The firm of "Edmond Bastijns & Cie" was founded in Antwerp on 1.3.1902 for a period of 10 years, for the purpose of "trading in chemical products and the sale and purchase of photographic cameras". Shareholders were Bastyns himself, described as a druggist, Auguste Demblon, an electrician and Franz Willems, a clerk (see those names). Member of the photography section of the "Katholieke Kring" in 1900-1905 ("Bastijns", no initial). Invented a trichromatic camera in 1908. Collaborated with Joseph Sury (see that name) to commercialize their joint patents for colour photography, 1908-1911. Photographs published in "Le National Illustré" in 1907 and 1909.
