"Shoot from the heart!"
”I expect it to have impact, originality, mood, an artistic component or a special point of view. I find those qualities more important than perfect technique. Surprise with difference!”
His advice for accomplishing this is as creativly put as his images:
”Look beyond the obvious. Point left when all the others point right. Embrace the unexpected. Shoot from the heart and keep an open mind. Go out when the others stay in. Don’t look with your eyes, but with your mind. Create your own style and continue to develop it.”
Finally, there is one inevidable question. What is there left to do? According to Ben Goossens himself, there is still one thing he hasn’t done yet. To create the ”perfect composed surreal image”. That is now his primary goal. If you ask anyone who watches his portfolio, they would probably say he has already fullfilled it. About 133 times.

You are the Top!!!
Thanks Carmine... love your style !
Beste Ben , via dit interview heb ik een blik gekregen over je loopbaan in de creative sector ; iets waar je weinig over vertelt. Ook heb ik geleerd waar je koppigheid en visie vandaan komen. De doortastendheid waarmee jij je visie op fotografie hebt volgehouden heeft je na lang vechten erkenning gebracht ... terecht. Ik hoop dat ik voor het salon je uitspraak : " Don't look with your eyes , but with your mind " mag gebruiken als mijn "leuze" bij onze volgende expo... Sterk interview .... Groetjes , Jef
Bedankt Jef:-) Wat ik maak is logisch gevolg van wat ik er voor deed.
Great creations and ideas Ben! You have your own signature..... Looking forward to your new creations. Have a great new week and take care! :-)
Thanks Edith:-) Best, Ben
