ASHEVILLE HEADSHOT & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

A photograph can express something that is beyond words. It is an existential inquiry into perception; a way to explore the nature of what we call reality. The gamut of emotion that can be expressed in an image is simply mind blowing. This is what makes me wanna pick up my camera, over and over again. In addition to all this philosophical stuff, I also truly enjoy helping people see their own beauty and light.

I was born and raised in Finland, where I started my photography journey nearly 15 years ago working with film. After many detours in various countries, I moved to the U.S in 2003 with one suitcase and an old Olympus film camera, and ended up in southern California, where I began photographing actors and models for the Hollywood movie and fashion industry. To make a long story short, ten years later I arrived in Asheville, NC, where I now specialize in portrait and headshot photography.

I have worked with people from many walks of life – shamans, rock stars, politicians, yogis, actors, monks, holy men – and you name it. Among other things, photography has taught me how to see beyond light and shadow, and how to appreciate each moment a little longer.
