Wesley Dombrecht(1979) is a Belgium-based award winning commercial and artistic food photographer,
his interest in photography and art began at young age beside his passion for food.
He followed his passion and first started with commercial food photography, after a few years he also took the leap towards the artistic side of food photography.
