My name is Nanna Vedel-Hertz
And for as long as I can remember I have been telling stories.
This is a collection of some of the stories I am proud to have told.
I fell in love with photography around the age of 14, and I have not been able to put down my camera ever since. I have worked as a freelance photographer since I was 15 photographing everything from demonstrations to rock concerts to weddings.
My written work
So far most of my published written work is in Danish, but I will hopefully soon be able to showcase more of my written work in English

I am developing my skills in video creation. I have previously created video content for the Evakuer Moria and Skisport.dk
Blog on Cyber Warfare
I got the the assignment to create a blog on a chosen subject as part of a class on ‘digital warfare’. I chose to focus on cyber warfare, and sought to do so in a manner, that would make it as comprehendible as possible. My work on the blog got me a distinction.
I volunteered for the student radio in Aarhus Planet Mundus in 2019. I partook in the podcasts as well as edited a few episodes of both Slow News and EuroAlike.
I also managed the Website.
I collaborated with the Danish housing company KAB in creating a blog for young people seeking housing in Copenhagen. I created it from scratch along with a co-worker and with guidance from KAB’s communication department.
I have created the website for a small market taking place in Tisvildeleje, Denmark in August called Kildemarkedet.
The photos on the website are also taken by me.
