Mike Louagie started as a freelance ‘maritime’ photographer 30 years ago, in the ferry port of Ostend, Belgium. His first customer was the Ostend-Dover ferry company, soon followed by many others. Over the years his job made him travel on almost every single new cruise vessel and ferry.
Eventually he started to write as well, for shipping industry magazines and travel agent publications, and for consumer magazines. For seven years Mike was editor-in-chief for an international B2B magazine.
Now he is the editor for the Ferry Shipping News, and continues to discover the cruise and ferry industry with passion. Cruise & ferry photographer, writer, lecturer, consultant, inspirer and story teller, what a dream job!
