Manon Galama - Lifestyle portrait photographer in Stockholm
Hi, I'm Manon Galama
First of all; I'm so happy you are reading my website. Thanks for that! Hopefully I can help you with making these valuable memories for you (and your partner/family).
Now a little bit more about me. I'm Manon, 31 years old and living with my boyfriend in Stockholm. I grew up in the Netherlands, but at the moment I'm living in Stockholm. The city that stole my heart 10 years ago when I stayed here one year as an au-pair.
I would describe myself as a dreamer, creative person, always full of ideas and a outdoors person. Outdoors is the place where I relax, get ideas and simply feel happy. Each day I need to go outside; feel the wind, breath some fresh air and be inspired by the surroundings.
I have been busy with photography since my childhood. Capturing the world as I saw it; full of special places and filled with unique people. During all vacations with my family and friends I brought my camera. But I also photographed a lot at home. My friends were regularly in front of my lens. That enormous love for photography has grown into my own company in 2018. A step that took courage after completing two academic studies. But I felt I had no other choice. My love for photography had grown too big to do nothing with it.
The last 4 years I have been working as a professional lifestyle photographer. Four amazing years in which I had more then 400 people in total in front of my lens. Photography makes me happy, meeting people gives me energy and the creative process gives me a sense of freedom. This is what I love to do most.
My photography style can best be described as raw, authentic and the photos always tell a story. In a world where nothing seems to be what it is, I want to make a difference as a photographer. I want to take pure and real photos that show what we humans really look like and what live really looks like. A mission that stems from a period during my student days when I was very insecure. Insecure about my body and my whole appearance.
Now that I, as a photographer, can choose what kind of images I send into the world, I want each of these images to be pure and authentic photos. Photos that are realistic and tell a true story. I love to photography family stories, love stories or your personal story. You and your story are perfectly good as it is!
