Athens •  Travel

Athens. Why? Partly because Marc Forne convinced me to go and visit this boiling city. Cheap Airlines take u quick and safe. I arrived on a Sunday, and surprisingly enough this day brought me a lot of sightseeing , thanks to the National Museum Day the main ancient museum and even the Acropolis (normally 30 euro's  were free. Walking up the hills with the last sun flares on my skin and watching one of the oldest remains of the Greek History made it feel like something very magical. On one after noon I guess I saw the most of Athens sightseeing. The other days brought me to the sea side with the Modern Museum and new complex made and payed by mostly rich harbour owners. Also the Hydra Island is worth the 2 hour boat ride , especially when u go on non-holiday season! 

Wanna have a mix of relaxation and historical amusement, Athens is one of the best places to go! Also food wise Athens won't let u down, try to go to Athenee Athens restaurant were (their menu said) Rene Magritte and other creative people went to spend their time.

CAUDALIE  • Products

The French cosmetic brand, based on natural ingredients from the vine and grapes, has opened more than forty SPA Boutiques in twelve countries worldwide since 2012. In May 2018 followed the very first Belgian Boutique in Bruges. I had the honor to meet Mathilde and capture her before my lens. A woman with passion and a sense of business. Caudalie has a very strong story right from the start and until now this is the key to success. The basis for this are the Natural ingredients based on the grape. Because the holidays are in arrival and the cold weather is equally present, it is of course important to continue to hydrate your skin. A perfect kit for this is the cleansing products with 98% natural ingredients. Mathilde Thomas had not forgotten me and let me try this kit. I myself start with the Instant foaming cleanser as a basis for pure cleaning. Then I follow with the Moisturizing Toner that is applicable to all skin types. The most nicest about this is that it gives your skin a fresh color. I finish with the Gentle cleansing milk, a perfect product for the winter to leave your skin moisturizing. So you want to make the world a better place for everyone, Caudalie is the place to be.


PIERRE MARCOLINI  • STORY

One of the most famous worldwide chocolates. 


Thanks to my most lovely client and friends at @pure I connected with Marcolini when I was capturing an event for there new spring/summer collection. They loved my spheric emotional approach so much that we did a meeting to discuss If I could maybe give it a try to do there online e-commerce. I never wondered when I started my photography dream I would ever do interior or even Food Photography and here we are now, shooting almost every upcoming collection for one of the most famous Belgian Chocolats. We started with capturing there winter pop-up waffles. The content is used worldwide. 


PICKING UP THE PIECES

Were should I begin. With leaving my tears behind or accept that they are there. My last article was about the trip to Paris. My mental health was on a breakdown. I had to get out. Luckily I had the support from Boni then. It was nice. Maybe I should try to tell how it started.. It happened one day.. I don't know exactly when. But I woke up and nothing seemed to be interesting anymore, nobody interested me. I felt empty. My heart was broken, my soul lost. I could better just died. It's not easy to talk about. Like some friends say..Their are multiple Robin's..But the one I miss the most is the one that could't hide his smile from how much he loved life.. I don't know if he will come back.. I hope so.. anyway..Last weeks I literally didn't eat much. I didn't have the feeling to eat, to be here to do anything. Yesterday everything went deeply down for me. I was sick. I felt my whole body was at his end. No energy to stand up. I realized then, if I wanna live. It has to change. So let me try to pick up the pieces.

Robin. 

Geoffrey.

Close friends know my emotions can switch in a second, every minute I’m on the edge of happiness or a depression. Sometimes I’m on the top of the world or I just really wanna die. It is how it is. No secrets. The real me is there when it matters, otherwise it’s Geoffrey a dark sick animal that loves the night , the smoke, and creates his own imaginal world.


Travel • PARIS

Depression. 

Everyone went on vacation. I just layed in bed. Nothing wrong with that when ur not feeling 100% ok. Anyway I decided to arrange a last minute trip to Paris with the boy I was dating then. (Yeah I'm saying then..). Paris is my third home after Spain (but that's also not happening anymore because of work.. to be correct, because of my PART-time job). It's always to enjoy the city without being there for Fashion Week, so then it's not about work our being stressed to not miss a show. 


Braun Notes.

There are a lot of cool alternative restaurants and cafe's in Paris. Like the one I love to go to when I'm visiting the city of LOVE is located at Palais du Tokyo. U can chose here between the expensive or the cheaper one! Your choice! Braun Notes had a beautiful french farm vibe with some exotic dishes. I could really recommend this place, because it's close located to La Fayette and there is also a cute park where u can start your morning!  

Gustav Klimt

The 11th arrondissement. Gustav Klimt | Atelier des Lumières. A visual/sound expérience which u should see once. The best work of Gustav Klimt projected in a huge beautiful old fabric. 

Louis Vuitton Foundation

Modern Art. Always nice to visit this museum, it's like a habit. Modern art already interested me more then the Masters of the past. There is a bigger dialogue about how we can change the world, how artists see what's going on and make beautiful things of it , which always will surprise us and put us back on the right direction. Because it's easy to forget very quickly which way we are going to

The end of a beautiful story.


SELFPORTRAITS  • VLEUGT

Yeah,

I promised my self to make more self portraits when I made that one portrait in Spain. So yeah, this one is kinda commercial but the next ones I promise are going to be more arty farty! 


Huawei  • BOZAR

Up-and-coming photographers live their passions and reveal their true selves.
Freedom of speech through the democratization of creative tools is one of the great developments in this awakening millennium.
A photographer is a person who conveys meaning by looking, someone who is able to evoke emotion and trigger inspiration through his own unique point of view.
The exhibition ‘Reveal The Real You‘ portrays a generation which looks at life on a screen and translates its fantasies into everyday experiences. Each in their own way, they are pioneers who challenge the philosophical and technological boundaries to conquer the  world of art, fashion, design and photography.
For ‘Reveal The Real You’ Huawei launched a call to upcoming Belgian photographers to share their passion by sharing images, made with a smartphone or camera.
More than 1.600 contemporary artists and creatives took part from 7 to 30th of November in the unique photography contest on Instagram by using the hashtag #revealtherealyou and @huaweimobilebe.
The 50 most inspiring pictures are exhibited here in BOZAR.


Esprit  • K-way  • Brussels

Hi, 

Yeah I didn't had the time to write something down because I was busy these days with working and giving myself the change to buy me some Christmas gifts for the New Year to begin. So let's start. I went to the opening of Esprit in Brussels, basic clothes, mainstream and yeah maybe sometimes u can find one piece but I guess you should really have a good day haha. K-way was something else, I had the chance to photograph their store and event of the opening of their first store in Brussels and I have to say K-way is history and future. Their old school K-way raincoats will always exist, but their new designed pieces are beautiful! That's why you already pay a designer price for it, but if you ever in the area of Dansaert in Brussels, don't forget to have a look at their store!


Dr. Martens • Brussels

This event,


Made me realize how much I love capturing real moments. The feeling of being one and forgetting everything, fading away with the night of the city. It's strange to say maybe but that night I also realized how much I love Brussels, this city has so inspiring people. Young talented souls that are trying to find or expand themself in this big city which will always search for their real identity, Brussel is a mix and that's what makes Brussels the perfect place for Dr. Martens to settle. 

Music tip 




Sued Tirol • Antwerp

Made some shots for a Sued Tirol event in Zaha Hadid creation "Havenhuis". This building is cruise ship next to the water, or it feels you're really on water because it's floating. The minimalistic aesthetics are my kind of thing, so I felt good in this place to capture some nice moments during this night 

- soon online


Dr. Martens • Brussels

Uber • Brussels

Quick Service.

Uber gave me the chance to try their services out in Brussels and I have to say, I can't live without anymore. Just order your ride and he will be there within 10 minutes. The service is great! Friendly and smooth. Also u don't have to mind to akward pay at the end because it's all smartphone proof! The Black Van is my favorite, it's great when u have a lot of stuff like me and you're shooting assignment in Brussels to transport quick and easy. Also if you wanna party with a lot of friends, order one and you will have the perfect night!

Travel • London

Hi,

Peeps. I was laying in bed this week around 2 am wondering about how much is going on in my life.. from student to work. A big change. Being part of the stuck society. That’s why I thought I needed a break, to explore myself again and think about what I really want without any distraction. So here I’m, In England, London. The country that decided they want independence. It could be a good case, everyone has the right to be free. And a little bit stubborn...

The Mondrian Hotel, wonderful brunch, famous people

Maybe I’m over emotional. But that feeling when yr finally on yr bus to start on that little adventure again that u did a lot in the past. A moment for yourself. A mental trip. It isnt just a trip for me to London. It’s like having quality time with the best friend in my life, me. I hope some of u guys know this feeling. You heart jumps over and your eyes are producing glas tears. Because yr body feels what life is. It’s exploring unseen grounds, people and ideas. If you can, go and explore. Don’t hesitate.. (also UBER  drived my to this amazing private sauna at night, safely and with a fucking good service!) 

TATE MODERN

Still the thing u have to visit when ur in London, each floor has one/two open exhibition's and their collection is marvelous from Yves Klein to Monet. Also outside the Tate their is a good place to spot squirrels!


H&M Flagship store • Antwerp

Hi, 

 I’m back guys and this week I went to the opening of the new first Flagship store of h&m in Antwerp. The building at the outside is marvelous and gives a really nice impression. But when your inside you arrive in a light, bright mirror palace were the clothes now have a little bit more space to breath then in other stores, it’s still packed but the interior gives u a impression of time, so u can breath again while your expanding your closet. The best thing in the store is hidden on floor one where the men department is located. The dressing rooms. Green big curtains, green marmer and a lot of mirrors to look u self in the eye and say “would I wear this to express my ideas and in life”. Why the name Flagship store?  Because clothes and home decoration is combined with each other, so the shop experience is getting bigger and better. 

So if you ever visit Antwerp. Just go in and let your soul do the rest


Travel • Budapest II  • PhotoDiary


Travel • Budapest

"My first day"

a very common quote of friendly people I get to know at the Szimpla Kert , a trendy evening mekka for local and people from abroad to connect with each other. Like an Italian guy I met said "The expectations for this city weren't very high, but never judge in advance". I never had a city where public transport was so easy (even from Airport to central Budapest). The city is a mix between Berlin and an Italian rulal city. Budapest get's you in the first seconds, it's a place where people really are living, creating and making this their home. That's why you don't see a lot of Tourists on the street , because this place would be a 'second' destination on your list.. but it should be on the first. 

Lifestyle does include welness, you can't ignore this in Hungary. That's why you should go to the Széchenybaden were pools are filled with local minerals and you would have a second new skin to begin your life with a different view after u expierenced this wonderful hidden treasure.

- More is coming up regarding Budapest tomorrow (: 


Eye Candy • Antwerp 

Capturing content for EyeCandy their first Autumn/Winter Campaign. They are a Antwerp based opticien with love for the best frames in this industry, from Prada to Tom Ford and Dior. I will do their social media and website from now on, so keep posted/updated about eyewear @eyecandy 


Giuseppe Virgone • Brussels 

Guiseppe Virgone,

A new talent, straight from Brussels showcased his first debut in the coolest location ever, a skate park. This cool location embraces his work which breath's youth and darkness. But the kind of darkness that had a positive vibe around it.. like your trying something for the first time, its strange in the beginning but afterwards u have a feeling like "fuck I wanna do (in this case see) this again". His black looks switched with red details and finally full looks. Some looks really breath because of the openings , in some case they translate the gape that fashion these days has and the stigma for change. A collection which really open your eyes! Interesting snits and especially space to breath, don't forget his name because u probally would hear more from this guy in the near future. 

Also I hope u guys had a great weekend, because I did (: 


Paul Smith x Pure • Antwerp

Paul Smith,

His fall/winter collection 17 is bringing back the summer in the cold winter days! Feathers are the new thing this winter... no big prints but gentle details. Perfect snits and quality is where this London Designer stands for. Antwerp was the location for their first Flagship Store in Belgium, and I had the chance to photograph their new interior in collaboration with Pure.  I also did their runway show of Paul Smith's fall/winter collection in Paris together with Enfnts Terribles, you can find the pictures here!

H&M 25 YEARS • Fosbury and sons 

25 YEARS,

That’s how long H&M has been part of Belgian’s Fashion scene. That's why they are giving something in return for this long lasting relationship with this little but ooh so important fashion country. 

So H&M created a special expo for their anniversary. The expo offers you the highlights of 25 years fashion through the creations of H&M collaborations with the biggest names in the industry as Comme Des Garçons, Maison Martin Margiela and more to explore! Even the  Met Gala, a big important event each year in celebration of fashion is giving h&m a spotlight for their own designers. Banks and even Janelle Monae took a chance on it. And I have to say the pieces really embrace these artists on the best way possible. This year another artist has given a change to show his creations to the bigger audience. And this year men should consider to BUY something on 2 november, because it could be the first and last time u could. Erdem, I’m looking forward to it! 

U can still visit this expo until the 8th September at Fosbury & Sons in Antwerp! 


PS : If u looking for basics, just buy them at COS or somewhere else hha


RAINS • FOOD

A heavy work week,

but enough Relaxation is the key to a happy life, not. 

Rains opened their first store in Belgium this week, finally! It is located in the well known "Kammenstraat". Rains is famous for their typical fabrics and rain jackets. But ofcourse they offer more, from fashionable rain hats to even pants (but be careful if u take the trash outside, that they dont think u are the trash). A collector item or one of the best pieces from my perspective are the genderless clutches. They refer them as laptop cases, and they come in different colors, a real piece consider to buy

I also went to Brussels for a day, after a shoot to eat something at Kumiko (budget p/person 17 EUR) with a ex-boy friendThe main inspiration behind their meals is mostly the Japanese kitchen like noodles and gyoza dumplings. The interior is perfect for bad weather situations because it's warm and cozy, a very romantic place to go on a first date or even a second one (: 

Tomorrow I'm going to H&M 25 YEARS , so don't forget to keep up with my stories and my next post 


N O K I A  8 • Antwerp

Yeah, I have an Iphone like 70% of the Belgian youth. But Nokia was one of my first phones.. and it lasted forever.. I guess that little bastard is still working.

I hate games but I genuinely like SNAKE. Why? Because I guess it's more then a game, it's like a therapy to focus and mededate on the important points in life. Wrestle a way to your goal until you can reach it. You could fail, but luckily the game gives u a new change everytime, like life should be. The new NOKIA 8 .. (in stores on the 6 september) mainly focuses on his new camera. The dual-sight camera or BOTHIE. Which let u capture moments through dubbel vision. (Selfie and eye perspective). Probably you are thinking why would I need that? Real moments is the answer, it's made for capturing expressions on both sides, and memories that would last a life time. Besides this feature he also records amazing 360 sounds! So if you're looking for a android phone with something extra, give the NOKIA 8 a try!

 - there are no pictures here of the NOKIA 8, because a phone is a phone. But it's also your second friend. And u don't judge second friends on their looks

Thanks to Nightingale, for the invite

BARCELONA • PLAYA DARO

Summer beach vibes (wearing MANGO pantalon and shirt - https://shop.mango.com/eu)

Een traditie, of een gewoonte. Al sinds ik klein was trokken we met de tent,kamper en uiteindelijk een caravan rond in Duitsland, Frankrijk en Spanje. Ik ben er mee opgegroeid. Spanje is een deel van mijn leven zonder veel mensen het beseffen van me. De zee is mijn tweede huis, eveneens als de zon. Strand, wijn en een sigaret. Het leven, meer moet je niet hebben. 

Zelfportretten. Een heling. Vroeger maakte ik om de twee weken zelfportretten, niet enkel en alleen om mijn evolutie vast te leggen maar eveneens om mijn emoties kwijt te kunnen spelen. Na een lange tijd ben ik terug in het water gesprongen, het was niet gemakkelijk maar mijn alter ego is back! So If you wanna see more stuff like this, let me know (:  

Selfportrait on Hill, Platja D'aro  (goo.gl/P9X3FA)

Barcelona, een stad die me altijd zal bij blijven als één van de eerste groot steden die ik ooit heb bezocht. Ik was opslag verliefd. Het leven van de Spanjaarden , het gemak. Strand en stad , een perfecte onmisbare combinatie. Ik citeerde tijdens een wandeling in onbekendere straatjes dat je hier te minste een echt terrasje kan doen, de echte definitie. In België zou je letterlijk op een stuk terras zitten. Hier is een terras een deel van het stad , een blending. Een levensvibe.
