Contact / about


I am a professional photographer based in Helsinki but working globally. I am very social and relaxed person, who is used to working under pressure. My style is a mixture of portrait & documentary photography. I like visiting different places and meeting new people to capture into my photos. I am specialized taking pictures in Brazil during more than 15 trips but also travelled in many other countries. I also speak Portuguese fluently.

I have started my company in 2000 and have had several assignments for magazines, newspapers, advertising agencies, record companies and PR offices. I have held 12 exhibitions of my own and won eight prizes in Advertising Photography Awards in Finland.

I also have a strong passion for music. I am a dj and president of the Funky Amigos association, who does multicultural events such as Elephantasy and Funky Elephant festival. My mother worked as a photographer and father as  a dj & show business entrepreneur,  so eventually I got my inspiration from both parents.

I am constantly looking for new assignments, so feel free to contact me.
