Gerda (Geertruida) Kreeft was born on November 22, 1985 in Drenthe. When she was half a year old, it was discovered that she was born deaf. Gerda attended the Deaf Institute in Haren and obtained her HAVO diploma. Immediately after secondary school she did basic education at Fotovakschool in Apeldoorn. Afterwards she did several educations but nevertheless fell back into the photography. In 2014 she obtained her diploma at the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam.
In 2015 she started her own company ‘Gerda Photography‘.
Her passion is traveling and photographing. If she is traveling she can not do without her camera. Her camera must always come along. Gerda sees things differently from others due to her deafness. She is more attentive to details and colors. Capture the moments are also very important for Gerda. She shows through the images the true truth of a place. Just as it is. At the same time Gerda also shows things in the photos that others probably would not see. That is her quality.
In her free time she likes to read, walk with her dog, have a dinner somewhere and drink wine, be with friends, travelling with her wife and cook.
