Hello, I'm Anna (Bertie) van de Braak! I am a freelance photographer and film maker based in Newcastle. My primary focus is on Sport photography and videography, specialising in rowing.

I started rowing not long after picking up a camera and so the two naturally coincided. However my photography at that time was merely a hobby. Later in life when I joined the Newcastle University Boat Club, I quickly became a part of a family; being in this environment made photography more enjoyable and I realised it was something I wanted to pursue.

Outside of photography you can find me in a boat on a river/lake or hiking in Northumberland with friends.
