Biography

​Well, about me... simple country gal, born and raised in Germany, since 2008 in Canada and happy to call it home. Mother of two, Grandma of three, animal lover and western rider. Imaginative, curious and determined to go through life with a vast sense of humor.

Although I have always been fascinated with photography

I never thought of becoming a photographer myself until

I owned my first DSLR Camera in 2015. The necessity to master the camera and the exploration of its possibilities

fulled my desire to learn and understand all aspects of photography. My journey into the technical and artistic details of capturing and editing images then led to the launching of "Pictured by GMG Photography" in 2017.

Two years later I became a member of the "Professional Photographers of Canada" and recently started working on my first accreditation.

Based in the small, quiet town of Grunthal (ca. 80km

north of Winnipeg) I specialize in Equine Photography and also offer natural light "People" and "Pet Sessions". While still growing as an artist, I am passionately pursuing my dream of capturing meaningful moments in time and preserving precious memories by creating beautiful, timeless images.

I hope you enjoyed the stroll through my pictures and the stories they tell, it was my pleasure to have you here. A very big "thank you" goes to my sister, Marianne Drews and my Son Lukas who both keep providing me with lovely pictures of myself. If you have any questions, opinions or just the urge to talk, please don't hesitate, just click the contact button and send me a few lines or connect with me through Facebook or give me a call. I would love to hear from you!
