BASICS

I am a freelance photographer from Tampere and a long time film buff. I am interested in working in the industry, but unfortunately most of the productions are filmed in Helsinki and I have no desire to move there. In my spare time I read, write and go to more gigs that I probably should. I have no time to become a bodybuilder, but I do keep myself in shape at the gym and running (mostly) in circles. My favourite films include The Thing, What's eating Gilpert Grape and Rocky. Education: Bachelor of Culture and Arts, Media Management (Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences) 2016

WORK EXPERIENCE

I have five years worth of experience in event and music photography. I've also produced/shot/edited a variety of commercial and journalistic videos for web. I do possess plenty of experience in lighting department and grip as well. I did my thesis on live streaming technology and on top of that I have worked as a production assistant, journalist and a led screen manager. I've worked in some of the largest concert productions at Yle including UMK 16-18, Rauhassa concert series (2015) and Tangomarkkinat (2015).
