A little while ago I was asked to photograph a (female) flight-officer of the Belgian Airforce. I like my jets, so a very exciting job, indeed! We met the charming flight-lieutenant on the tarmac, just as she returned from a training flight from France. The Alpha-Jet trainer aircraft was parked in front of what I assumed to be it’s hangar, just beside a wooded patch. Not a very exciting background for what needed to be a movie-like portrait shot… But of course you can’t just move a jet to what you consider to be a ‘nicer location’, so it was all hands on deck in post-production. I decided to remove the trees completely, and insert a nice summer sky photo from my archieves. All in all not too dificult, but quite time-consuming. good fun nonetheless, and with rather pleasing result I thought! On the right you see the final retouches image, next to the RAW-image as it was shot originally. Many thanks again to flight-lieutenant Karen Vandenbroucke and the helpful staff of the Belgian Army press division.
Recently I shot a series of personal projects. It had been a while since I did some fashion-like work (which I love doing), so we ended up doing just that. Setting up a production team, getting some models together, finding a nice setting – all good fun, and with pleasing results.

I’ ve been shooting some new personal work again. This time we shot a fashion story with a bit of a ‘Blue Velvet’ feel to it. I also made a short video during the shoot! Check it out. Hope you enjoy it! Photographer/Director: Thomas Vanhaute Model: Isabelle P @ Dominique Models Styling: Julie D Hooge Hair & Make-up: An Graré Music: © Rolling Stones/Virgin Music
For Belgacom, I shot a series (a few hundred, actually) of portraits of the families that feature in the new Belgacom ad-series, Clans. I made a little composition of a few of those portraits. Client: Belgacom Agency: VVL/BBDO Production: Who Killed Joe?

For Belgian food-industry multinational PURATOS we recently shot this campaign-image. Luckily we were in time to shoot those gorgeous wheatfields, before they were harvested days just later… Perfect timing! Client: PURATOS Photographer; Thomas Vanhaute Production: Who Killed Joe?
