Yesterday morning we took a very successful photowalk! I had contacted Riim via the local models and photographers Facebook page a few months ago, but I didn't really have the chance to meet her until yesterday. To tell the truth — after a few disappointing encounters — I wasn't very keen on meeting anyone who I didn't knew already, but with Riim the connection was effortless. I'm very happy with the way the photographs turned out and even happier about having met such a lovely person!

Just a few photographs from a Sunday walk in Nuuksio — nothing really thought through — but the light was so special that I wanted to share these here. After a long dark winter, all I need is to be outside to feel the sun on my face! Today we have turned the clocks one hour forward, the days will get longer and there will be more photowalks.

Even though it has been snowing on and off this year, it finally seems the winter may be coming to an end! The first signs of spring are already here: the birds are singing, the sun is warm and the snow is melting. Every time the light comes back to Helsinki I feel the urge to spend more time outdoors: nothing makes me happier than a photowalk. I hope this spring will give me plenty of chances to be out with my camera!

Yesterday evening I took a lovely walk with my friend Sofia and little Stella. It was my first photowalk with a dog and its human, but I'm quite happy with the way these photographs turned out and I hope to take more! Many thanks to Sofia and Stella for spending a sunny and yet extremely cold evening with me in Uunisaari!

I decided to try something I had never done before — taking a photowalk with a couple. Naturally I asked Alina and Mike, since we have a good connection and I feel very comfortable with them. Yesterday afternoon we took a ferry to Suomenlinna and the weather was on our side: the light of the setting sun was incredible. I'm very happy with these photographs and I'm hoping to capture more love stories in the future!

Despite the rainy weather, earlier today I took a lovely photowalk with Riikka. I met her about a month ago through a common friend and immediately liked her style; I'm so glad she was able to join me on a photowalk before leaving for her internship in Vienna.

It started to rain shortly after we reached Vanhakaupunki and the boardwalk to Lammassaari was completely covered in ice — it's a miracle we didn't fall. Though I really had fun with Riikka and I am happy with the way the photographs turned out!

January is coming to an end and I have not been outside as much as I wanted to, but I have spent some quality time with friends — tea, dinners, movies — and turned 30 years old! Also, the days have finally started to get longer and the light has finally come back to this side of the world: the worst part of winter is behind us now!

On Sunday morning I took a walk with Jacopo to enjoy the warm and sunny weather (+3°C) and I got to be on the other side of the camera. Below are a few of my favourite photographs: I hope you will enjoy them as much as I do!

Happy New Year! 2017 in Finland has started with freezing temperatures (-20°C) and snow falls, but being today a little warmer (-2°C) I could finally enjoy some time outdoors with my camera. I took the first photowalk of the year with Alexandra around snowy Seurasaari — we even met a friendly squirrel!

As far as this blog goes, in 2017 I would like to continue working on the photowalk concept to capture moments more spontaneously and tell stories. I'm also hoping to travel and tell stories of my trips. Many thanks to old and new readers alike!
