Headshots Photographer in Regina Saskatchewan, Canada
Fredau Hoekstra is the photographer for Art of Headshots Regina. She has such an impressive background, and we’re thrilled she is part of our team.
Fredau was raised in the Netherlands, in a little town called Drachten. Naturally, living in Europe, she learned to speak Dutch, English, French and German! After working as a full time model for 10 years, travelling the globe, she settled down in Toronto where she managed a talent agency! “Needing good strong headshots for my talent, I was often not happy with the headshots that my talent provided and started taking them myself. In the process I discovered that I really enjoyed being a photographer.”
Leaving Toronto was a difficult decision, but she was surprised to learn she loves the freedom of living away from the big city, and she doesn’t want to go back. She sometimes gets nostalgic about her childhood in the Netherlands, missing the feel of the ocean breeze on her skin, the smell of salt in the air, and spending time by the water. Fredau will make any place in the world her home, finding happiness as long as she has her husband and daughter by her side. She rarely makes long term plans, preferring to do what feels right in the moment, an attitude she says serves her well in life.
Fredau has a wonderful outlook on life, wisdom, and talent. She considers herself privileged to have seen and learned how the great photographers work, and puts that knowledge to use to take beautiful photographs of her clients. You won’t regret booking a session with Fredau!
