Learning new stuff with dream team

Usually I try to learn new stuff when I'm planning my own projects. This time I studied photographing moody light with flashes and science of colors in editing.

I couldn't do this without my deamteam: model @tiinawinter and MUAH @hiusbylaura / Laura Hänninen.

Graffiti - Blink and you'll miss it

I was doing some night portraits downtown just for fun with a friend, and found this door on a derelict building had been covered in colorful graffiti that was above par when it comes to local rattle can art. My city often covers any graffiti on city property - good or not - in this terrible concrete grey paint. Even 100+ year-old stone walls...

This was done at Canyon Overlook trail which is a short 20 min walk from the car to one of the most beautiful overlooks in Zion. Just wanted to share this to here what the community...

Renaissance Self-Portrait

As I get into my busy season to work and deliver photos to clients, it sometimes feels draining. I try to take some creative "breaks" and work on personal projects in order to keep fresh. This is a self-portrait I've done exactly for that reason. I was at a costume store not long ago and fell in love with this one and thought it would be a...

High School Photo

The local high school gives me free rein to shoot whatever I want. This image was widely used in brochures, billboards and social media. They loved it but what do you think?
