Biography

Father - Photographer - Dreamer - Engineer - Pizza lover - Springsteen fan - Book reader - Chest hair owner - Traveller

My name is Ben, a self-taught freelance landscape photographer living in Belgium. My interest in photography exploded in 2016, when the age counter was already indicating 45. One could say I was a reasonable late bloomer. But you are never too old to chase your dreams.

 

After trying out multiple photography genres, including portraiture and artistic nude photography, I became excited about landscape photography. Since then, I started to dedicate my skills to capturing the beauty of landscapes and nature through my lens.

 

I am rooted in an immense passion for the great outdoors, and I am fueled by discovering new places. I have been fortunate enough to visit fantastic locations and be part of their wonders. Every time the rivers start to sing, or the mountains ask me to dance, when a mystic forest wants to play hide and seek or the waves invite me for a cup of coffee on the beach, something unexplainable happens to me, something that goes beyond words. This feeling I can only reveal by creating ethereal images that evoke peaceful solitude and portray the beauty of matching one’s heartbeat with the pulse of nature.

 

I combine my photography passion with a professional engineering job. Both worlds fascinate me. As a result, industrial or architectural elements are regularly included in my landscape photography.

 

 

Thank you for following my journey here.
