Hi! I'm Louise. I am a photographer from Sweden. I have worked alone with my photography career for over three years. I have photoshoots with people I know and then post the results on social media and I'd like to learn how to attract other clients and make my own brand bigger on social media.  I am looking for people that want to collaborate on doing photoshoots together.


Taking pictures is always something I have liked to do, ever since my dad bought me mig first little camera. In the beginning it was for fun but I've grown to love it more and more and now I really want to make it my business.

My inspiration is the work I do and the results I get. The feeling of getting that good picture or seeing other people appreciate my work, that’s the most exciting part of it.


Most of the times I photograph people so below I have attached a photo I personally like very much.

I need support Everyone.😊

Shefali, if you say you're a writer, you can't use ChatGPT to generate the description on your profile with grammar mistakes. 

If you want to succeed as a freelancer, you need to master a skill and become a specialist in a field you're providing services in. 

Also go through the Academy, because you're a perfect profile for scammers.


Good luck!
