Wherever I am, there's usually a camera nearby. Because I'm a photographer. And a model. And so, this blog is a collection of some of my work on both sides of the camera (peppered with some musings and reveries). Please check out my complete photography portfolio at: www.petraford.com.

A little more about me:

In some capacity, I’ve been photographing for most of my life, but formally since January 2007. I was originally drawn to photojournalism, street photography, and documentary photography, which are still my first loves. I love capturing real moments, real emotions, real people.

For the past few years, however, I’ve been focusing on fashion and beauty photography. Instead of being a silent documenteur, I now have control over every aspect of the photograph. It’s an exciting challenge and I love what I do.

And guess what…I shoot weddings too! They’re a magical blend of photojournalism and portraiture and, let’s face it, I’m a hopeless romantic and love photographing true love. Cheesy, but true :)

I also work on the other side of the camera as a model, represented by Stewart Talent and Shirley Hamilton.  Knowing first-hand what the model is thinking and feeling is a huge advantage to me as a photographer. And of course it’s been a fun ride too, and I plan to do it as long as possible! 

Oh, and if you’re Danish and think I look familiar….yes, I’m a cast member on the show “Alt for Danmark.”  Jeg elsker Danmark!

Thanks for reading my blog. If you’re ever in Chicago, I hope to get to know you through my lens.

(Psst, one last thing—my name is pronounced pay-tra)
