Graduation & Celebrations

Especially during the spring months and into early summer, there is usually a lot of celebration of graduations, students, confirmations and more. Most people want to have a photo for remembering their special day. Here’s a selection of the many graduating students and more that I’ve had the honor to photograph over the years.

Sussis Tårtor

Sussis tårtor (Sussi’s Cakes) is a small one-woman company based in Vaasa, Finland. The company creates custom cake design for any occasion with personalised decor for every customer.

During 2022-2023 I’ve been working with Sussi to freshen up the company’s branding as well as developing a website that is to be released for the summer of 2023.

Tim Worthington Financial Advisor

Tim Worthington is a fictional character made up for the sake of a course where the goal was to create a complete brand design for a (fictional) company.

Medical Beauty Station Websites

Medical Beauty Station is a beauty salon located in Kauniainen, the neighbouring city to Helsinki, Finland. During the winter 2022-2023 me together with a team from Storm Photography gave their websites a total overhaul and rebuilt their page from the ground up. The biggest focus was to make sure the backend was as simple as possible to use, since the owners of the salon are not overly keen in technology. We also put a lot of effort into making the site visually pleasing and produced a lot of the visual material ourselves.

The site is built in WordPress in a heavily modified version of the Astra theme. A custom-post-type system was built to ease the process of inserting and sorting info about the treatments they offer.

Studio Photography

Sometimes all you need is a minimalistic, simple yet good looking portrait. Maybe it’s of your company’s employees or for your CV – a simple, professionaly taken portrait can always be good to have!

Vasa Nation CXV

Vasa Nation is a student-union for students in Helsinki coming from the areas around the city of Vaasa, also known as the Ostrobothnia region in Finland. Every year the Union calls their members to a festive celebration in order to celebrate together. This year I’m serving as the Photographer on all the union’s events, and so I got the opportunity to photograph this beautiful night of celebrations.

Alive

Alive was a musical show performed by the women’s choir Nonen Vocals based in Vaasa. This concert was my first concert-gig as a photographer and an immense learning experience. I got to participate during both shows as well as rehearsals, giving me access to angles and images that wouldn’t have been possible had there been an audience in the room.

In a Pickle

In a pickle is part of the business where I do my internahip spring and summer 2022. In a pickle is a recepie site connected to StormArts. During my time interning at StormArts I’ve had the opportunity to assist on photoshoots, edit video material for the company’s various clients, such as the Finnish meat producer Snellman amongst others. I’ve also had the opportunity to direct and shoot some of in a pickle’s material myself, ant the result is shown here.

Snellman

As a part of my internship at stormarts.fi I helped in creating and editing content for their clients and client’s clients. Thanks to this, I’ve gotten to edit multiple instagram reels for the big Finnish meat producer Snellman. The reels were produced for use on satokausikalenteri’s social media but also got posted on Snellmans own socials.

Delights By Neela

Delights By Neela is a small, single person company that makes various vegan goodies and treats, such as pralines, cakes, fudges and much more.
The website delightsbyneela.fi is the first real website I’ve developed for a client. The page is built on WordPress but all visual design is done completely from scratch. Thanks to the shop-plugin WooCommerce, together with some tweaks to said plugin, we were able to implement a way of showcasing the various products without the ability to order and shop the products online, per the clients request. This function is easy to add back in in the future if the needs were to change down the road.
The focus has been on ease of use while keeping a clean and simple visual style. The instagram feed and the four most recent products gives an extra dynamic touch to the otherwise quite static start page .

Finnish hockey celebrations

When Finland won the Word championship in Hockey I grabbed my camera and jumped on the bus towards the centre of Helsinki to take part in the celebrations and capture this historical moment on camera. And so I did. Here is a choose of the best of the 800 pictures I took that night!

The Squirrel Collection

A you might’ve seen I have happened to shoot a fair bit of squirrel photos. This is thanks to squirrels being very friendly and easy to spot in the area where I live. Here’s my all time favorite pictures of these furry, adorable animals.
