The whole point of taking pictures is so that you don't have to explain things with words.
— Elliot Erwitt


Kasper was born sometime after the Middle Ages, in Bruges, Belgium. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know the phrase “Bruges is a sh*thole”. But let’s not exaggerate. It’s actually quite pretty here. The Belgian beer helps too. As you might have guessed, Kasper likes movies. He is constantly intrigued by the way light is used to set mood to a scene. It’s a great source of inspiration.

So when Kasper’s not busy writing about himself in the third person, he likes to take pictures. Preferably of people, both documentary and portraits. If there’s an opportunity to create something unique or surreal, even better! He’s not satisfied until everything is exactly where it should be in the frame. That’s his perfectionism talking. It’s also what makes him learn so fast: the constant drive to self-improve. You’ll notice his focus when you’re working with him.

It’s kind of funny, actually. Kasper bought his first big-boy camera to snap landscapes. However, he soon noticed there are already enough pretty sunset pictures in the world. So as he progressed, he developed an appreciation for the human aspect in photography. It’s not just the technical side anymore, but also the emotional side that is thrown into the mix. It’s what makes photographing so fulfilling.
