For this photo session, we descended to TODI. That is a freshwater basin with more than 5000 tropical freshwater fish in Belgian Limburg. The water temperature is between 23 and 25 degrees. That makes it a little more bearable for a model than in open water. Carina is an experienced model and you can immediately see that in the poses she conjures up underwater. This picture reminds me very much of the famous sculpture "the thinker" by Rodin.

Welcome to my photography page. In 1992 I was infected with the diving virus. After a few years I wanted to share all the beautiful things I saw with others. I started taking pictures and soon making pictures became a true passion. In 2000 I started participating in photography competitions. By now I have won many prizes at home and abroad. My photographs are memories of fantastic and spectacular experiences, but also moments of patience and frustration. It has become a natural urge to surround myself in the most beautiful but sometimes the most inhospitable environment on earth. Looking for an enchanting world, a place where I can come to rest. One flash, one fraction of a second is all I need to capture my imagination in a feeling that can touch people.
