My Bio
THIS IS ME...

Although photography only really became the passion of my life later on, I was always creative with images.
When I was 15 I learned screenprinting and I was developing images in the dark room. Sometimes these were photos, sometimes negatives or just printing plates.
I followed a graphic education at the VIGK in Bruges and later on i worked in several large printing companies, both press and prepress.
When later in 2013, as a hobby photographer, I submitted a photo to a photography platform, it became clear that I had a lot more eye for the art form than I thought myself.
Shortly afterwards I was presented with the photo in SHOOT magazine. So I bought myself a new camera and became very passionate.

After an inspiring trip to Israel, I decided to go for a master's degree program, so I could learn all aspects in photography.
A year later, in 2015 and on the advice of my mentor, I brought smartiepix online, in order to have my own platform to challenge myself within the training.
This resulted in more creativity in my pictures and half a year later I installed a photo studio. The photographer in me was really born now!
Now almost 3 years in I became more serious and professional in my work, what has lead me to work for clients too.
I'm an allround photographer, I do portraits, events, scenery and landscapes.
I do like manipulated photography and some of my works are related to that section.
So I hope you will follow me up here a bit. I support also every other artist, because art is in everything and everyone!

Peace and love with a slice of darkness!

Although I had some doubts first to participate on DA, I have to admit that it is nice to hang around here so now and then. Sharing my own work and that of others is a special thing. It is fun, finally meeting some new people where I can share some thoughts and art with. I'm still checking out some things here, like in which groups I have to join or where I should submit my works. Everyone is welcome here and if you think I should come to your page, do not hesitate to ask, even for Llama. It's a nice way of viewing things. Greetz, Marino aka smartiepix
