The power of black & white photography


As a photographer, I'm a sucker for the contrast in black and white portraits. Aiming to get that little twinkle in the eye, to let the subject really pop out. Read how I did this.

Photography is an art

It’s about finding extra-ordinary

In an ordinary place

I don’t know who quoted the statement above, but I couldn’t agree more.

Do you believe me when I tell you that I took this picture in a small office with my portable studio gear? By using the right lighting and putting up some dark curtains to darken up the room.

One Day

It took only a few hours to build the setting and take the photos we needed.

Before the big day, we create a personal mood board for the client. We do this to make sure our creative minds live up to the ideas and image the client wants to show to his clients. This saves us time on the day of the shoot. After all, we both know what the desired end result will look like.

Roel will use these pictures for his website, LinkedIn and other social mediums.
