For a long time I was a full time commercial and editorial Belgian photographer. Right now, I’m on a sort of sabbatical to rediscover photography and my role in it.
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 recognized by Fujifilm, my favorite 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-four year old gentle giant who spends most of his spare time inspired by three beautiful kids 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.
