XXVI International Shooting Days 2019
Comblain la Tour
Our first shooting days were in Sprimont, the second event is in Comblain, not far avway from Sprimont. It's a much more interesting place. The house is great for shootings and the surroundings are nice. We plan to go at least once to this location each year.

Some 200 people registered for the event, but at the end we had less than 10 models present. It's quite difficult to organise an event in such conditions, since you need to evaluate the number of models (to plan for enough photographers and rooms).

XXV International Shooting Days Sprimont
Sprimont and surroundings
We went to Sprimont in 2013; it was a nice location, but the house was not available the next years. So we looked for another house in the same place.

Like all shooting days there are some standard locations where we are sure to get good pictures: the Dolhain sanatorium, the University and Fort de la Chartreuse, but we added some new places: a stone quarry nearby the house and an old railroad station near the border with Germany.

XXIV International Shooting Days Vogelsang
Camp Vogelsang
Ordensburg Vogelsang was built by the Nazis as a training camp for the elite. After the war the camp was used by the Belgian Armed Forces in Germany (a a deterrent to a russian invasion of Europe during the Cold War). The camp was handed over to the Germans at beginning of the XXI century.

Camp Vogelsang (the name used by the Belgian Forces) has hardly changed and we find all the buildings of the Nazi era (except two buildings who were damaged and were not rebuild). The belgian forces added two buildings, the Van Dooren barracks in the same style and the cinema, called "the crypt" because of his underground location.

XXIII International Shooting Days 2018
Thimister (Liège)
The International Shooting days of 2018 were organised in the same house as in 2017. The location was beautifull. The first day we stayed at the house for a fotoshoot at the swimming pool and in the gardens.

The next day we went to an old sanatorium nearby and on saturday we went to the University of Liège (like nearly all years). It was raining on sunday and we stayed at home and used the fitness room as a photostudio.

XXII International Shooting Days Vogelsang 2017
Ordensburg Vogelsang
Ordensburg Vogelsang is a former nazi camp build before WWII, then used by the belgian military until 2005. One of the buildings is transformed in an hotel. The rest of the site was preserved as it was during the war. We stayed there for a week end. There is so much to see that there is no need to leave the camp.

There will be a new International Shooting Days in Vogelsang in 2018 (starting friday 14 september 2018)

Liège and surroundings
17 models during four days is too much for most of the photographers to handle. I had time to work with only five of the models.

We went twice to Liège: the university grounds, Ile Monsin and Fort de la Chartreuse. We went to Vogelsang too. It's such an interesting place that the next International Shooting days (in late summer) will be held there begin august. One of the military building is converted into an hotel.

The first International Shooting Days of 2018 will use the same base camp, the event starts on wednesday 9 of May 2018

XX International Shooting Days Durbuy 2016
Vogelsang (germany) and Liège, resting place Durbuy
One of our best International Shooting Days. The second event of the year takes place end of septembre.

We went to Vogelsang again (information page about the location in dutch and french) and to Liège (Fort de la Chartreuse and Ile Monsin). Since the weather was not so fine on sunday, we stayed in the fort for the whole day.

XIX Shooting Days May 2016
Aachen (Germany)
This is one of the International Shooting Days in Germany. Some years ago, we went to Berlin and Munchen, but the latest Shooting Days all took place in Belgium or France.

One of the most interesting places of the event is the old military camp of Vogelsang. It was build by the nazis before the second world war and then used by the belgian army after the war. It's such an interesting place that we'll go back to the place during the next Shooting Days in september.

Durbuy is a really nice willage with a lot of possibilities for fotoshoots. We rent a big house with swimming pool.

More information concerning the International Shooting Days 2015 in Durbuy is available on the site of Belgium Model Academy, the organisation behind most of the Shooting Days.

Andre Pizaro
Our organisation is a collaborative event and each photographer can organise an event. For this event we went to Paris for a week end (friday till sunday). There were more than 40 people involved and all transportation was by bus. We stayed in an hotel nearby La Défence. Make-Up artists and designers were present.
