Our friends Kate & Chevaan recently got engaged and we celebrated with a nice dinner and a photoshoot to precede it. The sun setting over Mouille Point and the diversity at the Green Point Park created a nice frame for the pictures.
In May and June, we went to Europe, originally for just the WordCamp in Cologne, but we combined it with Kim doing research in Vienna, a short trip to Bratislava, visits to friends and family in Belgium, and a holiday in Estoril and Lisbon to celebrate our birthdays.
Kim’s dad lives close to Kruger National Park and it is always an absolute joy to venture into the park.
Friends of mine were performing in Veladraco and it was a great opportunity to also see a Jack Parow show for the first time. Great vibe.
Around Christmas we went to visit Kim’s mom in Scotland, friends and family in Belgium, and some friends in London. We both had never been to Scotland or London before and it was a great time exploring these beautiful places.
Last November our whole WooTeam when to San Francisco for our annual meeting. It was an awesome time seeing most of my colleagues in real life. Afterwards, me and a few others also visited LA.
A few weeks ago our team met in San Francisco. We’re quite deprived of good international punk line-ups in Cape Town, so it was great being able to shoot New Found Glory and support.
The Wolfmother and Editors show in Cape Town was the first show I’ve shot in South Africa. It was good experience and fun to see the dynamic of both bands on stage.
The parents of friends have a house in Greyton, so we could have a cheap weekend away there. Great company and great scenery in this beautiful little town.
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.
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 then 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 that they I convinced them to do a quick – unplanned – photoshoot to take advantage of the weather […]
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 […]
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 second photographer (with 3GUNNA being 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.
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.
I’ve been fortunate to share my life with a group of awesome people and their families at my home church in Leuven.
