I am Jean-Claude Dalle, born on july 15th 1968 in Wervik, Belgium. I studied informatics and started working in 1989. Nowadays, I am still active in the IT sector.

Languages: Dutch, French, English, Italian, Spanish, German

Hobbies: photography, travelling, music & movies.

photography: I like a lot of types of photography, but like "typical sceneries", architecture & landscapes. I followed photo-academy for a couple of years, where I specialised in black and white photography (dark-room techniques...). Nowadays, although I still have my dark-room, most of my works are done in the "digital dark-room".

travel: professionally, I have been travelling a lot, this for more than 10 years. I worked in European countries like Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Switserland, Greece ... and in some more remote locations like India, China, Mexico & Brazil. Of all the countries I visited, my preference goes out to Italy. It is a fantastic country, which has a lot to offer: good climate, excellent food, a lot of history, sea, lakes, mountains, ... just everything a "bon-vivant" needs, and it presents just every theme a photographer can imagine.  I worked there for a couple of years, and have retured to Italy many many times in the meantime. Visited locations in Italy.

music
: a bit of everything, except hard-rock, heavy metal, pure hip-hop/rap & pure classical music. I have a special  interest in eighties music, and even more specifically in New Wave. Favourites in this area are Simple Minds, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, U2, ...
Next to having music as hobby general, I especially like "remixes" and everything alike. Always liked "mixes", and bought a lot of "maxi-singles" & "mixes" in the eighties. At that time, I also played as disk-jockey in a local night-bar, where we had a lot of "special imports" and "limited edition mixes". Nowadays, I still have a penchant for "good" remixes. Occasionally, I do some mixing myself.  I started years ago on a Hercules DJ-console MKII. Lately, I upgraded to a Reloop Digital Jockey II Interface Edition. I am a registered user of Virtual-DJ Professional Edition and Traktor 2 Pro.

movies: I especially like action movies and alike... everything where there is a certain level of "action", "suspense" or "mystery" envolved. But I do like other genres as wel, except the "middle-age" type movies like "Pride & Prejudice" or "Sense & Sensibility", although I do like "Braveheart" and other historic movies like "300", "Troy", ...
In the action movies, I like "Bad Boys...", "Transporter...", "The Bourne Trilogy", ...
In the more historic movies, I like the "Lord Of The Rings trilogy", "Gladiator", "300", "Troy", ...
In the romantic/glamour genre, I like "9 1/2 weeks", "P.S. I Love You", "Notting Hill", ...
When I need a laugh, I go for the "Lethal Weapon" series.
