About Me

Let me introduce myself,

My name is Damona and i’m totally in love with Vintage / Retro styles back from the 20’s to 70’s. Yes even flower power interests me as well, i’m born in the 70’s and photographing models since late 2010, that was just because someone asked me to photograph her in a vintage way. Since then i got the vibe for all things Vintage related.
My work consists of themes as i like working that way, it’s also easier for everyone involved to know what to do and how to act. it does not necessarily needs to be themes who already exists. One can make he’s own themes i believe.
My inspiration comes from style icons like Ava Gardner, Gil Elvgren, Vargas, Bette Davis, Ginger Rogers, Jean Arthur, Vivien Leigh, Marilyn Monroe, Bettie page and also European actresses like Marlene Dietrich, Sophia Loren, Greta Garbo etc....

I often see myself finding inspiration from the smallest and simplest things like watching some Star Trek series or Old Hollywood movies. I think it’s also interesting to incorporate Vintage cameras into my shootings, as they give the photos just that little extra touch and it’s silly, it’s like filming in the film, it makes it all so real. Visit my website to see more at :

I'm not an ordinary photographer. 'Black Carousel Studio' is a dedicated Retro and Pinup Photo Studio located around Brussels/ Leuven in Belgium. I spend all of my time shooting Retro/Vintage and Glamour photos and always looking for the right models to create that scene i have in my mind. I also keep improving my techniques as i think that is very important to make new unique photos.

I like shooting at bars, candyshops, , Forest, Airfields, oldtimer garages, beach, castles, home interiors, events etc) It all depends on the theme we are working on.
I do have a lot of props at home to use for my shoots......especially Retro stuff :-)
Anything is possible with the right mind-set and a lot of hard work and i also created "Black Carousel Studios" in my home, that makes it very cosy to welcome people and have a little chat and drink before we get started. Having the right team is important and i have some luck to mostly have the perfect team to work with, as they know what i want and they are happy to follow my (free creativity) instructions hehehe.

To tell you, i’m a very positive thinking woman and someone who is always happy and laughing. Life is just too damn short to let fear or sadness control our lives.
Sometimes people think i’m a little crazy.....well maybe i am a little.....I think that’s only healthy. This is great whenever i get the opportunity to use this positive energy within my shoots.Always trying to stretch my limits and to achieve the best quality in my photos makes me who i am. Someone passionate and born about 50 years too late.
