Westtalent ’09, preselections

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

For people who are wondering what I was doing the last month, well, I was touring through West Flanders in a red VW van. I have the pleasure of being the in-house photographer of Westtalent ’09, a provincial music contest that gives a platform to young local talents. On each Friday and Saturday, there was […]

pycpuid 0.2

Thursday, October 1st, 2009

It’s been more than two years since I’ve released the first version of my pycpuid module for Python. I haven’t been using it since, but as some people do, I decided to upgrade it a little. The result is It’s still an unfinished work (I would like to add some more of the high […]

Hindenburg @ De Beloften

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

Just like last year, I was at the rock contest De Beloften to give my mental support to a befriended band. Last year that band was Lixi, this time it was my pals of Hindenburg. And just like last year, being imported from West Flanders turned out to be a disadvantage: neither Hindenburg or Outskirts […]

Shearwater + Krakow @ Vooruit

Sunday, September 13th, 2009

Last Thursday, I was at Vooruit to photograph Shearwater, an indie rock formation from Texas. Clever songs made from fragile musings to sheer explosions of rock, and with plenty of musical experimentations, including a bowed glockenspiel. I hadn’t heard of the band before, but they’ve definitely earned a place on my play list. Support act […]

Parkpop Oostkamp, 23 August 2009

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking pictures at a local festival in Oostkamp: Parkpop. A hot summer day, great crowd, lots of them anyway, perfect lighting with sufficient front light (cheers Geerolf ;), plenty of beer, and of course some great gigs! The shows of Hadise and Les Truttes were the most […]

splashing water drops

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Earlier this month, on a warm lazy Saturday, I was sitting idle in the flowery garden. Tired of reading books, I decided to setup a little studio under the walnut tree and shoot some water drops. The idea is very simple: hang a bag of water above a filled basin, and make a tiny hole […]

Canon EOS 50D – Trip to Normandy

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

Over a month ago, I’ve bought myself a new camera body for my birthday: a Canon EOS 50D. Though my previous one, an EOS 400D, is still functional, after two years, I was outgrowing its limits somewhat. The new one really is an upgrade. It’s bigger and as such more comfortable to hold. The larger […]

The Next Big Thing III @ Cactusclub

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

The Next Big Thing, Keremos‘ showcase of talented young bands, is touring through Flanders and last Friday they’ve ended up at the Cactusclub @ MaZ. As this venue is virtually next door to me, I went to shoot some pictures for Indiestyle. Only three bands this time: Roadburg, The Galacticos and Steak Number Eight as […]

Arsenal @ Vooruit, 28 March 2009

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Last week, I was at Vooruit in Ghent to shoot Arsenal for Indiestyle. Only one little spark was necessary to set fire to the sold out venue, keeping outside the cold rainy night. And quite a party it was with hits like Estupendo, Lotuk, Saudade and A Volta. Arsenal had invited several guests who colaborated […]

The Sedan Vault & Madensuyu @ Cactus

Tuesday, March 17th, 2009

Last Sunday night, I was at the Cactus Club @ MaZ to shoot The Sedan Vault and Madensuyu for Neither band I’ve heard of before, except for Madensuyu’s appearance on LUX, but I was pleasantly surprised. Every fragment that was able to enter my consciousness I fully enjoyed. Pure explosions of clever experimental Belgian […]
