Oostduinkerke

Well, apparently it’s been more than a year since I posted something on this website. My sincerest apologies for that… for those who still visit this page, because I’m conscious I will have lost a lot of followers. Photography is still a complementary business for me. And life is just to busy (yes, I know, it’s a lame excuse) to keep up with some of the photography stuff I used…

Texel:  Paal 15

Texel: Paal 15

Yup, went to Texel again. On one particular evening I estimated it was worthwhile to go out for some sunset photography. I was not counting on the sun being visible, but I gambled on some nice clouds and light. When I arrived, I noticed a big downpour in front of me. But I got rewarded, because clouds shattered and the rain literally went left and right from me. I was actually focusing on…

Texel: Marsdiep

Texel: Marsdiep

A new Texel countdown has started 🙂 I found these two photos will cleaning out the archives. They are taken from the ferry on het Marsdiep, a deep tide-race between Den Helder and the island of Texel. Only 5 minutes in between the first and second image…

Zeeland

Zeeland

On 25/2 we went for a day trip to Zeeland (NL), organised by Landschap vzw. Main goal was to spot birds and seals, but since I’m not a wildlife photographer I went for the typical landscape, which is dominated by water. Stops were planned at Wemeldinge (a popular diving place at the Eastern Scheldt), Wolphaartsdijk, Schelphoek, Plompetoren and Brouwersdam. Weather and light circumstances were not great, but we made the most…

Belgian coast: back to the roots

Belgian coast: back to the roots

Sunday 20/11 I had a booking for a lifestyle newborn shoot* in Dunkerque (FR). Coincidentally, weather forecasts predicted quite stormy conditions. So I decided to leave early and have a look around at the seaside. Not so much to experience nature in full force, but I wanted to see if I could make some images of those rather deserted and grim Belgian coastal villages during bad weather. I decided to stop in…

Texel: waves

Texel: waves

After working on classic seascapes, long exposures and intentional camera movement images, I’ve been trying to find some new angles for my seascape photography. Of course, in these days everything has already been photographed. But you still need some challenges to keep going on. I’ve been strolling around on internet for inspiration and I got attracted to wave art photography. Took a first try at it at one of my…

Iceland 2016 – a winter flirt

Iceland 2016 – a winter flirt

It’s finally here, the photo report on the short winter trip I did to Iceland in february. I turned it into a slideshow, supported by some nice ambient music (courtesy of Paul Minesweeper). Enjoy the cold winterscapes and icy roads of a warm country. Visited locations include Thingvellir National Park, Gulfoss, Geysir, Seljalandsfoss, Skógafoss, the deserted DC-3 airplane on the black sand beaches of the south coast, Vìk, Reynisfjara, Dyrhólaey……

A sky full of stars

A sky full of stars

Yes, we’ve been to Texel… again. And it won’t be the last time this year either, because I have a wedding to shoot on the Dutch Wadden Sea island in May. I met with them for a small family session with their newly born daughter (results of that may appear later on www.stevengoovaerts.be). Besides that I went out for a sunset session at the beach and a night trip to…

Teaser: Vík, Iceland

Yup, it’s not the North Sea, it’s the North Atlantic. But I’m guessing you won’t mind. The final week of February we had the chance to go for a short winter discovery trip in magnificent Iceland. I will save the report for later, when my final selection is ready and processed. And yes, we have pictures of Aurora Borealis. But I can’t resist posting a small teaser (attentive readers might have already…

A while ago I sent in some photos for the contest “Perception of the four seasons on the isle of Texel.” The winners would be published in Texel Magazine, a glossy magazine with stories, interviews and reports on Texel and their locals. I am happy to report that one of my pictures was selected!
