Polaroid photo booth: The broken circle breakdown

result_photo

Sunday night the Belgian film, The broken circle breakdown, was nominated and in running to receive an oscar. In Ghent the film festival of ghent organised a party in the Sandton Grand hotel Reylof to watch the award ceremony live on a big screen with the cast, Prince Laurent of Belgium and some more VIPS.

They’ve asked “In a moment”, the photo booth collective of me and my colleague Stijn Vandenbussche to setup a polaroid photo booth at the event. Stijn could not make it because he is currently enjoying carnival in Rio, so I asked my former intern Ilja to help me out. We set up the studio and shot polaroids during the whole evening. Below you can find some impressions of the evening and in this video which aired on cafe corsari, a belgian national television program, you can see me at work around the 2min45sec mark.

Florida grapefruit at Wasbar

Florida pompelmoes evenement in Wasbar Gent

Monday I was asked to shoot the smoothie workshop of Florida grapefruit in the Wasbar in Ghent.

It felt a bit like summer in the wasbar, with the smoothies made by Bart of Bartenders on the road. One of the perks of being the photographer, you get to taste everything.

Lunch beat: Party during your lunch

"Event photography: lunch beat with dj vineyard

Yesterday, Sara saw a tweet from @BartVandeVel, who needed a very last minute photographer for event photography during Lunch beat. I quickly responded and that’s how I ended up in Hotel Thon 2 hours later.

Event photography: lunch beat

Lunch beat is a party with a DJ, food and non-alcoholic beverages during 1 hour over lunchtime in a fancy location. About 150-200 people went completely crazy and had loads of fun yesterday. It was great fun to watch and photograph.

Some of my photos also got published in some Belgian newspapers like HLN.be, La Dernière Heure and Le Soir.

[PitsLamp-short] Fail conference

Jan Verheyen on the fail conference

Today and the next 2 days I’m shooting for my client iMinds at the Creative media days.

Today one of the several conferences was the Fail conference where one of the speakers was Jan Verheyen.

It was one of the better conferences, I attended/photographed. Great speakers, very interesting content and awesome ideas. The best speaker for me was Filip Maertens with this quote: “Don’t let your fear of failure strip you from your passions”

If you are attending one of the following days, come and say hi.
