“Reginar knows what is classy, has the ability to improvise and has a great esthetic eye”
Reginar - Olympus Visionary, Photographer & Visual Artist - is the creative alias of me, Stijn Doors. Being out on the streets a lot by myself from very young age, I'm particularly attracted to that what is going on around us. I think you could call it a heigtened sense of spatial awareness. With my signature use of colors, energy, creative angles and digital editing techniques, I always try to create a unique scene, mood or composition. My main focus at the moment is urban, steet & architecture photography, however my visual taste and interest as a creative artist extend much further than that.
Building on my experience in branding & creative direction for REGINAR MEDIA and my former international DJ/producer career, helps me to combine many important aspects in order to design a story and to evoke emotion. What I particularly like is the the thrill of running into something unexpected and about creating synergy on the spot while working with the environment or with others. Planning everything ahead of time can be important, but.. it 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.
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. As I also firmly believe in the power of aesthethics to design & tell a story, create emotion and add to the positive inspiration for all of us on earth.
