I’m a 29 y.o. Belgian-born self-taught full time travel/adventure photographer and I like to call myself a world explorer with a passion for the outdoors and the wilderness. After I graduated in PR in 2013 I left Europe and spent a whole year exploring Australia and showcasing the beauty of the country to my audience, mainly on Instagram.
Things got serious when National Geographic, BuzzFeed, BoredPanda and DailyMail published my photos of Australia in 2014 and that’s when I decided to go full-time as an outdoor photographer.
Late 2014 I moved to New Zealand and settled down in Lake Wanaka for 7 months after a 3-month road trip all around the country. My social presence kept growing while overseas.
I’m now back in Europe with the mission of exploring my own continent and of course, keep traveling around the world and (re)discovering new destinations. I spent my summer of 2016 roadtripping in Canada, Iceland and Norway for 4 consecutive months. After having spent the last 3 months in New Zealand to lead a couple of photo workshops, I will be based in Europe for most of the year 2017, in order to hit the road again in May 2017 when I will start a 5-month roadtrip all across Europe, until October 2017. #PeaksOfEurope
