Ann Vallé Brussels advertising photographers

Combining her studies at the Antwerp Academy of Arts with her first professional photography work for a magazine and a Belgian fashion house, Ann Vallé graduated in 2000 with a Master's Degree in Photography.

Over the next few years she continued building her career in fashion and advertising photography, shooting for fashion magazines home and abroad, lookbooks and catalogues. In the meantime, she sharpened the focus on what she wanted her pictures to become: emotional and sincere, shot in an intuitive, impulsive way and in an inspiring atmosphere.

Ann loves the action and spontaneity associated with reportage-style shoots as well as the happy occasions when all the elements of her vision fall together, creating a work of art and a style uniquely her own.

Lisa Carletta Brussels fashion photographers

Passionate young Belgian photographer Lisa Carletta began her career in 2007. Through her photographs she presents characters that bring their environment to life, creating a narrative, a family, a universe, a past and a present for each of her subjects.

Lisa favours a meticulous approach to detail so as to let her characters exist as fully as possible. She is often inspired by her childhood heroes, submerging them into ironic and nostalgic worlds to present them in a completely different light. Her work is tinted with just a little darkness, humour and bad taste.

Lisa won the Weekend Photo Award in October 2008 with her 'Lost Doll' series. Visit her website for more information.
