01. Dog and her owner enjoying the wintery Porvoo at Näsinmäki woodland park.

In the last 6 weeks I've spend almost half the time in Porvoo wondering daily on the streets and capturing the beauty of everyday life and moments. I have met so many kind, supportive and amazing people here. People who made these photos possible. I want to thank you all from my heart!

My dream is to continue living in Porvoo and doing documentary photography work as a freelancer and get funding to start a photobank with photos that can be freely used in favor of the extraordinary city of Porvoo and its habitants.

Looking for collaboration, rental house, work, photo ideas, etc.

Feel free to message me
