I am a full time commercial and editorial photographer from Belgium who specializes in creative portraits and lifestyle photography. I'm also passionate about sharing knowledge and this page is the place for that.
I aim to capture what makes someone unique in every portrait. In my lifestyle pictures it's all about authentic experiences rather than the fake glamour that is often associated with the genre. Although technical mastery is high on my priority list, my style is often a bit rough around the edges, just like life itself.
Ever since I started my professional career, I've been passionate about sharing information and knowledge with others. Workshops, lectures and speaking engagements bring me all over the world to meet inspiring fellow creatives.
I am proud that my work is recognised by Fujifilm, my favourite camera brand. As an official Fujifilm X-photographer, I feel privileged to do campaigns, workshops and speaking engagements for the brand and work with the engineers to keep improving their products. The support of Fujifilm Belgium also means a lot to me.
The KAGE Collective is an international group of visual story tellers. It's an honour, a pleasure and an inspiration to be part of this amazingly talented group.
I'm a forty-two year old gentle giant who spends most of his spare time being amazed by three beautiful kids, an inspirational girlfriend and the outdoors.
For questions about workshops, you can mail to photographers at bertstephani.com. Unfortunately I don't have time to answer individual photography questions by e-mail. But you can always send your questions in and I'll try to answer the most interesting ones in future blog posts.
