This is a composite photograph of our young Bernese Mountain Dog growing up from a 8-week-old puppy to a one-year-old (so-called) adult. I did take photos every 4 weeks but the final composite photo looked so much better with fewer photos and with a more noticeable difference between each step so I opted to use photos taken roughly every two months. From now on I will be updating this photo every 6 months - hopefully - for years to come.

I'm a freelance photographer based in Pirkanmaa, Finland. I photograph pretty much anything but I'm passionate about shooting pets and performing arts. I also enjoy diving into the fascinating world of insects and other tiny objects (ie. macro photography). I bought my first compact system camera in 2010 and haven't looked back ever since. Photographing is more than just a hobby to me - it's a way of life.
