Last Saturday, I joined fellow photographer Sven Michiels for my first photo shoot of the year. A couple weeks ago, Sven came up with the idea to go to the Ardennes for a model shoot in the snow. I had never done a model shoot, so didnâ€™t want to let this opportunity go by. But since snow was uncertain, we decided to seek shelter in de abandoned buildings of Anco in Turnhout.
I had a little experience with models: I participated in 2 shooting days organized by Belgium Digital last summer. And those shoots got me excited about working with models. I didnâ€™t realize thereâ€™s quite a lot of work involved in preparing a shoot: finding the right models, location, equipment â€¦
It was a very cold day last Saturday, but it all turned out well. I had a lot of fun, as did Dasha, Natascha and Sayanna (our models for the day). I know I still have a lot to learn, but still I am pleased with the results. Here are a few samples:

Thank you Dasha, Natascha and Sayanna for the shoot. I hope we can do it again sometime. And a big thank you to the people of Hillewaere Turnhout of allowing us to use the location.
