Welcome to my website. My name is Freya Szeremet (pronounced fray’-ah shoo-re’-met). I am a photographer based in Frisco, Texas (Northern Dallas suburb) specializing in sports action /sportraits and high school seniors.
I love photography. It satisfies both my mechanical side and creative side. Nothing else has this perfect combination. I am a mechanical engineer who decided to stay home with my wonderful boys when they were introduced to this world. I am a research nerd which is a typical trait of an engineer. I consider myself creative and I see things a little differently as I was raised in Japan most of my childhood surrounded by its amazing culture, architectures, arts, and food(!). Naturally, I learned to pay attention to details growing up in such a detail oriented environment.
I started photographing hockey when my boys first got into hockey and quickly found out that hockey is one of the hardest sports to photograph… Hockey has always been my favorite sports. Understanding the sports and the camera, and being a research nerd, it did not take long for me to figure out what it takes to photograph hockey. I totally fell in love with photographing youth hockey. In the last few years, I have shot over 500 games, including many of the local tournaments as an official photographer. I am the official photographer of Ice Times Magazine and Grapevine Wolves Hockey organization.
After becoming proficient in photographing hockey, it was much easier to venture into other world of photography. My interests have grown and I have been photographing more and more portraits (both in studio and outdoor) and macro photography. My latest interest has been creating photo composites using my images. I love creating edgy posters of athletes and that is the direction I would like my business to grow.
I am continuously learning. I don’t think there is an end to learning, so I will keep shooting:)
