Years of photography
years of pole-dancing
As an eight years old I was already making pictures with disposable camera’s and kept this interest alive. In 2010 I joined the photo-club of my University in Eindhoven and learned about the technical details of this art. I got serious feedback which helped a lot to improve and create my own style. As I discovered pole-dancing in 2012, I got quickly hooked at this fantastic sport. I’s such an complete workout, fun and empowering. I sometimes take aerial-hoop or silk cursus. I always loved acrobatic shows but since I’m practicing the disciplines myself I have a greater admiration for the acts as you realize much better the difficulty and needed control.
In 2013 the idea germ of blending my passions together under the supervision of my now husband, Patrick Kaas, the photographer of PK-Foto, specialized in glamour photography, who keeps my skills sharp. After purchasing my first stage (an X-stage) we moved to a bigger photostudio in Eindhoven, 5 meter high with a safe hangpoint, making much more possible during pole-dance photoshoots. I now even own an aerial hoop, aerial silk and two other stages which gives me a lot of flexibility.
Since then I have photographed a lot of (pole-)dancers and I feel grateful to have worked with the best pole-athletes of Europe. My dream would be once to work with Cirque du Soleil artists or photograph their show… who know what the future holds!
I am currently working on a photo exposition and have a few photo-projects to unveil yet, next to event bookings and private photoshoot. Too many ideas, too little time. I love being able to create beautiful images, make people happy with them and working with great aerial artists.
PixCel.fr is a name invented as a combination of "Pix" and "Cel". Pix comes from pictures/pixel and Cel from a nickname I often use on internet. As a french expat in the Netherlands, I chose .fr for an extension. Back then I though it was a funny insider word-joke. Now I realised how hard it is for people to spell or just say it right. I'll go toward "Photography by Caroline Demey" eventually, but now everyone know me as the photographer behind PixCel.fr :-)

When I don't work for clients, I work on my art projects...

From the the clic on the camera, every photographer owns the copyright on every photo he or she makes. That means a picture cannot be published, reproduced or used by any mean without the explicit authorization from the photographer. This is also valid with the pictures that have been made during a photoshoot or event, unless agreed otherwise, for example by buying the licensing rights.
The person represented on the picture (here called model) has a portrait right and can refuse the use or publication of the pictures where he or she is appearing (unless the picture is taken during a public event like a competition). I will never publish a picture without your permission. I explicitely ask every model & client if I may use the pictures in my portfolio or ask to sign a model release form.
Therefore, please remember that unless the licensing rights have been purschased, the pictures taken during a photoshoot cannot be used or published without my consent. Publishing them on social media however is accepted as long as it is correctly credited (use logo and link to my social media pages).
