I had the pleasure and privilege to photograph the most beautiful litter of Bernese Mountain Dogs in the beginning of this year. Twice. During the first photo shoot the puppies (4 boys and 3 girls) were 4,5 weeks old and while shooting them the second time they were 3 weeks older. They had in fact grown so much that I could only fit one puppy at a time inside the box that easily fitted two a few weeks earlier. As you can see from the chosen photos the models were surprisingly co-operative and didn't really mind me photographing them. One of them even fell asleep on the scale!

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.
