Hi, I'm Caroline
I'm Caroline, a pole dancer since 2012 and photographer since 2010. With PixCel.fr, I combine my passions to create a high-quality photography service for aerial arts like pole dancing, silks, and hoop.
Late 2012, I had my first pole dance photoshoot with my partner Patrick Kaas from PK-foto who taught me everything I know about photography. Since then, I've been capturing beautiful and empowering images of dancers in the best light possible.
Based in Eindhoven, I am French and speak fluently Dutch.
I've been interested in photography since I was eight years old, taking pictures with disposable cameras and keeping that passion alive. In 2010, I joined the photo-club at my university in Eindhoven, where I learned the technical details of this art and received valuable feedback that helped me develop my own style.
In 2012, I discovered pole-dancing and became quickly hooked on this fantastic sport. It's such a complete workout that's also fun and empowering. Sometimes, I take aerial-hoop or silk courses, and I've always loved acrobatic shows. But since I started practicing these disciplines myself, I have a greater admiration for the acts, as I realise the difficulty and control required.
It was in 2012 that I decided to blend my passions together, with the encouragement of my now-husband Patrick Kaas, the photographer of PK-Foto, who specialises in glamour photography and keeps my skills sharp. After purchasing my first stage (an X-stage), we moved to a bigger photo studio in Eindhoven, which was five meters high and had a safe hangpoint, allowing us to do much more during pole-dance photoshoots. I then purchased my own aerial hoop, aerial silk, and two other stages, which gave me a lot of flexibility.
As of 2020, we moved to a bigger house with a high room in the attic, making it the perfect place for aerial training and photoshoots <3. Since then, I've had the opportunity to photograph many (pole-)dancers, and I feel grateful to have worked with the best pole-athletes in Europe. My dream is to work with Cirque du Soleil artists or photograph their show. Who knows what the future holds!
Currently, I'm working on a photo exposition and have a few photo projects to unveil, in addition to event bookings and private photoshoots. I have too many ideas and too little time, but I love being able to create beautiful images, make people happy with them, and work 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 :)
