About Me

Active camera user for 13 years and born in 1982. Since 2011 been concentrating mainly to event and model photography. I carry camera with me, as there are always something interesting to capture.

What I expect and what are my ways to work:

For various reasons I have changed my art creating preferences.

I'm punctual and willing to know the opinions and also ideas from the model side. For me working is not like "taking the pic number 453, being quiet 2 hours and then Ok." I usually don't give instructions as I rely on models own skills, but willing to give advice if asked or needed. As I have completed my mandatory Military Service I can operate outside in extreme conditions (from +40 to -40 degrees Celsius) so smile even Ice and Snow are no Ghosts!

My themes vary from "Gothic to Glamour". I'm used to take pics in various situations, events and happenings, where the photoshoot cannot be planned beforehand. To find out an extra idea or a way to make a photo interesting from instant changes of backgrounds etc. is the best reward during a shoot!

Currently I'm interested of shoots and themes that are settled from 1960's to 1990's. Indoor... daily life, ups and downs. Not everything has to be polished or be in color mode.

Equipment: Canon EOS 7D, 5D Mk II and 5Ds
Lenses: EF 16-35mm F2,8 II L USM, EF 40mm F 2,8 STM "pancake", EF 50mm F 1,4 USM, EF 50-200 4 L IS USM

Flashes: 3 x On Camera mounted + Elinchrom D-lite x 2 (Studio)

I can speak and write also in Swedish (I'm fully bilingual), English is daily used by me at work and my German language skills are kind of satisfactory, so smile no problems using that either.

I have recently received many mail from travellers. Thank you for your information. BUT Following things affect to rejection of the photoshoot.

1. I need to know the place where the photoshoot is arranged - or the place where to meet.

Information that "I will be in (the name of the city) maybe then and then", does not give any confirmed information of the arrival.

2. Lack of described ideas of your photoshoot and presentations - What, Where, How and When, (Like in the NAVY, "Attention on Deck!" -> You salute, present yourself and tell what you have in mind).

3. I'm Bilingual. I speak fluent Finnish and Swedish, Good English and Satisfactory German. So Please write your mail clearly by using (one of) these languages. Thank You.

4. Timing and schedule - I am quick performer with the Camera. So 2 hrs is the maximum time that I mostly need for photoshoots. Previous experience has proved that a simple Studio shoot with 3 different outfits for the model + outfit change & photography takes totally 1,5 hours. This might not be the ideal timing for some models, and I do understand that it is not meant to be a quiet and very fast photoshoot, but shouldn't all work be done effectively? In average a 2 hr photoshoot has already ended after 1hr 45 min, so... Coffeeholics have had a possibility to get a cup of refreshments! smile

5. Simply asking for Phone or Whatsapp numbers and a note that "I'd like to have a photoshoot" isn't going to work. I communicate with foreigners mostly with this site at first, unless I have some background information or have had a photoshoot with the model previously.

6. If I spend time describing my ideas and possible locations, I expect an answer to them by 1,5 weeks. Otherwise the opportunity is missed.
