Manuel Hamel Photography

Hello, I'm Manuel

Photographer & traveler

My name is Manuel Hamel, born and raised in a small region of Belgium between Germany and the Netherlands. Growing up in this international environment has pushed me to always give my best to address people in the language they feel most comfortable with. I already learned five languages and plan to add a sixth one to my repertoire in the future. For now, I’m fluent in German, French, Spanish and English and have a solid basis in Dutch.

I have always been passionate about photography! I bought my first reflex in 2009 and loved to take it out for some nice shots. I also combined it with my other passion: traveling. I never miss a chance to take my camera on a trip to immortalise great moments and locations.

In 2012, I decided that it was time for me to take it one step further and started to study photography. Just about a year later, I received my diploma with the note “excellent”!

Since then, I’ve been working on a variety of projects, however both my speciality and passion is People photography in all its aspects, from Portraits, Life- and Street-style to Weddings and other kind of events.

The portfolio on this page includes several snapshots of my work. From artistic to commercial pictures, it presents all sorts of challenges that I love to try.

Enjoy my work…
