TURNING A DECADE WORTH OF PHOTOS INTO A BOOK – PART II

Two weeks ago I started working on a book project about my aviation photos. You can catch up by reading the blogpost I wrote earlier. I don't want this book to be just a random collection of photos I made over the years. It doesn't necessarily have to tell a story either, but there needs… Continue reading TURNING A DECADE WORTH OF PHOTOS INTO A BOOK – PART II

HOW DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH A LOCKDOWN?

How do I photograph a lockdown? I asked myself that question when the lockdown started here in Belgium around the 15th of March. I knew from the beginning that I wouldn't be able to shoot any documentary work in hospitals or anything. So I thought I'd end up with a series about emptiness.

A GUIDE TO AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY

A couple of years ago I had the luck to strap myself into a helicopter somewhere in New Jersey. Taking off in complete darkness, I was sitting with my feet on the skids.

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
