Latex Shoot with Céline

My buddy Glenn and I did a few little investments for the studio: new wood floor, extra flashes and a couple of light modifiers. They have to be tested of course.

We had Céline in the studio last week for a little shoot. Here is a pic from the shoot. She wore a latex dress from Pandora Deluxe. Thank you Céline for dedicating some time. And as always: thanks a lot to Glenn for giving me a hand.

Light Experiments with Imke

Imke was contestant for Young Miss Fashion last year. That’s were I met her for the 1st time. Since I didn’t have a chance to work with her during the contest, I promised her we would shoot after the finals. It took us a while to find a date that fit us both, but we finally got it done today.

We spent a couple of hours in the studio playing around with the lights (and an empty pizza box) and this is what came out…

Karlien Hunting

Late last year, I had a photo shoot with Karlien posing in a black latex catsuit. She wanted to have bold pics and she had arranged for a couple of airsoft weapons as props for the shoot. When I went over the shots we took, this photo caught my eye, and I decided to re-edit it and urn it into a composite picture.

Fashion Girl Shannety

 

Whenever I wanna just have some fun with my camera, Shannety is my go-to-girl. All we need is a sunny afternoon in the beautiful city of Antwerp, a camera and a couple of outfits. A few hours later, we had a couple of nice shots. Always a lot of fun!

But when she gets tired of posing, she always makes it clear to me…

When she stole my camera, I got the message: it was time for ice cream. Thank you so much for the shoot Shannety!

Rock Chick Shannety

I’ve worked quite a few times with Shannety over the last couple of years. This young lady has become one of my favorite models to work with. And a good friend too. From time to time she sends me over a series of sample images and says “Let’s do a shoot like this!”. A little while back, she sent me a mood board with rock chick and Lara Croft style pictures. We got in the studio, asked Petra Geerdens—one of my favorite make up artists—to do the make up and ended up doing this shot.

Traveling to Atlanta

I haven’t done any daily blogging or travel blogging in a long time. With social media taking off like crazy in the last 10 years, blogging for me has changed a lot. My trip to Photoshop World in Atlanta is a perfect excuse to change that back and start using my blog a little more.

Traveling to Atlanta

It’s been 18 years since I’ve been to Atlanta, Georgia. And I had to wait just a little longer then expected to get there. Left Amsterdam with a 5 hour delay due to a problem with the plane: the rudder had stuck and the KLM engineers to replace a part. Once the plane was fixed, I got there without further hassle.

It’s been 18 years… It really has been 18 years since I was down here. I love this city! Back in the days, I came out here for work so often, I called it my home away from home. Driving up to my hotel and crossing downtown… It still feels that way… It’s so good to be back here. And even the weather feels like home: Monday’s weather report calls for 2 to 6 inches of rain, thunderstorms and tornado watches.

It’s gonna be a lot of fun… I can feel it!

Nina Nesbitt at Le Botanique, Brussels

I discovered Nina Nesbitt, a young Scottish artist, via Twitter and Instagram. After releasing a couple of EPs, Nina released a full album Peroxide. She is currently touring Europe playing acoustic shows to promote that album. Last night she played at Le Botanique.

I wanted to see her show, but I was also fortunate enough to cover the show for Frontview Magazine. I have a full album of pictures up on the Frontview Magazine website.

Ilse DeLange at 013 Tilburg

I’ve been a long time fan of Ilse DeLange. I started following her music back in 1998 when she released World of Hurt. I can remember that very 1st show at Vooruit in Gent: she was hardly known in Belgium and I had a blast at that small show.

Ilse DeLange

So last night was sorta special for me: after all those years of seeing her shows, I got to shoot pictures at her show in 013 in Tilburg on assignment for Frontview Magazine.
