Say hi to 2012
Almost the end of the year… so maybe time for a summary of 2011… What do you think?
Last year was tough, lots of work in my new home but… it’s almost ending so I can finally move and concentrate me on 2012…
It was a year with lots of great photography and met so many new people!
Short resume for 2011:
I was very honored when teams like Nomadesk-Narviflex, Lignier-Versluys, Nodrugs, asked me to make some pics for there publications (2011).
The problem with team shoots is, that they need pictures in the beginning of a new year…
Problem: There are no green and fresh flowers in the field …or light & bright sunlight… only cold temperatures and grey sceneries. (Or we have to go to a sunny Island…)
But everything went well! Afterwards seeing your picture in huge format feels so good!

Kim Saenen portrait
The shoot with Kim Saenen was fun! With her ‘old’ GT Zaskar, in Diest and with Koen Miseur (http://aradilon.wordpress.com/) as assistent!
Photo left: First time that I did lots of Photoshop (cloning, masking and adding new background)… which was only ment as an experiment. (It took me approx. 3 hours of work) TIP: Print your picture to check it on paper
Also big thanks to you all Kim, Koen and Patrick for making time… and afterwards the coffee!
And many other personal work:
As soon there was some sunlight in 2011, I went outside to make some bike pictures.
In ‘The forest of Geel Bel’ I took some shots with the shirts of Nodrugs with the great blue colors.

Also the pics in Ham (Belgium), I like a lot!
DIY underwater case
A few weeks later came the idea with the DIY almost-underwater case. For me, the best picture of 2011 so far.

Nissan Downhill Events
I had also lots of fun at the Nissan Downhill Cups in Belgium! With Loek, asked me to participated in one of my next event shoots and after lots of email traffic, we went to Namur with a full day of fun and action!
Maybe I have to organize a workshop concerning sportsphotography, especially for bike-stuff-pics…

Camview of Loek’s position:
Thanks to all who support me, with positiv and negative comments, with smiles and peptalks, with food and drinks, with gear and mental-support, to believe in me! For next year, I hope to exceeding my expectation in 2012… so stay tuned!
Goals for next year…? Lots!
Let me know your goals… and maybe we can do something together?
