Photography Frederik Van den Broeck | The Photographer English

 

 

 

After I completed my studies, it was obvious that I would become a professional photographer. Since then I have been very happy in taking  commercial pictures for the last 15 years for enterprises and advertising agencies.

Nevertheless I missed more and more often the freedom to show myself in an own way of working. I soon felt that the digital medium was too restricted for this very personal way of expression, both technically and aesthetically.

In 2011 I came across Collodion photography and it was a revelation. The aesthetic properties and the rendering of this noble technique are in strong contrast compared to the modern skills. Thanks to Collodion photography I reinvented the pleasure of taking pictures.
