jonathanAs a travel journalist, I’ve been passionately flying around the world for over ten years. My pictures and articles were published in travel magazines and newspapers like Goodbye, VAB MagazineBo-Magazine, Spitsnieuws, BBT Online, Grande, Ultimo, Metro, Reishonger and Literaire Toerist. Some of my work also appeared in Gazet van Antwerpen, Het Laatste Nieuws, Le SoirKnack Weekend and De Tijd. I drank tea with the Tuareg in Timbuktu, visited Hemingway’s room in Havana, saw the polar light dance above the Lofoten Islands and got terribly lost in massive cities like Shanghai, Beijing and Delhi.

As from 2014, I started working as a full time independent photographer in and around Antwerp. I work for the City of Antwerp, the University of Antwerp, the Port of Antwerp-Bruges and Zorgnet Icuro (the main network organisation for the Belgian healthcare industry). I’ve also worked with several event agencies and national tourism boards.

In 2018 I started posting travel stories on my blog Trot Op! which has won several Belgian Travel Blog Awards since and is now my main communication channel. I try and keep my travel content humorous, surprising and tongue in cheek. I of course also have an Instagram account where I post my most recent pictures.

I’m quite flexible as a photographer, but I mainly specialise in travel photography, portraits, reportage work and events & congresses.

In a previous life, I graduated from the University of Antwerp as a Master in Strategic Communication, International Relations and Visual Studies. I’ve work as a copywriter for advertising agencies and as a creative writer for radio and television.
