“Photography is more than just using your camera…”

Sharing the passion of photography in Brussels since 2002.

Creatif Image believes that photography is more than just using your camera on auto mode and depressing the shutter button. Photography and images are ways of creative self expression. My goal is that your photography journey with me should be an enlightening, fun and a positive experience.  

The popularity and success of the workshops is due to its philosophy that Photography is a living art form, not something static that is taught from a textbook. The workshops are highly interactive based on group discussion  rather than traditional classroom type of teaching.  

Discover photography in plain simple English without getting too technical.

  • Thanks again for your very interesting workshop. 
    I really enjoyed it and learned a lot. You explained us the basic skills in a very understandable way and as a teacher you really motivate. Also the relaxed and informal atmosphere during the workshop is very very nice.

I particularly appreciated the professional way of conducting the sessions while sharing very personal hints and lessons learned from the field. Thank you, Michael!”

    Enrico Ruggieri, ITALY 
  • I followed the workshop ‘basic photography’ with Michael. I learnt a lot from him (he is absolutely a great teacher, and, a patient one as well !). The exercices in the class with my own camera were very helpful in understandng my camera and all its possiblities. The ‘ambiance’ in the class with other students from over the world was unique. I can recommend the course to anyone who is, like me, a true debutant in the matter….

    Esmeralda Tobing, Belgo-Indonesia

  • “I attended the introduction to photography class with Michael, which was a real eye-opener. Great explanations for those of us who used to ‘point and shoot’. Michael has developed a step by step approach to cover all the neccessities for aspiring photographers. I strongly recommend the course and thanks to Michael, I am now staying off the pre programed modes.”

    Jana Savova, Czech Republic
  • “And now I understand the basics!  Very kool!”

    David Cutsforth, U.K.

About the photographer

Michael Chia

He was born in the city-state of Singapore and moved to ‘sunny’ Belgium in the late 80’s.  He currently resides in the beautiful city of Brussels that he now calls home.

As a child he wanted to be an astronaut. His adventure into photography began when at about eleven years old, he permanently borrowed, a simple Kodak point and shoot camera from his mother.

During the nights, he would point it to space and photographed the stars. He was disappointed with the results. They were obviously underexposed. Later he would come to realise that the camera does not capture what the eye sees. And on to discover that it could freeze a moment in space, in time. And his first steps into realising that imagination could be captured with the art of photography.

Besides leading the photography workshops, he works commercially in audio & visual industry as a photographer and videographer.

His commercial work can be found at www.michaelchia.eu
