‘…a true master of vivid portraits’
‘In my opinion, a professional portrait is an absolute must for all self-employed persons, who wish to indicate quality and trustworthiness. It takes a photographer who knows her business. Who wants to end up with a stiff, lifeless and stereotypical portrait that barely resembles a living person?
I chose Helga because she is a true master of vivid portraits. She turns a photo session into an enjoyable and relaxing experience where you never feel awkward. In addition, she has a remarkable ability to capture the very essence of your personality – and bring about ‘the real you’. The presence, the seriousness and the twinkle in one’s eye. I believe my portraits are visible proof of this, and I am extremely satisfied.’
Rikke Moos, Copywriter and Marketing Mentor
‘…have learned how to be photographed’
“I have learned HOW TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED! Which in my professional life has been a huge benefit. I used to fear the camera, with the result that it was never kind to me. But now I face the camera, and can present my best self.”
Susan Goldstein Associates, director
‘…in a very sober and solidary manner’
“Helga is strong. She takes pictures of shabby, living people on the edge. In a very sober and solidary manner, she leads us into a world that most people are afraid to approach- or even see”.
Tom Gottfredsen, head director HK Statbladet
‘…you will be listened to from the heart’
“At its best, portrait photography is the result of an artistic process. The photographer has a sincere curiosity towards, what it is that you contain inside, and may be processing inside. And you tell from the heart, because you will be listened to from the heart.
This is how the best and most experienced photographers are able to capture something that you did not know that you contained within yourself. This is why I like Helga Theilgaard. And this is why I, again, chose her with the task to find my contemporary expression.”
Pernille Bøge, management counsellor
‘…has shown great empathy and understanding’
‘Helga has delivered photographs for Hus Forbi, portraits as well as reporting photos, for many years. In that context, Helga has worked with homeless and socially marginalized people. She has been outstanding when it comes to capturing their situation in pictures and conveying the moods from places and environments that vulnerable people frequent. In her dealings with homeless and socially marginalized people, Helga has shown great empathy and understanding.’
Poul Struve Nielsen, Editor, Hus Forbi
‘…the best investment’
‘I just want to say that the portrait you shot is the best investment I have made in this election (municipal election, 2017). So many people have reported back to me, telling me that it is a great picture.’
Torsten Hjort Hansen, Socialdemokratiet, Lejre Kommune
’… it holds the energy that I want to represent’
’A great portrait exudes personality and gives you a sense of looking into the depths of a person. You find it difficult to let go of the eye contact with the person in the picture and want to know more about him or her. I used my portrait in connection with celebrating my 50th birthday, among other things for publicity in newspapers, and I received so much recognition and feedback from everyone who saw it. Today, I use my portrait across the social and digital media platforms that I attend. It sends out a professional vibe and at the same time, it holds the energy that I want to represent.’
Marianne Due, Digital Director, Sjællandske Medier
