Kris Jacobs (1974)
Freedom to experience life, to create, to express myself, to taste and discover and than, use these experiences to grow.
Grow as a person, a partner, a friend, a colleague, a photographer…
My passion for photography has always been there. It took a while before I realized this could be a profession too though. After having studied “Tourism management” and having worked in the tourism industry (travel has always been an important part of my life) for a while, I worked in sales for 10 years. During those years photography remained a creative outlet. Only after I ‘d studied photography at Sint Lucas, Gent in evening school, I decided to follow my heart and take my my lifelong hobby to another level by starting as a professional photographer. Best decision of my life :-).
Having started out as a wide range photographer, shooting just about anything imaginable, I am now discovering my true passions ; food and product photography. The experience gained from shooting such a wide variety of subjects certainly is a plus in my current work. Photography is problem solving, and the more experience, the more luggage one has to tackle these challenges and create the desired images. This way I can help my clients with their visual communication which is vital for any company.
These days I mostly work for publishing companies, magazines, advertising agencies, restaurants, food producers and other companies. Ranging from big companies till small scale producers.
Quality, service and customer satisfaction are key to Kris Jacobs Photography.
