Maybe you have wondered when seeing my prices, or those of other photographers, 'Why does a photo shoot cost so much money?'
I have heard the question many times myself. Someone once even said to me "Why do ruin it for yourself? With those prices you won't get any customers at all." or "Why does it have to cost so much? You just take some pictures, don't you? For 100 euros per hour?!"
Have you ever asked these questions yourself? Be sure to read on to get a comprehensive answer.
The young aspiring model Elise booked a portraitshoot on location. Alisa Acx, my go-to make-up artist was booked as well! She gave her a beautiful, neutral make up look and then we decided which outfits Elise would wear. There is a bohemian vibe as well as a more fairytale-kinda vibe.

Together with a beautiful Congolese model from Amsterdam, Debby Kundenga, and my make-up artist Alisa Acx, I made a very colorful fashion editorial. We worked both in studio and on a simple and sober location nearby my appartment in Ghent. If you are interested in the results (and the brands we worked with), you should read further!
For a month, two artists and two photographers, including myself, accompanied the 'Brieljante' residents of the residential blocks on Groene Briel.
Some people have lived in these residential blocks for decades, others recently. Everyone now knows the Rabot towers, but the Groene Briel is more isolated from the rest of the neighborhood, and is still unknown to many residents of Ghent. With this project we want to put the residents and their beautiful stories in the spotlight and give them the attention they deserve.
The portraits can be admired in the coming months at various locations near the Groene Briel.
On my blog I write about the process of improving my skills, about grabbing every chance I get to become more experienced and about learning from ups and downs. Besides that, I write about everything that inspires me, like film, photography, paintings and psychology.
