Johan Poelmans


My name is Johan Poelmans and I was born in 1969. I’m an enthusiastic photographer who has a great passion for music and concert photography. Since 2010, it’s been my pleasure to work with CPU.

A couple of years ago we were all gearing up to shoot Faith No More at Dour when all of a sudden we were asked to sign-up for a shoot list and we were told that FNM management would make a selection of photographers who were allowed front-stage access. Anxiously, we all filed up at the frontstage entrance to hear if we were accepted or not. After some nervous minutes a teenaged security volunteer showed up with the shoot list, fretted, put it in his back pocket and allowed anyone in who was carrying anything that remotely resembled a professional camera.  As a result, the front stage was chock-full of would be photographers and there was hardly any room to move. Still got great pictures from a great band, though!

I hope you’ll enjoy our work found on this website and please contact our staff if you have any questions.

All the best,
Johan Poelmans
