Painting on location…
I met an Australian painter at the Golden Gate Bridge and after a good chat about the state of the world, our home downunder and a good old Aussie laugh, I just had to to take a snap of his painting with the bridge behind. Love this place!

To be named amongst +Scott Kelby's
Best Guest Blog Posts of 2016 is just plain crazy!

I feel honoured, thank you so much Scott for the opportunity, and I hope we can do this again. I have many more stories to tell, and the moment I run out, I'll make up some. Kittens on train tracks playing acoustic guitars included if necessary.

I still hope I can (finally) make it to Photoshop World one day, April in Florida sounds pretty good to me. For now however let me just say Thank you!

The simple formula

The good old question: “What makes a great photograph”? The answer is pretty simple and has nothing to do with Aperture or Shutterspeed: Create something that touches people, good or bad, beautiful or not. Create images that ask questions, explores new ideas, take us on a journey, or simply share the beauty of this world, puts a smile on our face, let us dream and be happy.

Create for yourself. If it touches you, it will touch others. Sometimes you have to see the moment, other times you create it.

In this case, it’s the most simple of all formulas: Take an exceptional beauty, perfectly styled (by Simone Bennett Smith), with amazing hair and makeup (by colourfulcutz), add some incredible “bling” (from Calleija Jewellers), and the photography part becomes pretty much a walk in the park ;)

Hello all of my internet friends,
it's the 11th of January 2017, my 50th birthday, and I've decided to officially declare this day a "have more fun" day. In a long past memory, I've retired as a singer (over 18 years ago), but today I've had this strange idea to put my camera aside and get the microphone out again. Unrehearsed, live, raw, but most of all: Great fun. I should probably practice a bit more, but hey, who cares really…

So, here it goes, welcome to the Oldies club, half a century, and still smiling!

New Year… and time to look back…
For 2017, my goal is to create more art, be it photos, paintings or music, a good mix of them all. Right now, we're in the middle of setting up my new website, I've decided it's about time to kick the old and in with the new! At the same time I'm sorting through the gazillions of photos in my libraries, delete a good amount and – who knows – polish a few that were left out over the years.

While sifting through old productions, I discovered some "behind the scenes" iPhone snaps, and thought this would create a nice little mini series. So, here's number one…

Tech: Lit with a profoto beauty dish, slight fill with a medium size umbrella, mixed in with late afternoon sunlight.

Impressions Behind the Scenes… (part 2)
Here's the second instalment of my "behind the scenes" video, this one for the 2017 campaign for bespoke jewellery designer Calleija. We shot this recently and their catalogue was released only a few week ago.

Impressions Behind the Scenes…
The calm between christmas and new year is the perfect time to play catch-up, and to get those things done that you usually never find time for. So, here's a first one, a short "behind the scenes" video from the Calleija Jewellers campaign 2016 (shot end of 2015). Another video of this years shoot (for their 2017 campaign) will follow soon…

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Guess what I got for my gorgeous wife? This little ensemble from Calleija Jewellers…

Yeah, alright, I only wish, you have to mortgage your house for it. It's the thought that counts, right? I considered a quick "drop behind the desk" during our shoot for the 2017 Calleija campaign, but no chance with the trained eagle eyes of their spanish security guard on site ;)

Anyway, I wish you and your loved ones a very merry Christmas!
