I'm a street and portrait photographer from Helsinki. I’ve been interested in photography since childhood and have thus practised it for over 30 years. As a freelance photographer I’ve been working since 2015. Being an telecoms/IT engineer, my background is in global telco business, mainly in international marketing and sales. but I left it behind in 2010 to look after my wife during her last years while she was suffering from an incurable illness. After she passed away in 2012, I started a new life. The loss of my wife taught me to appreciate health and love life in general. I learned how to enjoy the small things in everyday living. I also became much more aware of and sensitive to everything around me. I decided to focus on things I'm passionate about, like Tai Chi Chuan and photography. That is the path I'm on now and I'm enjoying it every day.
