Even though I had seen many parts of South Africa, I had never been to the Western Coast, so for our birthday weekend, Kim and I went to the peaceful Paternoster. The winter sun gave a lot of great light.
At the young adult camp of NewGen Stellenbosch in Franschhoek (May 2014) we wanted to give the young people in our church a vision for their lives. Often people ask themselves: “What’s God’s plan for my life?” With this study I tried to alter that question to “How does my life fit into God’s plan?” […]
Kim’s brother lives in Harare (Zimbabwe) and we went to visit him, but of course, also took some time to visit the beautiful Victoria Falls and view this wonder from both the Zambian and Zimbabwean side.
Femke & Johan had their civil wedding a week before their church wedding and party. They asked me if I could document the civil wedding, which I happily accepted. When it turned out to be snowing I convinced them to do a quick – unplanned – photoshoot to take advantage of the weather gods and […]
A few months after arriving to South Africa, we hiked up Stellenbosch Mountain and pitched our tents. It was windy and freezing, but we got a great story out of it. On the way up I thought I was going to have to give up, being unfit and carrying a 10kg bag. I however made […]
The biblical idea is not so much that there is one divine essence in which Father, Son and Spirit participate. Rather, it is that there is one God, the Father, but there are also two persons who are equal to him and each other in such a way that they are one being, one God. […]
My wife’s dad lives very close to Kruger National Park and he has an amazing 100-400mm zoom lens; the ideal combi for great photographic fun.
From 2007-2013 I studied at the Evangelische Theologische Faculteit in Leuven (BE). A lot of amazing opportunities to try event photography.
I’ve been on Youth Camps (both as participant and as leader) tons of times. The last time was a few weeks before I left Belgium for South Africa, and we went to Czech Republic with its beautiful Prague.
The wedding of Maaike & Stefan was the first wedding I did as a second photographer (with 3GUNNA being the first photographer). It was fun not having too much responsibility, but at the same time being able to tag along for all the parts of their special day.
At the closing chapel service of my final year at ETF I was asked to lead the meditation. I decided to talk about a challenge that faces the whole of the academic world, Christian or not; not staying in an isolated tower of knowledge.
From 2009-2013 I worked for the student organisation Ichtus. During the many events, I was able to take a lot of pics.
I’m someone who rarely takes snapshots with my camera – I mostly carry it to events. Here are a few of my rare snapshots.
When Mark as Story by David Rhoads and Donald Michie came out in 1982 it wasn’t received well at first but two decades later it has become clear that the book helped lay the foundation for a new approach in biblical studies: stepping away from the historical-critical approaches to focus on the literary aspects of […]
I’ve been fortunate to share my life with a group of awesome people and their families at my home church in Leuven.
So far, the only band I’ve shot twice is Enter Shikari and on each occasion, it’s been an absolute pleasure, but also a big challenge. The band simply doesn’t stand still.
Celebrating Christmas and New Year with friends and family in Belgium.
My little sister Nienke and her husband Silas had their civil wedding on the evening before their big party and church wedding. I took some pictures and we did a little photoshoot as well.
I’ve never been a huge ska fan, but seeing these icons of ska and punk rock music perform is always special.
Before Kim and I started dating I had promised to show her a cool castle somewhere in the Ardennes. So the first weekend we were a couple we went to Bouillon with its stunning castle. And we also took the time to visit the abbey of Orval. Why not show here some more Belgian pride, […]
