Hello.
I’m Ine. A creative. Photographer. Entrepeneur.
Turning vision into images.
All with passion..

I got my first camera when I was 12, and while it wasn't love at first sight, I quickly discovered how interesting it was to stare and watch the world through a lens.
Looking for stories, for faces, for people. The camera turned out the perfect excuse to get a ticket into strange places: A prison. The sewers in Roumania. A compound in Palestina. A school in Iraq. The camera turned out the best passport.

After graduating the Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, I decided that the world is so much bigger than tiny Flanders. I went to Israël with as excuse a post-graduate course, but in reality a license to travel the world further. This travel microbe hasn't left me ever since, and I travel, when possible, preferably on 2 wheels, to discover more cultures.
Thanks to my job, I don't have to choose and some wonderful experiences just came along.

Location: Gent, yet working around the world

In Belgium Ghent is my hometown, and I founded Matuvu : a small boutique company helping people with their visual and online communication.

More than just a photographer

With over 23 years of experience in the field, I am not just a corporate photographer, but I think along with your company and translate your vision into branded images.

As photographer I choose to work for the professional sector, and I have a soft spot for NGO's and organisations/companies trying to make the world a better place.
I pinch my arm every day I get to meet amazing people changing the world in small or rather big ways.

Need a photographer in Ghent or further?

My portfolio boasts an impressive array of clients, including the Prime Minister's Office, VIB, Network for Sustainable Mobility, VDK, Van Lanschot Bank, Showpad, and many more, making me a trusted name in the industry.
