I am from Jakobstad (Pietarsaari) wich is located on the west coast of Finland. I started photgraphing almost 30 years ago when I bought my first SLR, a Pentax MV-1. From year 2000 I had an eight year long break when I took no pictures at all untill fall 2008 when I bought my first digital camera. Then my photo interest awaken again and since then I have been photographing as much as possible. I have been participating in lots of international and national exhebitions and have received the photo titles Exellence FIAP (EFIAP), PSA 3 Star Photographer (Photographic society of America) and SKsLSM (Grand Master of Finnish Camera clubs). Nowadays I just like to show my pictures here on 500px. I mostly take lanscape and nature pictures but I also like to experiment with diffret technicues.
