Born at Ieper,
I first worked with the Canon Xl1s with 16x manual zoom lens...
Then I bought the Canon XHA1 + Letus Extreme and Nikon primes to put that shallow depth of field in my images.
And at the moment I'm working with the famous Canon 5d Mark II + other gear that helps to deliver professional "film"!
A few years ago (2, I think), I entered the 1minute awards. There were 160 short-movies and I ended up on 5th place.
My big example is Mr. Steven Dempsey and Philip Bloom. Really magnificent work they do, really amazing shots they make!
