Where are you originally from?
I'm originally from Helsinki, Finland and I've just recently moved back (Summer 2020) home after living 2 years in London, UK. I've also lived in Berlin, Amsterdam and Stockholm, and as a child with my family in Paris :)
In Instagram and Youtube your job?
Yes, since the beginning of 2019 I'm a full time content creator and make my living via sponsorships on Instagram and Youtube, and also via Google Adsense on Youtube. I also sometimes create content for brands to use on their platforms without posting on my channels.
Where do you get your inspiration?
This will depend, but the biggest source of inspiration is still looking at photos and visual art.
I will usually get very inspired by a specific color combination, some little detail in my surrounding like the delicate lace trimming on my dress or the way the croissant crumbles on the table form a heart shaped pattern.
Small things like that is where it usually starts for me.
How do you get your photo ideas?
I think it's all about keeping your eyes open and really look at your surroundings.
To combine things in unexpected ways, look for new connections and pay close attention to what sparks your excitement and imagination aesthetically.
Also, usually ideas will come to me when I'm making stuff, so the best way I keep myself inspired is by trying to create consistently.
What gear do you use?
I shoot my photos with a Sony Alpha 7R III Camera with a Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM lens.
And sometimes. I'll just use my iPhone XR to snap photos to get more of a raw feel which I sometimes think can work really well.
For portraits I think having a good camera is really helpful, but I started out just taking photos with my phone and the most important thing to me is still the idea, the vision and the way you compose your shot.
