Piet (pronounced as “Pete”) Van den Eynde is a Belgian freelance photographer, trainer and prolific author.
In 2009, he threw his camera, a flash and umbrella in his bicycle panniers and cycled for one year through Turkey, Iran, India and Indonesia.
He loves travel, photography and off-camera flash so his photographic work is often a combination of those three.
Together with travel photographer Matt Brandon, Piet organizes travel photography workshops in India and Mongolia.
Piet is also a Fujifilm X Photographer and a Fujifilm Ambassador for Fujifilm Belgium.
On April 1st, 2018, Piet released the updated and expanded second edition of his 15th eBook, Light It Up! Techniques for Dramatic Off-Camera Flash. In this 185 page PDF eBook, he introduces you to the concepts, techniques and gear that are required to create stunning photographs with flash. The eBook is the culmination of over 10 years of experience with real-life location flash in general and off-camera flash in particular.
In this episode of the podcast, we interviewed Piet about what it means to do flash photography when traveling. Piet also shared with us his experience of using the Fujifilm GFX-50S medium format camera around the world, another unusual choice for travel photographers, who usually like to travel nimble and with a lightweight bag of gear.

One thought on “TTIM 122 – Piet Van den Eynde and Travel Photography with Flash”
I was actually with Piet when he shot a couple of these shots. And, as a relatively new photographer can attest to his ability to educate and share his skills with off-camera flash. He truly makes it seem easy and natural. Since my time with Piet, I’ve had a bit of success on my own. So, as a noob photographer, I can highly recommend Piet’s books. Oh, and I was with him when he shot a couple of his book covers. How lucky can a guy be?!
