2014 looks like it's going to start with a BANG! I'm very proud to invite all of you to the "Back To Back" exhibition, starting the 24th of january, at the Alley Gallery in Hasselt. The exhibition will be a classic "double bill" featuring brand new paintings by my lovely Katrien and spanking new photographs by yours truly. Come on over and join us for a cool evening with DJ Bakeliet playing the 78's...

Okay okay, I know... This is supposed to be my photography site, but I'm just to freaking proud of my latest shortfilm... It's called Perfect Drug, and it will have it's premiere tonight at the International Shortfilmfestival of Leuven. We've been getting some really nice reviews, so people are getting more and more psyched to see it. For those of you who can't wait, here's the link to the trailer... Enjoy!

When you're asked to direct a music video for The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, you just know you are in for a treat... It was truly a labour of love and I'm very proud of the result. The shoot was a lot of blood, sweat & tears but fortunately also a lot of laughs. Thanks to everybody who helped me out, now go and check the freaking video, alright!

Since a few months I've been shooting portraits for Zone C, a three monthly cultural magazine. It's a nice new challenge, and a great way to get some interesting faces in front of my lense. First up are the girls from HEK. You can check the pictures in the Editorial section.

It's a Hickey, Hickey Underworld...When Jonas called and asked if I wanted to be part of this very absurd series of promo pictures for The Hickey Underworld, in which we attempted to do remakes of some very classic film stills, I didn't have to think a second. For all you people that aren't film buffs, I also included the original film stills, The Evil Dead and Escape from New York... As you can imagine, the shoot was hilarious and rest assured, no wigs or prosthetics were harmed in the making of these pictures.

You may have read about it in your local newspaper or through the good old word of mouth: Fence is back and boy, are they cooking... Here are some promo pictures I took with the guys while having an extremely pleasant sunday afternoon. Also be sure to check out the live performance I shot of them playing "Walk The Talk", their brand new single. The full movie of this live session, where you can see Fence play their entire new album live, will be released soon. So keep your eyes peeled!

It's been a while, and it's sure been busy! First up are some pictures of Mad About Mountains, the solo project of Piet De Pessemier. You may know him from bands like Krakow, Noordkaap, Monza, Brothers Deere and even The Sore Losers. His album sure is a treat, be sure to check it out. Aside from these promo pictures, I also made a small "making of" his album, you can check it out here!
