People love showing off their country for your photographs
Italians, and especially the Sicilians, are people you cannot ignore. You have to engage with them. They have a charming combination of not really caring what you think of them but at the same time being very proud.
Use a dominant hue to tie photos together
All memories, all images, all dreams of Lisbon by night have one thing in common: they are totally immersed in yellow. Drenched in it.
Inside the pub that, in its way, changed fiction forever
The pubs in Dublin are special. The interiors are great, the light is often fantastic, and some of the customers fit in so well it feels like they are straight from a casting agency.
Photos are a record of the friends you make
The back streets of Venice are full of pleasant surprises. This is where the Venetians live and it is an entirely different world to that of the Piazza San Marco or the Canal Grande.
Street photography is the best way to portray a city
Street photography is the best way to understand and portray a city like St Petersburg and is certainly one of the things that I enjoy doing most; seeing what’s happening, what people are up to, how they live, and then trying to capture those moments.
Patience and self confidence are the best weapons in street photography
The best way to know any city is by heading out with the sole purpose of photographing it and its people. It makes you extra motivated to look.
Framing can give great meaning to otherwise uninteresting objects
When I saw this advertisement on a building close to Checkpoint Charlie, I thought it was too good to be true.
In photography, places are interesting people as well
The magnificent Prague Estates Theatre feels like the warm living room of a thoroughbred Bohemian town. Prague, the city of Kafka, has a lot of charm but also a colorful history and I wanted to capture some of that here.
How joining the fun will make you a better photographer
Photographing landscapes and trees in a country where nature is as ubiquitous as in Finland is fantastic. But I prefer people, because people offer many more characters and rare moments that are different and unique.
Enjoy history, but look out for the new
Bath is a very old town dating back to Roman times. The buildings are beautiful and the baths are amazing. For all the right reasons, it is a popular tourist destination.
