As a photographer you have to be constantly creative. Ofcourse it helps when you get help or are surrounded by other creatives just like you! I've had the oppertunity to work with some amazing artists and brands out there, and together we searched for the perfect look & feel that we want to achieve. Here you will find a few collaborations with other creatives that are the absolute best in what they do.
Gentrepreneur contacted me to provide photos for the interviews in their upcoming magazine. We put our heads together and decided to also make a fashionspread for the magazine! These are a few of the results, you can find more about this collab and photos in this blogpost!
"DE EDELE DEELTJES"
EbbengouD is a juwelery brand in Ghent with its own unique style. The juwels are very modern, but elegant at the same time. The owner Patsy recently came up with a new collection called 'Edele Deeltjes'. With this collection they offer a special formula: if you are planning to buy someone a piece of juwelery, you can simply come by and choose the core ingredient you wish. This can be pure gold, silver, a diamand, a special pearl, the options are endless. The chosen element will be wrapped as a gift, and the person who received the gift can come back later to turn the element into a personal piece of juwelery! This way the piece of juwelery will be treasured, and actually worn. After brainstorming how we were going to put this story into a photo, we came up with the idea of using the core element in the make up, while the model is wearing juwelery made of the same element. We had a pure gold look, a pure silver look, and a pearl look. We had so much fun doing this collaboration, with an amazing team.
MARMOD is a vintage - & secondhand shop in the heart of Ghent. The vibrant colours and motives you find in the shop are a perfect representation of the enthusiastic shopowner Sara, who asked us to shoot the summercollection of 2017. Together with my favourite make-up artist and hairstylist Gaetane & Maxime, I jumped on board! Blommm also joined the party by providing us with beautiful flowers, and giving us the oppertunity to shoot right on the fields where they grow the beauties.
A great sense of style and a million dollar smile. That is how I would describe the fashionblogger Rebeca Simplement! She's very passionate about what she writes, so she contacted me to work together to give the photos on her blog that extra kick!
During spring 2017 fashion designer Ariadna Mladen contacted me for a collaboration for her new collection "MANIFEST", which is all about dancers. I was over the moon, because Ariadna has really amazing designs! We immediately gathered a team and within a week we shot our concept. We had professional dancer Kelly Vanneste as a model, who turned out to be absolutely perfect for the job. This collaboration was without a doubt my favourite one of 2017.
