We are Charis, James and Arno, photographers. We all have different artistic talents that compliment each other wich makes us a good team. While using a variety of lenses and shooting from various perspectives we capture the beauty. We work together to get different viewpoints simultaneously. Lichtwaas's work is artistic, journalistic, and modern timeless.
Our shared obsession with photography makes us work together. We are constantly inspired by what we feel in all the beautiful corners of the world.
Charis is a fulltime photographer who spent many years apprenticing with her cameras before she began photographing for other people. She has taken her photography to unexpected artistic levels, her style is often emulated, but what sets her apart is her authenticity, her integrity to never budge from the truth, from what’s real, from who she is, and what she believes in. She absolute treasures the stories of her clients. It’s always so much more than just a photograph, it’s her ability to make you fall in love with yourself, through her eyes, and through her lens.
James became fascinated with photography from an early age while looking at the prints his father made, and began photographing while studying photography in college. When he's not photographing, he works at PIXMIX, a post-production company as color grader, it is the process of altering and enhancing the color of a motion picture or video image. 'Getting it right in camera is one of the most important steps to achieving a great photograph, but color grading is what can really take your work to entirely new level.' He's a pro in color grading.
Photographer and artist Arno De Pooter creates a world without clutter. If it’s a man on the beach or a street corner, he’s always looking for pure settings. His photographs inhabit a certain kind of serenity and calmness that can feel a bit surreal at times.A master graduate in fine arts, the Antwerp-based photographer states: ‘These atmospheres are almost always a reaction to the way my brain perceives this extremely chaotic world. A world in which I feel more like a spectator, surrounded with an abundance of stimuli. It might be the way he would like the see the world, a bit more structured (a bit less overwhelming).’
