On this website, I share fractions of life I captured through my lens. I was born in 1996, I live in Belgium and took up photography at the age of 18. I mostly take pictures of nature and fieldsports, two of my passions. My mother, who is a wildlife artist, opened my eye to the beauty of nature from an early age. She is also the one who encouraged me to study Art History.
I find photography very fulfilling. I have an acute curiosity for the wide variety of country sports and enjoy meeting enthusiasts from all backgrounds. Horses is another source of inspiration; hunting scenes, racehorses, polo competitions. I am always impressed by their esthetic appeal.
Welcome to my world...

Leica Fieldsports Photographer of the Year 2017:
First prize - Game Shooting
This photo was taken at the end of a long day's small game hunting in the Belgian Ardennes. The early-morning snow had melted, leaving behind muddy roads and countless puddles to the delight of the children present.
While the hunters returned from their pegs to the cars parked nearby, we waited for the last of the dogs to come back from the hunt. It was then we saw this young boy come back on his bicycle, so proud to have preceded the dogs with his pheasant.
