New Travel Photography Workshop Guatemala October 30 - November 7, 2017. This workshop is an opportunity to visit Guatemala as a traveller, not a tourist. We'll focus on seeing better light on location, shooting a giant kite festival on All Saint's Day, photographing the highland lake surrounded by volcanoes, visiting indigenous Mayan villages and a visit to a boy's ranch where once discarded boys have found a new home and faith. We will work alongside with the boys for 2 days with our cameras and however else they need help.
This workshop is limited to 8 participants. A phone conversation is required before registration, please.   541 579 9929

The new website is here with more philosophy and details. 


Emergency or media calls are OK 24 hours!  


Sherrlyn Borkgren tells stories through the camera and video 

From the small and simple to the large and challenging I thrive on bringing a wide spectrum of visions to life.


  • I listen carefully to what you want
  • Help you with project concept development
  • send dependable and fair cost estimate
  • your ideas get done on time
  • work well with teams
  • ready to talk when you are. 

I work with budgets and I'm flexible on projects. Every business has a story let me help you find yours. 

Are you looking for a simple headshot or do you have a major project. Let's talk.

You've got only seconds to represent yourself so if it isn't excellent it's not good enough.

Customer Service philosophy:

People are a priority. 
I meet deadlines, deliver your message, create an unique dynamic image of you and tell your story with images and (or) words. 

Whether it be a business portrait, a family portrait, a boudoir fashion shoot, or NEWS you will always get my best.
I understand the "business”—budgets, deadlines, contracts, logistics and return on investment. I can promise that if I cannot be passionate about the shoot I won't accept the job. 

Stories are about People, Places and Things. Verbs are our friends. 
Every one, every event has a story when you look for it.
