Carnival Time in Belgium

 We have all heard of Carnival in Rio and in Venice but these are not the only cities who celebrate at this time of year. Many other towns and cities across the world go a little crazy during the carnival season too. Many have colorful parades with fantastic costumes and elaborately decorated floats and wagons. During the dark days of winter it is a great opportunity for people to literally let their hair down and join in the festivities. Carnival is celebrated each year in Belgium too,... continue reading

Probably the world's strangest border!!

 Ever seen those famous pictures of a nice café lying just right to the Belgian-Dutch border, noted by a row of crosses? Well this place is no hoax and is located in the Dutch province of North Brabant but is a bit more complicated than simply the "Dutch-Belgian border".So inside the Netherlands there are a few pieces of land that are actually Belgium (exclaves). Most of them are located some 5km from the Belgian border but a few are further inside. They belong to the Belgian Baarle-Hertog... continue reading

Niels Albert won the title eventually.However, I'd like to show you some of my pics of this race, which brings my total approved photos on 150. More pics of this... continue reading

Newbie from Belgium

A lot of pictures uploaded and almost every picture was refused. But now the first three are online. It's a start. My pictures were refused because they were too artistic and not ok for this site for selling. So I will have to think a little different. Let's hope for a good start.Thanks for reading continue reading

Where to find models (focus on Belgium)

There are several ways to find models. Relatives and friends might be easy to access, but they are not necessarily good models. Another possibility is to use special web sites where models and photographers find each other. Make-up artists can be found the same way.Quite often the same model can be found on different sites at the same time. Sites provide different options and different communication channels to the users.Probably the most popular in Belgium is http://modellennet.be. Currently... continue reading

Winter photo

Unusually for Belgium we've got real winter this year - it was lot's of snow and freezing all week in the beginning of the year. It was a nice sunny day when I went out to make a few pictures.It was -10 centigrade and I didn't have any issues with the camera at that temperature. However fully charged batteries died extremely quickly - it was showing "battery low" after about 15 minutes of use. Fortunately I have a good habit of always having several charged batteries with me. By the way Canon compatible... continue reading
