I am a Finnish photographer currently working as a freelance photographer serving clients in both Germany and Finland. This includes my role as a stringer for Helsingin Sanomat, Finland’s leading national newspaper, where I capture current events, stories, interviews, and news about Germany.

In addition to photography, I also work in videography and video editing, producing visual narratives through moving images.

I hold a degree in Contemporary Photographic Arts from The University for the Creative Arts in the UK.

Much of my work today involves capturing the artistry and dedication of craftsmen and women, including bespoke tailors, shoemakers, weavers, and other skilled artisans.

After my studies, my professional photography journey began with over four years as a product photographer and retoucher at Zalando, followed by a two-year tenure at Carhartt Work in Progress.

Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege of collaborating with many renowned brands, companies, and institutions (see list below).

My work has been featured in publications such as Helsingin Sanomat, Architectural Digest (Germany), Kodin Kuvalehti, Deko-Lehti, Antiikki & Design, Journalistilehti, and others.

I co-founded and contribute photos to the online magazine ‘Der Feine Herr,’ specializing in bespoke menswear.
