#joyfulness, the emotion of great happiness

I haven’t been shooting that many personal projects recently so I thought it was time to do something about that . I was searching for something new (to me), yet not too far what I usually do.

With the #joyfulness series I’m trying to get deeper into the personal space of two people in love. By using a smaller and more intimate environment I hope to capture spontaneous, pure and raw moments of intimacy. An exercise to capture two strangers in love and make the pictures look personal and real.

Gilles & Larissa had a city trip planned in Hotel Bloom! and I was lucky enough to spend some time with them on a lazy sunday morning. Guys, thanks for the trust, the Herbalife tea and for making me feel welcome!

A series wouldn’t be a series if there is no follow-up. So I’m looking for open minded couples with a strong personality and some character that are willing to share their personal story through my lens. Couples living in Belgium or couples travelling to Belgium with a story to tell, do get in touch and maybe we’ll meet soon.


It also was a good time to test drive the new Fujifilm X-PRO2 a bit more. Really happy with IQ & AF. What I like most is how snappy responsive the camera has begon. EVF lag is non existent.

All images shot with the Fujifilm X-PRO2 (80%) and the X-T1 . 3 lenses used: XF16, XF35 & XF56). Natural light only. Check here for the full “what’s in my bag post”.
