Photography has been a love of mine for a long time; in fact I have been passionate about photography and images since I was a small child.

I feel a deep emotion looking at photos and consider emotion as the key factor when it comes to creating images. In all cases, whether I’m looking at a portrait, a landscape or an everyday situation, the image needs to convey meaning, be suggestive and to raise questions within me. My goal is to convey these feelings through my own work.

I could rattle off a list of photographic milestones dating back to my childhood, but I consider 2005 to be the beginning of my photographic life. This was the year I decided to start devoting myself to photography, started publishing compositionally striking images on the internet and participating in photography forums.
During this time I whet my appetite for photography by following the work of exceptional photographers such as, Andrej Dragan and his amazing photo editing and post-production work, the renowned travel photographer Martin Parr – famed for his innovative imagery and approach to social documentary, as well as Peter Beard (no relation), famous for his astonishing photographs of Africa.

Whether I have the honour of photographing a wedding or a majestic landscape, my goal is to create artistic images that will be keepsakes for year to come.

If you’re looking for a photographer to capture beautiful images, you’ve come to the right place!
Fred Beard was born in 1978 and lives in Brussels, Belgium.

In French :
Passionné par l’image depuis mon plus jeune âge, je ressens une profonde émotion en regardant des photos qui me parlent. L’émotion doit rester le maitre mot d’une image. Que soit un portrait, un paysage ou une scène de vie, il faut qu’elle me parle, m’interpelle, me fasse réfléchir. C’est ce que je cherche à véhiculer au travers de mon travail.

Je suis né en 1978 et vit en Belgique à Bruxelles.

La photographie s’est emparée de moi en 2005. J’ai progressivement publié mon travail sur internet, participé à divers forum de critique et aiguisé mon œil en parcourant le travail de photographes d’exception comme le belge Stephan Vanfleteren (pour son style fort, engagé et ses magnifiques portraits), le polonais Andrej Dragan (qui a su imposer son traitement de l’image très particulier), le britannique Martin Parr (pour son approche innovante du documentaire) et l’américain Peter Beard (pour ses clichés sur l’Afrique).

Mes services s’étendent des portraits au reportage de voyage en passant par le reportage de mariage et l’événement/corporate.
