I have specialized in the photography of built environments. I produce exterior and interior architectural photographs of various buildings and spaces. My clients include architects, construction companies, real estate developers, hotels, restaurants, cafés and other companies that need aesthetically pleasing photographs of their spaces. I also produce architectural photographs of high-end properties for individual clients.
I photograph by commission throughout Finland and sell licences to my photos.
I photograph public buildings, such as historical and cultural buildings, sports arenas, universities and colleges. The photos can feature exterior façades or interior architecture. If needed, photos can also include the public as they use the space.
COMMERCIAL SITES AND SPACES
I take photographs of various commercial sites, such as shopping centers, corporate buildings and office spaces. The photos can feature only the architecture of the exterior and interior spaces or they can include people who use the functional space.
HOTELS, RESTAURANTS AND CAFES
I produce photographic material for hotels, holiday resorts, restaurants and cafés. The photos can feature the building’s public façade or interior architecture, with or without people.
RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION AND HIGH-END PROPERTY
I produce both exterior and interior architectural photographs of new residential construction and high-end properties. The site can be a newly built and unfurnished unit of townhouses or a fully-furnished luxury home.
MY PHOTOGRAPHIC PHILOSOPHY
I begin each project with a thorough assessment of the location. It takes time to find the right angles to best portray the setting and features. If the site is to be captured with interesting lighting, such as during sunset or evening twilight with full interior lighting, suitable times are agreed with the client. The style and focal point of the photographs are always agreed together with the client to ensure the end product is fit for purpose.
I prefer to use a lot of natural light in my photographs. If needed, I also use additional lighting in my photographs to feature interesting details, shapes, materials and colours. On occasion, I use multiple exposure techniques to achieve the best possible end result.
Each photograph is edited for brightness, contrast and colour. Distracting elements that detract from the main features of the photograph can be edited out of the photograph in consultation with the client. Here are some examples of how a professionally taken and edited photograph sets itself apart from other normal photographs.
This photo features the shape of the building and the materials used in its construction through the use of multiple exposure techniques. I wanted to ensure the photo captured the effect of light on the steel lattice of a round building. The photo has a slight blue hue to convey the feeling of a cold winter day. The person in the photo brings it life and helps to convey the scale of the building.

The objects in this space were rearranged and some were removed completely. The removal of clutter from the space before taking the photo helps to feature the main architectural and interior design elements. I used additional lighting to feature interesting details, shapes, materials and colours. Necessary colour editing were also made to freshen up the colour tones.

This space was challenging to photograph because it was almost completely dark. The room had various bright screens with colourful images. The purpose of the space is to showcase innovations so I wanted to achieve clear and precise display screens. With single click of the shutter it is virtually impossible to capture clear and precise screens while also featuring the surrounding space. I used additional lighting to bring out elements of the interior design. Slide the bar in the middle of the photo to see the comparison between a high-quality professional photograph and a normal one.
