My name is David Sdika

I am a professional photographer in Brussels

I have become a lifestyle portrait photographer to capture what cannot be captured : the ephemeral and the random.
The gestures of everyday life, the smiles, the tears, keeping a record of them before the testimonies of our human condition, of our life have disappeared forever.

As a photographer, but also as an introvert human being, I am driven to be attentive to emotions and people. My photographic work is therefore inseparable from who I am and what I believe in. It mixes contemplation and poetry, often neglected in an over-vitalized world, where never so many images have been produced… before being lost in the cloud.
Giving back its own value to the lived moment, cultivating a kind of craft, a search for authenticity.
I want to photograph more with my heart, less with my head.

I am a portrait photographer

Nothing moves me so much as discovering, years later, the photo of a loved one I have lost sight of. I instantly measure the weight of the years and rejoice in all the moments lived together.

The portrait, if it is sincere, is a window on the person being photographed.
Reading it awakens strong feelings, an accumulation of happy images that go round and round. Like a trigger that refreshes our deepest memory.

As a photographer, I can’t imagine doing anything else than portrait photos.

Children's portraits and family photos

My favourite subject is still childhood. The world of the little ones represents all the innocence that adults have lost.

Making a portrait of a child, is above all putting yourself at his or her level, literally and figuratively. It means returning, for the duration of a session, to the playground of our kindergarten.
When I take a photo of a child, I feel like a kid again.
I especially like to photograph children in their living environment, at home, within their family, in a lifestyle philosophy.

Corporate portrait

For a long time unloved, corporate photography, and LinkedIn headshot in particular, is an exciting challenge for professionals.

Making recruiters want to know more about you, in a few milliseconds, with a portrait photo is a subtle art. The image must represent you faithfully and highlight your temperament.
Showing a sincere portrait on LinkedIn is probably the best way to get started on the professional social network.
