Most of Dirk Bogaerts’ professional photography assignments concern lifestyle and motorsport photography (race track & oldtimer). As such he is often an accredited photographer at the most spectacular motorsport competitions around the world to supply photos for championships, teams, specialised magazines and the sports section of newspapers.
He started photography in 1989 while studying to be a master in mechatronical engineering and has ever since been passionate about the art of photography.At the age of 18, Dirk Bogaerts (°1971) fell particularly in love with the magnificent Ardenne Bleue region in Belgium, the region of wild, remote nature and of the beautiful Spa Francorchamps racetrack. Consequently, in 2012 he moved from Leuven to Rahier, a small authentic village in this region, to fully live his passion for motorsport photography. More recently — due to his love for photographing vintage cars and spirit distilleries — Dirk has wandered into industrial heritage photography.
He calls himself a World Photographer for his interest in a wide range of photographic subjects. He is passionate about motorsport, people, nature, travel, technology & books. To showcase his work, Dirk has created Carburettor Magazine. Free online editions — covering motorsport, travel, spirits, vintage cars, photography and more — can be viewed and downloaded from www.carburettormagazine.com!
