Brenda Herdman trained as a portrait photographer in London, and is now a freelance photographer in the Borders, which is her main work base and forms the subject matter of most of her images. Her photographs of local animals, like this young sheep, reflect her portrait training as she presents the individual character of the animal to the viewer.

Brenda Herdman has been working with cameras since she was given her first Brownie box at the age of seven. It was through this that she discovered the fascination of a world in black and white. Later work as a portrait photographers apprentice in London enriched her knowledge of darkroom techniques, which she was to make use of in her subsequent career as a freelance photographer. Her darkroom is in the Borders, which is her main work base and forms the subject matter of most of her images, although she regularly spends part of the year abroad.
