LiVe For Photography:

Black Ferns

I found these ferns  along the waterside in a park.  The shadow and light pattern on the leafs dragged my attention.
The sparkling reflections of the light on the water serve as an ideal background using a small DOF. In post-processing I converted the images into black & white to give the pictures an almost graphical appearance


A Dandelion’s Life

Club69 K’s choice

Last Friday I was one of the lucky bastards to enjoy an exclusive K’s choice gig for only ’69 x 2‘ persons in the small marconi-studio of  the belgian radio station StuBru.
I was really blown away by their performance -once they are on stage, their energy level  is incredibly high- and I really wanted to enjoy the show itself. Nevertheless; I also took some time to take a few front row pics!

From start to finish

Since I am passionate about both ‘sports’ and ‘photography’, I am evidently  interested in photographing sport events. In this blog post you can find the photo series I made of the Cross in Betekom a while ago.

Although I don’t have much experience in this very specific branch of photography yet,  I aimed this time not to make only the ‘traditional’ sport images.
I tried to play around with lines and shadows, expressions and typical things.

I choose Black & White for uniformity of the series.
Also in my opinion; patterns, light, expressions, … come out better without the distraction of color.

Thanks for looking, feel free to comment!

Some pics I shot of the ‘BigBandLier’ during the last repetition of  the Havana club concert which was held in Lier the day after. Continue reading


Sunday afternoon was a big day for ‘vredesactie‘ belgium. They organized a peace action in which they tried to enter the private domains of the NATO to -symbolically- close it for once and ever. About 1000 people  went to the NATO headquarters in Brussels  to take part in the international non violent action NATO GAME OVER. 500 activists were arrested only 2 succeeded in entering the NATO. Nevertheless, they their point!

I attended a playfull parade in which the funeral of the NATO was ‘celebrated’. Literally!
