My name is Heather Oortman, born and raised in Crosby near Liverpool in the UK, but have lived in Holland for many moons!

I was first introduced to photography when at Art College in Southport studying among other subjects Graphic Design.
I have worked both in Liverpool and The Hague in advertising as a Graphic Designer.
My interests are mainly art, culture and creativity and I have always been intensely interested in photography.
So, after my children left home I felt the need to spend more time improving my knowledge of photography and found Images the perfect environment to do this in and I have been an IMAGES member since 2008.
Many times I have joined in hands-on club events, weekends away and have listened to many intriguing and well-known speakers and learned an amazing amount, but above all have had lots of fun and thoroughly enjoyed meeting many interesting and knowledgeable people from the expat world.
