Interview: Photographer Harold Glit (Belgium)
Tell us something about yourself
Although I was born in France, I spent most of my adult life in the USA. I have been living in Brussels for the last three years but am planning to move again next year.
How and when did you get into Photography?
Like all important things in my life, I discovered photography by accident when I was 19 years old and it quickly turned into a great passion which has been with me ever since.
What does photography mean to you?
In addition to being a way to express my creativity, it has also allowed me to meet some great people who I never would have met otherwise.
Please briefly describe your photography style
While I shoot different subjects, photographing women is a big part of my work. Portraits, high-end lingerie and Nudes are my main areas of expertise .Whether I shoot indoors or outside, I only shoot natural light. Actually " natural" is a great word to describe my personal style: I favor natural light, light "natural makeup, natural look (I do not care for tattoos, body modifications, piercings...) I like to think that my images of women are sensual and not " sexy". Lots of people say that my style is rather feminine. To be honest, being a man, this used to bother me a bit. Now , I think I get it :)
Do you decide in advance about what picture you want ?
Well, Yes and No. I usually have some ideas prior to the shoot but I think it is very important to let the model mood and the place take you places you had not planned. I think my best images are those created when both the photographer and the model bring their own creativity and when there is a great complicity between the photographer and the model.
