This is How: ‘When the party is over…’ by Kristof Claeys

‘This is How’ is back…! After some time off, I’m thrilled to be bringing back this regular feature, where our members share exactly how they ‘got the shot’. Kicking off the renaissance today, we have the brilliant Kristof Claeys, telling us exactly how he captured this Reportage Award of his. Kristof was ranked 11th in the World here on TiR for 2020, and 16th in the World over on our sister-site for documentary family photography, This is Reportage: Family. I also had the pleasure of interviewing him on our Podcast.

Kristof really takes us on an in-depth dive into his thought process, equipment used, inspirations and more… a really fantastic read. Thanks so much, Kristof!
