The stories behind my photographic life in Brussels, at the beach and beyond.

My favourite photo shoot locations in and around Brussels.

I have to admit that Brussels is full of fabulous outdoor spaces, but I also love exploring a little further afield.

My 'go to' location is of course the Abbaye de la Cambre. Its central (just off Ave Louise), sheltered which is vital to avoid bad hair day moments, and full of green space, interesting architecture, and a splash of graffiti for an urban feel. I shoot here through all the seasons for those very reasons......

I love the challenge of the Grand Place too, but it is best avoided during the tourist summer months, and you need to be a 'bright and shine up early kind of guy' to benefit from this one. But its a wonderful place if you want strong visual memories of the heart of Brussels.....

Rue Haute and Rue Blaes also give a flea market feel to your photographs and introduce a cheeky touch to unique photography opportunities.....

Chateau de La Hulpe, is just amazing. it provides wide sweeping dramatic chateau backdrops, gorgeous green spaces, forest areas, waterfront locations, and hidden gems such as the industrial style workshops and the Folon statue backdrops.....

And my latest 'love it' location is the Abbaye de Villers, crumbling medieval ruins that create such a desolute atmosphere, its perfect if you can find the out of season sunny day to create magic there..........

Some Spring floral specials also include Floralia at Groot Bijgaarden, Hallebos and the Royal Greenhouses. Beautiful colour, atmosphere and style guaranteed!

Enjoy!
