My name is Trude von Liebenstein. Born in Medan, Indonesia, I moved to Amsterdam together with my parents and older brother at a very young age. I currently live in Amsterdam with my husband. I consider myself lucky because all my loved ones live very close by.
As a little girl I developed my love for photography by browsing our family’s photo albums. When digital photography entered the stage, my interest grew and I started practising photography myself. I took a basic course at the University of Amsterdam. I prefer human portraits, but my many travels to photogenic countries taught me how to enjoy capturing flowers, animals, landscapes, street life, food and more. I only work with natural light because I think it makes for the best possible photographs.
