My name is Gery ten Broek and I discovered the world of photography at a later stage in my life. I am self-taught, and have done this by taking many photographs and experimenting. Along the way, developing a passion for portrait photography, resulting in opening my own studio in 2016.

I am happiest creating portraits that tell a story and touch me emotionally. I like to show subjects, that that are close to my heart, in a series of photo’s. The series tells the story that I feel needs to be told. As well as this, I like to take photos as an art form. Keywords for my photography are, Vulnerability, stillness, the story and the emotion.

Together with my Husband and our dog, Dex, I live in Elst, Gelderland. Between the rivers the Rijn and the Waal. I am a mother of 5 children and a grandmother of 7 Grandchildren.

With pride, I show a number of, for me, significant events.
