I love to take photographs. I also love doing design work, and believe they complete one another.


It all started in early 90´s with Nikon F-801, when working part-time in photo shop I got to develop my films for free. With a degree in visual arts, years went by As an Art Director in design company. Afterwards, I owned a half of a small design agency for over 10 years, sold it and now I am a freelancer.

My clients include ad agencies, startups and large companies like YIT (almost all of their commercial photography for the last five years done by me), Fiskars (photography for gardening and axes), Tikkurila (annual report photography concept and art direction for years) and many more. Most of my work is business to business but work for all types of client. They say I am very flexible and hard-working.

My style of photography is more documentary but I have done serious studio works as well. I base my designs in good photography and keep it minimal. 

As a person I am a hardworking middle-aged guy would like to travel as much as possible but due the knowledge of the climate change I have started to invest more in travel quality more than quantity. I also try to stay fit and do sports. Biking, muay thai & gym makes me happy. Ok not the gym but I guess that´s inevitable.

There are not that many photos of me and when I find one I look more or less distressed like the one in the background.

I have loved this job for over 20 years and still do. I am sure you’ll love the results as well!
