Shoot with me

First of all; thanks for reading this page! Here you’ll find an overview of how I work and what you can expect from shooting with me.

Location & Timing

I hardly ever shoot outside; I like interior shooting better because of how you can play with the light and because of clutter. It’s much easier to set up a scene when you have a bit of clutter, of which I have plenty. In most cases I’ll shoot from home in Hasselt, Belgium.

Any time of day is fine for me, I don’t have a preferred time of day to shoot. I’m happy to accommodate your schedule when possible, and I like the challenge of working with the light that’s available at that moment.

Styling & Mood boards

I like a bit of chaos, mess, clutter and craziness in my pictures. For me that’s more realistic than picture perfect. Torn clothing, funky accessories – bring them along!

When it comes to posing, I don’t tend to give a lot of direction. For me the most important is that you feel comfortable. I prefer a model that keeps moving instead of static posing – more “expressing and acting” than “posing”.

Generally speaking I don’t work with mood boards. I like to see the person in front of me before deciding how to portray them. The best mood board I can give you is my portfolio.

Pictures & Results

I focus on quality, not on quantity. 3-hour shoots on average result in 12 to 15 finished images but as I like experimenting while shooting, this is not always guaranteed.. Keep in mind that it does take a while before I’m done editing a shoot. I’ll always try to get a first few images to you within a week.

I prioritize editing images for shoots I’m paid for and TFP-shoots. I provide images optimized for online use (don’t forget to credit me) along with high resolution shot for prints for personal use.

Model references

Laurent and me arranged a session in his home – it offered interesting shooting opportunities with its classy interior and huge balconies! Laurent’s partner was assisting at the shoot, they were both a pleasure to be around and they went out of their way to accomodate an unfortunate train situation that happened to me. We mainly shot fashion, portraits and also some quirky things in the corridor. I am very pleased with the results, Laurent’s passion for photography is very visible. I can recommend him to any model without hesitation. Hope to meet you next time! Poetic Minx on Purple Port

I shot with Laurent for the first time in December and it was a great shoot. Pre-communication was on point, he picked me up and drove me back to station on time and the shoot was very relaxed yet productive. I love the pictures which came out and I would definitely recommend anyone to shoot with him Smile Thanks Laurent! Looking forward to shoot again! Sofie on Purple Port
