I have worked an entire day with Aude, so we did a lot of different things.
After the ‘Castle shoot’, both analog and digital, we went to see Bart’s house. A beautifully situated cottage house in the Flemish Ardennes. Thank you Bart and Anja, for having me in.
A new location is always a bit harder to work with, but gives you plenty new possibilities for images. Please enjoy these analog images, taken with an old Yashica 635 camera, on a dull grey day.
and a ‘behind the scene’s image, remember, keep the lady warm.
thank you for watching, have a nice year’s end all of you,
Please enjoy Jane, posing in her catsuit.
rather difficult to make images of a good looking body in a catsuit not look ‘sleazy’ or ‘cheesy’ or whatever you might call it. (cheap looking soft erotic style)
I hope I managed in some way to prevent these images from looking that way. I’ll leave the judgement up to you.

Thank you for watching, thank you Jane, for being my patient model on this cold day, thank you to the owners of the house for granting me acces to this great playground.
Now that the days have turned dark and wet and cold, here in Belgium, time to look back at that great summer we had.

Thank you Jane, for being my beautiful model on this cold but sunny afternoon.
Thank you to the owner of this magnificent garden we could work in.
Thank YOU for watching this post.

There’s a lot to come, so come again soon.
For those who missed my latest exhibit at Gafodi Gavere, I have published the entire exhibit on my page ‘limited edition prints’ on this site. Go and Check it out.
Believe me, they are better in real life, but this may give you a good idea. 😉
see you soon,
I’m happy to say that after having to quit ‘the mansion’ I finally have found a new ‘homebase’ for shooting. Totally different in character, but as much variation possible as the mansion. Not sure what to call it yet. This will be my main location for at least a couple of months. I already posted some images taken there, but there’s more to come.
A ‘standard’ available location is a good thing for the ease of mind, for the ease of organisation and the fine-tuning of techniques and setups.
It is however important to keep on working in different locations, to expand your portfolio, get some variation and push yourself to be creative. For that I would like to call on followers that if you have a location near my hometown (Ronse – B) that I can use, to please give me a sign. I probably will come over only in a while, but it is handy for me to have a basic list of possible locations for shoots. I can always pick another one if the moment doesn’t suit you.
This said, please enjoy this image from this summer: Hot summer days – the sequel

thank you for watching
Some images from a while ago. Analog takes a little longer to process than digital. 🙂
Very hard circumstances for making pictures without a built-in light meter, with the light changing every minute. Sunny with scattered clouds. Luckily the film I use has a lot of ‘range’, so I could correct in scanning, when needed.
I enjoyed working in this castle environment very much. If any one of my followers out there owns his or her private castle, and I could use it for shoots, please shout. I will grant you my eternal gratitude and a free beer.
I think these are the last images from the ‘interim model’, I hereby want to thank her again for stepping up for this life-changing experience.
thank you my dear audience for reading this post. 😉
From a recent shoot. I have made similar images in my – Nude Incognito – series, in a black studio and with the use of flash lights. This is in a naturally lit environment. I especially like how the body shape and pose fills the square format. Also the dense structure of the floor in contrast with the soft shiny structures of the skin are appealing to me. The model had just put on a body lotion, giving some extra shine to the skin.
I hope you like it. I did, as well as my model and her partner.

A single image post.
What it says – hot summer days. Sweaty, but I added some extra drops here and there to cool my subject down. 😉
