I am a Helsinki, Finland based photographer, Visual Content Creator, vlogger, blogger and a writer. I am also an OM SYSTEM Ambassador. I started my photographic career in the late 80s and have been a free-lancer since 1994.
My love of photography started back in the 70s when I bought my first SLR, a Cosina CS-1. I used my first ever paycheck from a summerjob to buy that camera. I ruined my nice hobby and became a Pro in the late 80s. Of course thats not all true. I still have photography as a hobby. I think its important to take pictures all the time. I also use my mobile phone as a camera a lot. It helps to see the world around you by carrying a camera all the time. I mostly post my mobile photos on Instagram.
In 2008 I started to learn more about videography and now its a big part of my services.
I have also written several books about photography. My first book was Hyvä Kuva in 2004. Its in Finnish and the title means a Good Picture. Its a book for people who are "forced" to take photos for their employer even though they are not photographers. Main target is the people that work in the communications departments.
Better Images books were written with Jukka Kolari. Better Images books have been translated in to many languages, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese, English and all the Nordic languages.
I have been blogging (in Finnish) over 10 years. In the fall of 2018 I started to making videos on YouTube. Its a about Photography, Olympus and OM SYSTEM gear. It covers a wide range of things about photography.
In 2014 I switched to Olympus cameras. I was an Olympus Visionary from 2017 to 2020. Thanks for visiting my Ambassador-page. I hope you enjoyed my photos.
