MEET Västerås photographer- Shippey

Meet me

Helen Shippey the photographer that prefers to be out in the nature in Västerås

I enjoy the freedom to be able to bring my camera equipment and basically work wherever I want and feel for today.

My daughter has through her short life been involved in more photo assignments than she can probably count herself. Everything from that I have gone from a photo shoot to breastfeed for a while to now that she is 7 and helping out assisting a little with holding flashes to hiking with us in the mountains.

I love helping others, I want to inspire you to be better at taking your own pictures and to dare to take the step of doing what you are driven by that will make you want to get out of bed in the morning. I would like to share how you, like me, can make the life puzzle work with working freelance with children who at the same time needs to stay up to date with their school work.

I think it’s fun to collaborate with people I like don’t you? You maybe want to join me on my next photo adventure?

Västerås fotografen som även föreläser & utbildar!

I like to teach photography outdoors in a place where you can practice at once with your photography equipment on what you want to learn to be better at in photography. Read more about my photo workshops here 

I also hold seminars and workshops about my business journey in the photography profession. 

Has given several seminars on what it is like to be a female photographer in the male-dominated Middle East. 

I have worked and lived in both Taba Heights, Egypt and Dubai, United Arab Emirates for a total of 13 years. I then traveled around the Middle East on various photo assignments. Everything from capturing Arab Royal (Sheikh) weddings to photographing President Donald Trump and H.M. Queen Silvia, Alice Cooper and many more. 

Inspirational lectures about my business journey from start to now, how I have found every banana peel that has led me to where I am today!

What do my customers think of me?

Its always fun and educational to hear what my clients think of my photography and my services.

Have taken photo walks with Helen in Dubai and Sweden. Helen is a wonderful teacher who captures you where you are in terms of knowledge so you take such good pictures. I can highly recommend Helen and her photo walks.

A very professional, pedagogical and very creative course out in nature with Helen. The course gave me lots of tips and a lot of backbone in my continued photography, thank you!

I hired Helen on several occasions, both to photograph students at a high school, children at a preschool and portraits of employees. She is very good at capturing people, whether they are children or adults, she has an eye for detail and is very innovative in her photography. The photographs becomes really good. I can highly recommend Helen
