Hello! I'm Kimmo, a portrait photographer living in the beautiful city of Helsinki, Finland.
For all my life, I've been curious about all things visual - photography, design, and arts. Growing up in the countryside, nature will always be close to my heart. I love being in the wilderness, and very often my photoshoots take place in the nature too.
The best part about photography for me is sharing experiences. Being there to capture those magical moments as photos which take the viewer back after tens of years have passed is what photography is all about. There is nothing more beautiful than heartfelt moments and people sharing them together.
Stylistically, I'm a fan of cinematic, beautiful shots with soft elegant use of light and strong narrative. People say my work has a painterly feel about it.
My work has been published among others in Independent, The Mirror, Daily Mail, Daily Express, Wired, Daily Telegraph, Sony, and Rediff.
In my work, I rely on professional equipment only. I shoot with Canon EOS 5D MK IV camera and various lenses (Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L II and Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art are my favourites). For flashes, I use Godox AD600 Pro studio-grade strobes.
