So the Belgian championships in dressage are over, and I am still processing the thousands (litteraly) of photographs. But here’s one of a pirouette I want to share.

I am spending more time on Instagram these days, it is just so much faster and easier to post a picture there. Follow me @point__of__view__photography

If you look closely, you can also see my new logo in the left corner ­čÖé



Bijloke Site

So Ghent has a lot of historical (and gorgeous) places, and in some of those places you can see new and modern elements, while still conserving the historical buildings. The Bijloke-site is one of those places. Take the journey with me from the middle ages to┬áthe twentyfirst century with these pictures. And let’s just pretend it wasn’t raining that day ;-).


P.S.: I’ve made a non-horsey post so now I feel free to have the next 10 posts very horse-related.

Another western story

So after seeing a lot of dressage shows, it was time for a little change. Still horse related, but very different.

Since a few days I have an instagram account. You can find me by the name povp.amd

Western Style

So for these pictures… I went Western. In contrast to dressage, there is far more color in this branch of the horse sports. With a little help from Lightroom, I made the colors pop.

I am really trying to specialize┬áin portrait photography, and these fit right into the theme I’ve creating: showing the bond between rider and horse.

No worries; I will post other things too!

Back in the saddle

So I am back in the saddle. By which I mean… taking pictures of people in the saddle. And again, I am proud enough of some of the pictures to post them here.

Two different riders, two different horses, but one thing in common; the love they share for their horse. And as usual, I am not moved by the riding pictures, how stunning theses horses may be. It’s the pictures I take after their ride I love the most. I don’t even want to put my logo on them, it would just spoil it.

Comments are welcomed! Please forgive me for the lighting problems I’ve had in the first shoot.
