‘miljoenenweek’ in ‘Huizenjagers’, so the sky is the limit for the brokers. Those who go looking for exclusive properties for, among others, interieurgoeroe Pieter Porters and showbizzfotograaf Henk Cauwenbergh. Who currently lives with his wife Els in a beautiful house in Zeebrugge, but is looking for a big house with a studio and exhibition space. Its budget: one million euro. “A lot of fun to see other people in the market to scour in search of our droompand”, says Henk. “Though it was surprising to see how some brokers it is completely not understood, and others did.” (laughs)
You have as a photographer or specific requirements, eh?
Correct. The property must be a separate private area with garden, and a separate professional section. With a large open space with high ceilings and plenty of natural light, on the ground floor. There are often large objects in my photography studio inside: horses, cars... On a floor that is not.
do You want 1 million euro for bought copies. That's not little.
Well, for such buildings, you quickly reach 800,000 euros and counting there is still renovation or refurbishment, and you come out at a million.
You deserve so good you living as a photographer.
I hope that there are enough jobs coming in the next few months. I think we are in Belgium, with only four photographers are on a certain level very well, our bread to earn. I'm four years as an assistant of Peter Lindbergh, the iconic photographer who always said that I, as one of the few his style approach. Then you'll get soon the chance to for a foreign clientele to work on bigger budgets. My big art pictures do well in French galleries. I am also more than 22 years, the regular photographer of Charles Aznavour. And via Chico from The Gypsy Kings, I'm of jobs affected in Monaco.
There you are in the beau monde.
I've made pictures for princess Caroline, and prince Albert also has work of me. Several times I have private photos of the family Grimaldi. Just like the football team of Monaco.
