Hello, I am Tom!

Meet the man behind the lens of Avi8Art

"As an aviation enthusiast and passionate photographer, I have dedicated myself to capturing the essence of people and the beauty of aircraft"

I was born and raised in the picturesque city of Bruges, Belgium, where my love for aviation and photography took flight. As an aviation enthusiast and passionate photographer, I have dedicated myself to capturing the essence of people and the beauty of aircraft, bringing the aviation community to life through my captivating images.

Being rooted in Bruges has provided me with a unique perspective and a deep appreciation for the wonders of this historic city. Its charming streets and rich cultural heritage have influenced my artistic vision and shaped my passion for visual storytelling.

In addition to my photography pursuits, I am proud to be the husband of Isabelle and the loving father of Ona and Millie. They are my constant inspiration, reminding me of the importance of cherishing the moments we capture through our lenses.

With a background in graphic design, I’ve honed my skills as a visual storyteller, drawing upon the beauty and aesthetics of my beloved Bruges. My professional journey started as a layouter at Roularta Media Group, and today, I work as a graphic designer at the Communications Department of the City of Bruges. This unique blend of experiences allows me to infuse my photography with a distinct sense of artistry and a deep connection to my hometown.

As a freelance photographer and reporter, I’ve had the privilege of bringing aviation news to life through engaging articles and visually striking photographs. My work has been featured in esteemed publications, capturing the spirit and excitement that fuels the aviation community.

Combining my passion for aviation, my photography skills, and my graphic design expertise, I strive to create visually stunning images that truly capture the spirit of flight. Each photograph I create is a testament to the beauty and artistry of aviation, as well as a reflection of my personal dedication to my craft.

For me, photography is not just about capturing a moment; it’s about creating a tangible connection to memories and emotions. Holding a freshly printed photograph or turning the pages of a beautifully designed book is a sensory experience that I cherish. It’s an invitation to relive those special moments and be transported back to the wonders of aviation.

I invite you to join me on this journey, where we can celebrate the wonders of aviation together. Let’s connect and explore the possibilities of capturing your unique aviation story through the lens of my Avi8Art.

I look forward to meeting you and collaborating on timeless masterpieces that showcase your passion for flight. Together, let’s preserve the magic of aviation and create art that will inspire and captivate for generations to come.
