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.
In his personal work he is looking at food in a different way, trying to capture it more aesthetic,
he developed a signature style that you can describe as conceptual, painterly, timeless images with floating objects that sometimes have a somewhat surreal
He often uses a very graphic approach & likes to work in square formats, in which the composition & styling are very minimalistic, with the use of an unsaturated monochromatic color palette.
His personal work is been awarded in various International photo contest, including
1st place in The London ‘Pink Lady Food Photographer Of The Year 2017’ category‘Cream Off The Crop’ with his picture `Smoked Mackerel.
