Mike Steegmans is a professional photographer with over 20 years of experience.
Specialized in Portraits, Model shoots, Action Sports and Travel.
After studies in film school in Brussels, his focus started to shift towards photography. Things started rolling after magazines and companies bought his snowboarding pictures. At that point, travelling and shooting photos became a full-time job.
Early 2004 a major Belgian magazine asked to shoot a swimsuit special in a ski resort. This proved to be his launch pad for model and fashion shooting.
From his movies background Mike kept the idea and feeling that a picture needs to be more than a pretty postcard; it needs soul, a story of some kind.
