More about Michel H....

What do you love about your job?

Photography is a great way to capture moments in life. I love the variety in the project I do which keeps me inspired and creative.

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have photographed many wedding and because of my relaxed and candid approach I behave more as a friends who takes photos instead of being the annoying photographer. During the day I have fun with the couples and guests which creates a good time for everybody. This way everyone is relaxed and this results in true emotions which I can capture.

It is a great honour to deliver moments to my clients which they love.

Awards, honors, and recognitions received

I don't have any awards and have not submit any images to be nominated and will never do so. Awards, honors or the like are not important to me. My award is when clients love the work I have created for them.

A fun fact about this photographer

I am a keen hiker, cycle tourer and I love the outdoors. Besides the sporty stuff my partner and I have build our own Tiny House and we spend lots of time gardening the vegetable garden. The tiny house gives us the freedom to travel which we often do too.
