I am a Rovaniemi-based photographer working in the field of photojournalism.
In photography, the opportunity to stop time – to capture a moment and hold on to it – has always intrigued me. After graduating from High School, it was clear to me that I would work in a visual field. A job at a daily newspaper was a dream come true. My career as a photojournalist took a hiatus when I moved to Lapland in 1986 to work in the travel industry with my husband. After 15 years there, I knew I had to return to my first career love – photographic art.
Besides having photography as my job I also have it as a passion. I bring my soul landscape visible with Intentional Camera Movement using northern sceneries of Finland as my backdrop. I focus on themes related to the seasons of Lapland, and the sensitivity of nature. I am widely published in various Finnish magazines and newspapers. I have had several solo and group exhibitions in Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. I am a member of the quarterly ICMPhotomag E-mag publishing team, a co-founder of ICMPhotomag Network Community and ICM Photo Academy, and I teach courses on ICM photography, both in person and on-line.
My studio Villa Vinkkeli also has an art gallery, in wich I organize art events.
I am a member of The Finnish Association of Photojournalists and The Finnish Association of Journalists.

My assistant Laura masters digital imagery and quickly prepares RAW-images for customers. She also understands well the requirements for printing technology and web publishing. Laura is a graphic designer by training, but she is also a photographer which makes it possible for both of us to be available for larger or special events. Laura can also shoot and edit videos.
Laura runs also her own illustration business and her hobbies include art, yoga, and a video game. See Laura's illustrations on her website.
