VDH Photo-Import was founded in Belgium in 1991 by Katrien Vanderhaegen as a daughter company
of Vanderhaegen Bvba (founded in 1971).
At that time Katrien was still studying at Solvay's Business school (University of Brussels (U.L.B.)).
Katrien graduated in 1993 and decided to continue importing photographic equipment.
Her Department rapidly expanded and Katrien worked hard to give her company an image of reliability.
The clientfriendly atmosphere of VDH Photo-Import helped her to enforce an already excellent
relationship with her
customers. The product lines she distributes are constantly growing and so does her business.
She is today the exclusive distributor for High-end products from the US, Europe and Asia.
