Belgium Bound

Very excited to be heading off on a 3-day shoot to Antwerp at the end of this week as I loved visiting it as part of my Rough Guides book commission last year to traverse the whole of Belgium. So, as a warm up to the trip I sifted through some of the images I shot last year to share on my blog.

Below, is the wonderful Rubenshuis in Antwerp

After navigating various train changes, the last being only once every 3hrs, and a 2.5km march along country lanes it was completely worth it to finally arrive at the very opulent Chateaux Attre, with its fading hand printed wall papers, and dark richly oil-painted portraits.

A relatively short distance away was the wonderfully laid out Zoo Pairi Daiza, Cambron, Brugelette. Fell in love with the giraffes…

THIS WEEK…

Looking forward to my assignment in Antwerp hoping the autumn sun will shine to bring out the best of what the city offers – Art, local food, Cityscapes, interiors and their details.

A world of interiors

As the Travel bug is still getting to me I reflect on aspect I have enjoyed doing past travel book commissions, especially Thames & Hudson Style City Europe book where I shot the Lisbon Chapter, and beautiful Paris for Rough Guides. With these two books I got to show how I enjoy to shoot interiors as much as capturing a sense of a location at street level too. Both books gave me the opportunities to shoot in top rated venues. Here below are some of my images from these publications.
