I am a Finnish photographer / marketing student living in Los Angeles. I love capturing moments, telling stories and making people smile. Before moving to LA in 2009, I spent few years watching football (the real, European kind) and eating gelato in Milan, Italy. 2017 has been a weird year for me, as I haven't really done much photography related stuff, but I'm slowly moving back behind the lens and hopefully sharing some new images and projects soon!
10 things I'm still obsessed with: Smart Cars, Pepsi Max, YouTube, Unicorns, Wi-Fi on Transatlantic Flights, Andy Cohen's audiobooks, Swedish Chocolate, Instagram Stalking (you can stalk me @moimarke), Polaroids and Peter Pan.
