I'm an Antwerp based photographer with merely a year of active experience in taking pictures. I know, it doesn't really sell well, but here's how I see it:
Going to school taught me a lot of basics about a lot of things. Which is good. It is like a house: a strong foundation is necessary for a nice home. Photography was one of those essentials, to build upon. And that's what I did.
A year ago I decided to finally buy a decent camera and start exploring my passion to its fullest. Learning by going out there, taking a lot of pictures and edit them. Google and YouTube were, and still are, two of my greatest sources of guidance. Instagram and Pinterest are the ones for inspiration and admiration.
It's unbelievable how much I've learned over the past year and where I got myself. I believe in education, but I believe a lot more in passion.
Be passionate and achieve.
