraits. Probably just like th...

As a photographer every now and then I may criticize amateur photographers through Gurushots. It's a paid review and takes quite some time and effort, but it's a really nice way to help others, and to build my ego!-)   This week my review became the Critique of the Week. Don't ask me why....

The media. It surprises me that  Dutch speaking media bring the news on the Belfius Awards only by focusing on themselves only. They all mention the award won by their medium, but will not mention all the winners and sometimes not even the name of the journalist. Belgian national TV is proud of...

PUBLICATION ON NRC PUBLICATION ON NRC   As you saw in a previous post, I did quite some photographing at the coronation of Willem-Alexander in Holland. And what did I find? Only one picture was used until now, and it is this totally boring picture of mine, at least, when you compare it to all the colorful images...

It sounds like coming from the future. Taking snapshot and refocusing on your subject, or the background, afterwards. It is possible and affordable with this new camera. OK, It's just a fun gadget and has nothing to do with the art of photography, but I just wanted to show you. Have a look at the g...
