I’m from Belgium and started taking photos about 10 years ago when i bought my first DSLR camera. At first I only took the pictures everyone takes with their phone these days, but after a while I noticed that I prefered taking pictures of people. One day a colleague at work told me about ‘conventions’ and there it all started. 

Not happy about the ‘beautiful’ walls at conventions I started asking people to do shoots at other locations, which led me to go to other countries, starting with France, eventually ending up in countries all around Europe. This eventually changed cosplay for me so that it’s no longer about the pictures, but the social part has become very important too. And the food.. Don’t forget the food..

Next to that i’ve been a gamer for as long as i can remember, starting out on the NES, MegaDrive, moving over to pc later, to end up on console again now as an avid Destiny player since release almost two years ago.
