This photo walk is about showing you Brussels, the city I care about as a dynamic backround and putting you in a focus centre of it. We'll explore the artsy side of Brussels with comic strip walls and Art Nouveau architecture, while building your Instagrams with colorful, must-have BXL photos! We will discover several comic strip walls and photo locations around Grand-Place and the Marolles. While we pass these comic strip murals I ll give you a short introductory of what these comics are about. We will see also real places in Brussels from these comics like Jeu de Balle fleamarket from The Tintin adventure "The Secret of the Unicorn". The tour will end in the front of MOOF museum next to the giant Smurf. I also have tips to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera. So, be ready to have some fun! There will be plenty of high resolution photos from this tour, which 5 best photos will be emailed to you within 1-2 days, with an easy Wetransfer downloadable link. I’ll be snapping shots of you all along the way to capture your adventure in Brussels like you would be one of the belgian comic characters yourself. I’ll direct you, and help style your shoot for the best possible results. I can provide some props in some of the tour locations and you can for example jump into the role of Spirou or Tintin or play with Marsupilami in your photo shoots.
