2020 has been a strange year, as we all know… But, as you may have noticed: Wolf Sets Fire got a new logo and just now the new website is ready as well! Hope you like it!
I have shot way less concerts than I would have in a normal year. What started quite well with bands like Sum 41, While She Sleeps, H2O, Five Finger Death Punch, Sabaton, Dropkick Murphys and Nathan Gray, came to an abrupt stop in March. All concerts were cancelled or postponed. In September I got to shoot 8 more concerts, in a coronaproof setting. It was nice to shoot again, mainly Belgian bands, after all those months without live music. But then it stopped again with new government measures to stop COVID-19.
I was looking forward to shoot festivals like Rock am Ring (System Of A Down, Volbeat, Greenday, …), Jera On Air, Lokerse Feesten (Dido, …), Sjock Festival (Madness, …), Rock en Seine (Rage Against The Machine), Le Cabaret Vert (Slipknot), and many many concerts.
Let’s hope 2021 will bring more joy and especially more live music!
My big adventure in the Great Bear Rainforest in Canada that was scheduled in October, well it was also cancelled due to Covid-19… I hope my newly scheduled trip will take place in September 2021 and will bring a lot of wildlife and fantastic nature in front of my camera.
I had the chance to photograph the gorgeous kingfisher and I also got some more macro shots.
Our son is a great subject to practice my portrait skills. So I regularly took my camera to capture some great moments in the forest, in the playground and at home.
It is still hard to predict when there will be concerts again, and in which form. I hope to shoot some of the concerts and festivals planned, but at this moment everything is still unclear and plenty of concerts are being postponed to the end of 2021 or even 2022…
As for nature photography, I will try to spend enough time in nature and capturing all of its beauty. I have hide session scheduled to photograph the little owl and will do some more hide sessions to photograph other birds. And I hope to encounter and photograph the magical spirit bear in late September. But maybe the trip will be postponed again, depending on the latest developments regarding Covid-19.
As for the portraits I’d love to take some more creative portraits at work. I’m a currently also preparing a secret portrait project, but can’t tell anything more at this point. But stay tuned 😉
On a personal level, I will be a daddy for the second time in early April. That is the most important event of 2021 and the baby and its ‘big’ brother will definitely get a lot of my time and attention (as well as my wife of course).
