Versatile photojournalist in Finnish Lapland. Still photography and text.

I am a photojournalist living in western part of Finnish Lapland. I am available for assignments in the whole Lapland and the Barents Region.

As a photojournalist I am versatile, trustworthy and fast. I also write news stories and feature journalism about outdoor subjects, so I can relate to the demands of combining photos and words.

I do everything from big reportage to single portraits. Documentary style is most natural to me, but I will also do more designed photography.

I enjoy meeting all kinds of people here in the north. The harsh environment in Lapland is where I thrive: cold and dark winter is interesting to work with.

I have studied journalism and photojournalism in the University of Tampere.
