Photoshoot

Tanja & Johannes

This is what we waited for whole year. This was the first reason why I decided to come to Finland for this summer. What an good and beautiful reason it was.

I arrived week before the wedding. During this week we had time to see locations and made last moment strategy and plan. 

Finnish weather can be quite unpredictable. Not often everything goes as planned, even you have thought about every single little thing. But how boring it would be if it did. No space for unexpected surprises!

Rain brings luck, right. This day gave Tanja and Johannes a heaps of that and I wish them lots of love and happiness in the future. I saw that sparkle and joy in their eyes on that day, so I won't be worried about lack of those things at all xxx

Homesickness

This photoshoot with stunning Sherry feels like it happened just few weeks ago. Actually these photos were taken just day before I was getting on the plane and my time in Finland was about to start. Which was ummmm... almost three months ago! Today I'm able to say, I return home in six weeks. So next month! Summer in Finland has gone way too fast. Time flies when you have fun, right.

Despite how much fun I have had here, these photos reminds me about Perth and how much I'm missing the city already. But I have to put those homesick thoughts away, I'm not quite ready to leave Finland yet. Still have few exciting jobs to do and big bunch of important people to spend time with.

Looking forward to go back and work with all inspiring people, as lovely and bright as Sherry. We had very good session in the morning light, right in middle of Perth CBD. Air was a bit crispy, winter was just behind the corner. Sherry was tough, she handled the cold extremely well! I'm glad we made this shoot happen before I flew out and she started her exciting journey. 

A False History - A.K. Alliss

Best thing in this job is to meet and get to know amazing people.

This photoshoot was for an author, who recently published his first novel. It was so exciting and interesting to be a part of this process. He has done huge job to put his story on paper, releaving it to the public and putting himself out there. My job was capture this talented man behind the novel in honest and genuine way. Without reading the book before hand, location, bang in middle of the city, turned out to support the story and atmosphere of the book.

I have always admire people who know how to write. I never been blessed with that skill, or just been too lazy to improve myself. But every now and then it's good to drag yourself away from your comfort zone. It can be surprising and eye-opening experience.

So excited for this man and can't wait to see how his career as an author continues. I wish him best of luck.
