Hey, my name is Christophe Staelens. I live in Belgium, near Ghent.
I'm often by the sea, it's my wife’s birthplace.
I always make time to go out and take pictures, sometimes i cross the border.
There are some great objects for minimal photography along the French coastline.
I started taking photo’s a year or 6 ago, a friend advised me a dslr over a compact camera.
It didn’t take me long to experiment with nd filters and long exposures, because i love the
silky water effect, the movement of the clouds, the capture of time in one single frame…
Lately, i discovered some different aspects of photography, street and architecture.
But no matter where i am, shooting landscapes, people or buildings, unintionally i capture
things as minimal as possible.
