I am a Belgian portrait and fine art photographer currently based in La Roche-sur-Yon, France.

I love both digital and analogue photography. For my portrait work I prefer to shoot with film cameras, as I feel they give me the possibility to create a more intense image. For my self portraits, digital photography allows me to have more control over the outcome of a shoot.

I am partial to flowers (especially cherry blossoms), waterfalls and pastel colors. I love to travel. More recently, I’ve been trying to get more into video as well.

If you are interested in working with me, want to buy a print or have a question to ask me, please don't hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to hear from you!
