My name is Guy Hautier, photographer based in Halle Belgium, I started with analogue photography long years ago. Due to circumstances, I had to end.
When the first digital cameras were launched on the market, I picked up from where I left. I wanted to know all about digital photography and decided to study it in the real "school of photography COOVI" in Anderlecht. That’s were I harbourded a true love and passion. After seven years of evening courses, I graduated as a photographer with an approved degree.
After having explored the different areas of photography, I noticed that humans always took a centre stage in my work. Because of this it seemed like a logical choice to focus on weddings, portrait, fashion and model photography. I’m also very familiar with company-shootings and reportages.
Meanwhile, my hobby became my profession in which I mainly accept assignments on a freelance base.
In 2015 I was first prize winner of the great COOVI photo contest with my product photo "Bottles Upside Down".
Did I reach my ultimate goal? Certainly not. A quote from Mick Schoonveld describes it perfectly: "My best picture, I still have to make." To be honest, I hope that it will still take a long time before this picture is shot.
Also, I regularly test out new techniques, especially those regaring playing with light.
I also regularly participate in workshops with well-known photographers in the photography world.
