Images for a campaign that celebrates 100 years of San Diego Zoo.

Born in Finland I became interested in photography at an early age of 7. By 21 I had a studio in my hometown of Tampere, Finland and soon after in London UK. A career as a commercial photographer became the reality that would eventually lead me to Los Angeles. My photography ranges from pure painterly to complex technical composites. I enjoy working and traveling for both American and European clients and my love of photography also inspires a constant stream of personal work that is largely inspired by the values I hold dear: joy of life, peace of mind and a sense of humor.
