Hello and thank you for taking the time to take a look at my website.
My name is Bertilla and I come from The Netherlands. My family and I bought an old farmhouse in the Dordogne in 2005, which is where we work and live. I studied at the Photo Academy in both Rotterdam and Amsterdam and speak English, French and Dutch fluently, which is a great asset in my work.
After my studies I specialised in people and events, weddings, families, portraits, interiors and PhotoShop Art. Apart from the technicalities of my profession, these specialities require something more. You have to believe and see the beauty of people, the romance and hope of a marriage and the unconditional love between children and parents. The same goes for the love and care that have been put into a home. It is all about capturing the soul of a person, a relationship, an event or a special place. And it is this which makes my profession so inspiring.
As a hopeless romantic and a technical perfectionist I have found a métier that is just perfect for me. I sincerely hope this transpires through the selection of photographs that I present to you in my portfolio on this website.
