“Reginar knows what is classy, has the ability to improvise and has a great esthetic eye”
Reginar is the creative alias of me, Stijn Doors, an urban & conceptual photographer and Olympus Visionary (Ambassador). With my signature use of colors, energy, creative angles and digital editing techniques I'm always on the hunt for a unique perspective on urban & street photography. I'd say my work has a minimal touch alongside the desire to express for maximal energy and emotion.
Building on my experience in branding & visual design and my former international DJ/producer career give me the ability to combine many important aspects in order to tell a story, evoke emotion and create exposure. Most of my work shown is improvised on the spot letting inspiration come to me when it needs to be there. For me, it’s about the thrill of running into something unexpected and about creating synergy on the spot while working with the environment or with others. Preparation is just a starting point and planning everything ahead of time is just one way of preparing yourself. Day in day out challenging yourself, trying to master your craft and expand your creativity is another way to be prepared. If creative energy flows, something new can be created and boundaries can be pushed. If you can imagine it, you can realize it, that's something I firmly believe in. In line of this I was invited to give a 15 minute "TED" talk about my creative growth model at Talks About Photography.
Oh btw, I'm a bit of a foodie, like to read the sports section of the newspaper with a coffee on Monday morning and can completely lose myself in time and space when I hit my creative sweetspot :).
