Working Together

As concepts go, ‘teamwork’ is a big seller.It may appear that images of business teams have been done to death.Not so: a great image of a group of two or more in an office environment working together in an authentic manner, will sell again and again.Styles in furniture and clothing change too so images must always be updated.

Photography - the first contact

From all the uses that my photography has for me, the first useful contact came to me in the form of scientific support.

For the sake of the horses

Do you know somebody that doesn’t love horses? Well, I also adore them! And I get really crazy when I have a chance to take photos of them. Especially shooting horses in action. That night when my husband and friends took me to my first horse races was a magical night for me. Or I taught so…It was a dark, very cold and windy evening.
