Artist's Fine Art Statement


"Guided by light and line, and recognizing that a photograph is a reflection of a unique, fleeting reality, I strive to bring a quiet, contemplative energy to the frame. Additionally, by focusing on composition and tone — and limiting the use of processing techniques — a further objective is to establish and nurture an intimate affinity with the subject, one that communicates and celebrates the beauty, poignancy and oft-times ironic nature of our chaotic world. Through the art and perspective of photography I seek to bring both understanding and a fine balance to life –  as I experience it."


Birgit's Fine Art prints are currently available on-line only. 

Prices begin at $190 USD or $250 CDN unframed, plus shipping & taxes.




Souls and Ceremony Photography


Documenting Your Events 


Birgit's overarching focus is to document mood and sentiment, capturing the subtleties that suggest the preciousness of the moment — gesture, spirit and flow. 

Your most notable moments are experiences of celebration. They respire with joy and gratitude. Birgit will sensitively document your event so that you may reflect on your memories through the rich portal of photography.

Drop me a line to describe your needs and unique vision.
