I’m 15 years old (born 2003) school student & nature photographer living in small town Kauniainen, near Helsinki, Finland.

As long as I can remember I have been interested in nature and visited different nature locations with my family. I started to take nature photographs in 2010. In 2011 I was for the first time in a photohide photographing wolverines and bears. January 2012 my father taught me how to use a professional camera in manual mode and large lenses to photograph animals. Since that I have been very excited and actively photographing with my father in different places and gotten a lot of memorable moments in nature. I use my camera in full manual mode and take pictures in RAW format and use Adobe Lightroom software for editing.

My first ever own photograph exhibition was set up in May 2013 and was in my home towns Town Hall exhibition area.

I have participated and also awarded in many photography competitions, including: Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Memorial Maria Louisa, Festival de l’Oiseau de la Nature, Asferico, Oasis Photo Contest, IFWP, GDT European Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Siena International Photo Awards, Narava, Milvus Nature Photography Contest, MontPhoto and Vuoden luontokuva in Finland.
