About

I’m an Espoo based bilingual primary school teacher and an art teacher originally from Kuopio, Finland. I have a passion for photography and my future dreams are to travel around the world with my camera and work as a photography teacher. I’m easy to get along and I also like kids and animals. I have high work ethics.

Right now I shoot mostly portraits, but also events like concerts and weddings. What it comes to topics, I’m fascinated by life in general, people and capturing the moment, the atmosphere. My goal is not to create beauty, but find the beauty, which already is.

I have always shot mainly digital, but I’m more and more interested in the nature of light and analogical photography.
