I’m Maarten, photographer

I am (Belgium, °1983) a professional fine art photographer born and bred in Roeselare. Once an altar boy, later a chain smoker, I eventually understood that photography was my true calling. I encountered the hobby of my life, and managed to get paid for it to boot. Since that day I haven’t ceased to focus on all things spontaneous. I want to observe, rather than direct. My work in my hometown oozes with the spirit of the city, while avoiding the cliché.

Roeselare remains my basecamp from where I aim my typical gaze upon Belgium and the world.
I’m a big black-and-white afficionado, with a soft spot for colour. Always retaining my personal approach, I’m as passionate about my “wedding journalism” as my free work. I’m a starfucker with a self-timer, who got married without taking a selfie.

You can always encounter me at the right moment at the right spot. Hence my crede: capturing coincidence is no coincidence.
