Message to my wordpress-followers


dear wordpress reader followers of this blog.

this page is about to come to an end …

… I have been able to link my email followers to the new host, but apparently WordPress is not enabling a transfer list for wordpress followers. WordPress followers have a wordpress ID and are not subscribed by email. They get a WordPress reader message.

I do have your wordpress ID, your names but I cannot transfer them to my newly hosted blog on my own domain.

This means that as soon as I quit this WordPress hosted domain, you would no longer be messaged of my new posts on  , that would be a shame, wouldn’t it?

May I kindly ask you to renew your subscription on my new site, to make sure you do not miss any of my updates on my blog. I think this still can be done trough your WordPress ID, and it certainly can be done trough the email subscription. I prefer email, so I can send you exhibit invitations or other important messages personally.

This can best be done at the bottom of any page, under the + sign.

Thank you for following me, please do not hesitate to comment/discuss/interact with the new blog.

best regards,


ludwig desmet


New Looks


Hi, I have been looking for a different WordPress template that gave a little more appreciation to my pictures. This new template leaves the entire width available for pictures now, I think it looks a lot better. If you miss the previously available – archive – subscribe – latest writings and other options, they are now on the bottom of each page, hidden under the + triangle. Please enjoy this natural light portrait of this beautiful lady below and let me know what you think about the new look of this blog. 🙂



2015 in review – Thank YOU!


I would like to thank YOU, my audience, followers, single time visitors and accidentally passing by visitors. You were great and numerous this year. I would like to thank you because you showed interest in my work, and you’ve shown your approval for feminine beauty by stopping by regularly. In short, you were over 13.000 in numbers, and you viewed this blog over 80.000 times this year. I felt like 2015 was a springboard to something even bigger in 2016. I have three confirmed group exhibits in 2016, I have a lot of plans and good contacts for new ideas, I have a lovely wife that supports my artistic occupations and I have a bunch of models ready to work with me again next year. I could only encourage you to participate wherever you feel like. Comment, ask questions and share. Next to this I would love to express my gratitude to the models I could work with. They posed for me within their own abilities and with their own fears. You did great, women of the world. I would also like to thank the owners of the different locations I get acces to, for they just opened their doors for me one more time in 2015. As I do prefer to work ‘on location’, they are invaluable to me. And last but not least I want to thank my wife Nathalie, for standing next to me, in every sense. She will probably have a greater part in my work as she will become my assistant/stylist/hairdresser more often next year.

Enjoy New Year’s Eve, and see you again in 2016. THANK YOU ALL!
