Na een loopbaan als professioneel fotograaf heb ik van mijn passie terug mijn hobby gemaakt.


Na mijn studies foto/film aan het Hoger Sint-Lukasinstituut in Brussel was ik gedurende meer dan 40 jaar gevestigd als fotograaf in Houthalen-Helchteren, gespecialiseerd in portret- en reportagefotografie.

 

De passie voor fotografie is gebleven en uit zich nu vooral tijdens mijn internationale reizen en omzwervingen met mijn motorhome.​

Daarnaast ben ik nauw betrokken in de werking van de FEP, de Federation of European Professional Photographers waar ik voorzitter ben van de EP-kwalificatiejury. EP - European Photographer is een kwaliteitslabel waarmee de FEP de minimaal vereiste vakbekwaamheid van haar leden onderschrijft en erkent.

Sinds editie 2019 ben ik voorzitter van de FEP Awards, een jaarlijkse wedstrijd voor professionele fotografen uit heel Europa.

Bij Lens op de Mens - Fotofestival Pelt ben ik bestuurslid en voorzitter van de wedstrijdjury.

°1952

After a career as a professional photographer, I turned my passion back into my hobby.

After studying photography/film at the Hoger Sint-Lukasinstituut in Brussels, I worked for more than 40 years as a photographer in Houthalen-Helchteren, specialising in portrait and reportage photography.

 

The passion for photography has remained and is now mainly expressed during my international travels and trips with my motorhome.
 

I am also closely involved in the work of the FEP, the Federation of European Professional Photographers, where I am chairman of the EP qualification jury. EP - European Photographer is a basic quality label with which the FEP endorses and recognises the minimum required professional competence of its members.

Since edition 2019 I am also the chairman of the FEP Awards, an annual competition for professional photographers from all over Europe.

At Lens op de Mens - Pelt Photo Festival, I am a board member and chairman of the competition jury.
