STAYING CREATIVE IN AIR TO AIR PHOTOGRAPHY

There's nothing so exciting in aviation photography as getting close to the planes. And no matter how much fun it is to stand between jets, it is more fun to have one on your wing. I had the luck to do air to air photo shoots for the last 10 years and even though it's… Continue reading STAYING CREATIVE IN AIR TO AIR PHOTOGRAPHY

’92 PORSCHE ‘NEON’ BTS

The first day of my summer holidays I spent the evening shooting an '92 Porsche. Ever since I saw 'Drive' by Nicolas Winding Refn years ago, I wanted to do a shoot with neon lights, but never happened until now. It was actually after showing pictures I found on Instagram of a Porsche shoot with… Continue reading ’92 PORSCHE ‘NEON’ BTS

HOW I EDIT #1

In this series I'll post videos that show how I edit my photos. In this first short clip I show some very basic editing.

HOW TO CREATE AN INSTAGRAM AESTHETIC

A BEGINNING AND AN END

It's strange to say, but everything I do in photography and basically in my free time, is thanks to a helicopter. And all that is now coming to an end. When I was 8 years old my parents took me to the annual airshow of Koksijde. As soon as I laid eyes on the Seaking… Continue reading A BEGINNING AND AN END

BEST HONG KONG PHOTO SPOTS

On April 2, 2018 I was standing in Brussels Airport with my wife and good friend Eric. He wanted to go away for a few days and do some fun stuff. He asked me and my wife to join him on the trip. We had no clue yet where we were going, but he had… Continue reading BEST HONG KONG PHOTO SPOTS

HOW AIR TO AIR PHOTOS ARE MADE

I often get asked on Instagram how my photos of these airplanes in flight are made. The answer is less complicated than some expect but non the less quite spectacular. Taking air to air photos is not that hard from a photographic point, but logistically and organization wise it's more difficult. First of all there's… Continue reading HOW AIR TO AIR PHOTOS ARE MADE
