Sorry to all my other favorite photographers but Greet is my number one favorite!
Let me tell you why. First of all, shooting with a female photographer is on a totally different level than shooting with a male photographer. The feeling of being comfortable is there instantly, much much easier to communicate (you know, woman amongst each other 😊) and the way a female photographer portrays you can’t compare with the way a male photographer does (technique, the female eye, … ).
And not just that. Greet is such a fun, enthusiastic and wonderful person to be with. You can’t have anything but a great time.
Need a photographer? Contact her. You will not regret it!
My first favorite quote I will share here (more will follow) 🙂
Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
(From the 1986 movie ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’)
Luc Vandorpe is very high in my list of ‘favorite photographers’, and not just because he is a great photographer. Luc is such a sweet and down to earth guy. When shooting with him you instantly feel comfortable. There is no stress, no pressure or anything like that; only a fun and relaxed time.
He also helps you search for great poses. Not every photographer does this, but I appreciate it very much when a photographer does so. As a model you can take various poses, but small details like for example the position of your hand, the direction you are looking at, head a little higher or little lower, all those details can add to the final results of the photos.
When you take a look at his work you will notice he has a preference for more older, charming locations and a use of natural light. Something I absolutely love too.
Would I recommend shooting with Luc? Of course!

Shooting with Pé is always an adventure!
How can I describe it? After having detected with him where exactly in his photo art I would fit best, he knew perfectly how to guide me out of my comfort zone. And now thinking about it, afterwards I do not regret one moment that he did so.
As a Fine Art/Art Nude model I’m used to pose at various locations (both indoor and outdoor), doing an Art Nude shoot in more public locations however was, at the moment of my first shoot with Pé, new to me.
First let me say, everything is done with the utmost caution. It is never, never ever, the intention to shock or upset people. Actually, in case people would arrive I always have a dress nearby I can put on very quickly.
Pé is also a fun, very correct and optimistic guy to be around. Because of this it does not take you long to feel comfortable. And comfort is everything; it can make or break a shoot.
Two shoots have already passed and without any doubt I can say I’m really looking forward to the next one, and the next one, and the next one …
Like to get in touch with Pé or see more of his work?

We had to wait long for it but finally finally great weather again! 😊
Therefore, during summer, I will give full priority to outdoor shoots over studio shoots. As long as the weather is great I want to take as much advantage as I can to shoot outside.
Bart Boodts is the kind of photographer who is excellent in capturing people, in capturing moments & memories.
His slogan ‘You are beautiful’ says it all. You may agree with me or you may not but to me real beauty is not what the media wants to make you believe is beautiful. It is beïng yourself, being true to the real you. We all come in so many different shapes and sizes. Do you want to live in a photoshopped world? I do not.
And this is excactly what Bart does and is really good at. No matter what kind of shoot (artistic, portrait, wedding, …), he will always portray the real you and by doing so give you great memories.
Surgeries, and chemo & radiation therapy affected my body, does it matter? No. It is part of what I experienced in life, part of who I am.
Moment of writing this I have only collaborated with Bart one time, but more than enough for me to know I can strongly recommend him.
Want to do a shoot with Bart? Here is where you can contact him:
One from the 1995 ‘Leftism’ album by Leftfield and what an album; great from the start till the end!
