About Birgitta

My name is Birgitta, but most people call me Bee. I was born in Delft in The Netherlands and moved to Shropshire at aged 7, finally adopting Shrewsbury as my home town aged 14. I've been falling in love with The Shire ever since.

Camera's and photos were always a part of my life, my mother always making a darkroom in the houses we lived and I loved my grandparent's huge collection of family photos dating back to the late 1800's that I would pour over on my summer visits. Living in a different country from all my family meant that photographs were and still are of great importance, connecting me to those I love across the sea.

I'm self-taught, buying my first DSLR with my student loan whilst studying textile design in my mid-thirties. I started taking photos every day, of everything I found interesting from plants and insects to what fascinates me the most - people and the emotional connection between them.

Photography is as much a part of who I am as it is what I do. When I am taking photographs for you I am searching for those moments and connections I know you will treasure in years to come so that when you see them as photographs they give you goosebumps and bring the moment back to you.

It's my passion and I can't wait to bring your moments back to life for you.
