ABOUT > ABOUT PASCAL


After a traditional education, Pascal chose to develop his artistic creativity by becoming a photographer.  Since 1994, he has been creating portraits, fashion, nudes as well as travel assignments for editorial, commercial and private clients, including Elle, Men's Health, FHM and Maxim.

His collections of subtle nudes have been published in several art books 'The Fragile Touch', 'Allegro Sensibile' ('The Art of Nude Photography' USA-edition), 'Heavenly Girls' ('Heavenly Beauties' USA-edition), 'A Pocketful of Nudes', and the how-to-book 'Nude Photography, the Art and the Craft'. His work has also been  featured in various notable books on modern photography and exhibited throughout Asia, Europe and North America.

Pascal has interviewed photographers such as Avedon, Bitesnich, Dunas, Lindbergh, Maroon and Witkin and has curated various exhibitions. 


In 2008, Pascal received the title of Master Qualified European Photographer, the highest recognition given by the Federation of European Professional Photographers (FEP).

Pascal Baetens has an extensive program of lectures and workshops. He lives and works at Salve Mater,  the former psychiatric hospital/monastery in Lovenjoel, Belgium.
