This is me.
Let me introduce myself. I am Ann Barrois, based in Antwerp, Belgium.
I am a photographer shooting in a lot of different categories.
Around 2013 I had my first experience with a dslr camera. My father brought me to Spa-Francorchamps where he was racing on a track day. This is where I first held a dslr camera and first fell in love with photography. A friend of my father gave me some tips and tricks and that's where I learned my first bits of photography. Below this text you'll find the results of my first try in (Motorsport) Photography.
Later that year I followed a course photography in High School, where I learned more about the settings of the camera. Unfortunatly I didn't pursue it at the time.
Then at 2015 I went together with my father to my first Formula 1 race in Spa-Francorchamps. My father brought his dslr camera and I tried a bit of shooting. I fell in love with photography all over again, even though the photos were so bad. (You'll find them at the bottom of this page). I really underestimated shooting F1. But again I didn't pursue it.
It wasn't till mid to end 2018 I picked up the dslr of my father again. I watched a couple of YouTube videos, looked up which settings to use when and started shooting. I quickly realised how much I loved and missed photography. Very soon after that I bought my own dslr camera, the Canon EOS 200D. I really was amazed and started shooting everthing I could think of. In October 2019 I went to the TCR500 in Spa-Francorchamps. I quickly realised that especially Motorsport Photography is where my passion lies. Unfortunately Covid happened. Although it was a lot harder shooting on race tracks and events, I didn't let it stop me and started exploring all the other aspects of photography. Got creative in lockdown with some abstract photography and a lot more. Since then I really love exploring all a camera can do and love to take on new challenges and step out of my comfortzone. In June 2021 I moved from my hometown in The Netherlands to Antwerp, Belgium. Here I soon explored a bit of street photography, which is found in my portfolio.
Enough now about me, feel free to check out my wide ranged portfolio and enjoy!
