My name is Beata Rydén. I´m 33 years old and I live in Gothenburg, a rainy town at the west coast of southern Sweden. I´m a photographic artist and this is my personal blog where I write about creativity, self development and every day life. Photography is my biggest passion and my best form of therapy.
Photography- my passion.
I found my passion in photography in 2011. I started my business in 2013. Since then I´ve hold lectures and workshops together with my colleague Victoria Söderström. I´m also a teacher at the Swedish photography website Moderskeppet. I sell my images through the gallery Piqmo and I have exhibitions in Sweden and other countries (US, UK, Portugal). I sell my art as limited edition prints, license my images and sometimes (when it´s a good match) I do commissions. You can see my art here.
I do other things too.
Apart from photography I´m an educated cultural project manager. I´ve also studied cultural sciences, film, art, psychology, creative writing, audiology and much more.
Though my main goal is to be a freelance artist, I´m at a place in my life where I need something steady and safe to balance my freelance career. My dream is to combine my art with a more ”ordinary” job. Nothing is for certain yet, so follow along on my journey and you´ll see what happens 😉
Some facts about me:
- I´m a writing person. From the day I learned to write I´ve been keeping a journal. Nowadays I mostly write my journal on the computer, though I always carry a note book for sudden poems, photo ideas and emotional outbursts.
- I´m a huge fan of coffee. Not only coffee, but coffee moments. There´s something wonderful about making a cup of coffee, open a book, read a blog or listen to a podcast. The first sip of coffee in the morning is a blessing!
- I love pastel pink. I always have and I always will. That´s why both my computer and all the links on my blog are pink 🙂
- Nature is very important to me. I shoot most of my photos outside in nature, and I love to be outside, listening to the birds in the forest or watching the waves on the ocean. My dream is to live in the country side.
