I was originally inspired by photography during my exchange year in America. It was love at first sight.
As a photographer, I’ve seen it all. I started as a professional photographer 30 years ago when people were still shooting on 6x7cm negatives and producing black and white images in the darkroom. In the early 2000’s there was a panic when digital cameras came along and even that was overcome…
I have been studying photography alongside my work for 7 years. One of the highlights of my career has been to be awarded the Finnish Professional Photographers Association’s Master of Photography title, which is awarded for a series of 20 photographs. A total of 44 have been awarded since 1979.
I gave up my studio in Tampere, Finland in 2022 and currently live part of the year in Finland and part in Torrevieja, Spain. I enjoy the variety of not being tied to a place and being able to take photographs exactly where I am. Now that my two children are living on their own.
I have been teaching photography to private students since 2020. It’s amazing to see how they are developing in photography.
Lately I’ve also been making videos, it’s really fun. Coming from a photographer background, it’s been great to see how much more information you can add to a video compared to a photo. Learning new things is the best!

30 vuotta yrittäjänä tuli täyteen huhtikuussa. Tarkkaa päivää en osaa sanoa / viitsi selvittää. Matkaan on mahtunut yrittäjyyttä sekä toiminimellä ja osakeyhtiöllä.
Päivääkään en vaihtaisi pois!

Joskus työstä palkkaa on tullut enemmän ja joskus vähemmän. Mutta mahtavinta on se, että olen aina siis aina tehnyt työtä jota rakastan. Koskaan ei ole ollut päivää, etten haluaisi lähteä töihin eikä toisaalta myöskään hetkeä jolloin haluaisin välttämättä lähteä töistä kotiin.

Lopputuloksena elämäni on mennyt kuin siivillä, ei tylsiä hetkiä.
KIITOS kaikille asiakkailleni vuosien varrella, että olette mahdollistaneet minulle tämän ❤️❤️❤️

Kuva on tämän hetken suosikki maisemastani 😍

Vuosia olen matkustaessani kuvannut itselleni kuvapankkia omiin tarkoituksiini. Ovia, ikkunoita, perhosia, kukkia, rakennuksia yms. Ei tarvitse enää....
Puistomaisema kuva on kuvattu puistossa mutta toiseen kuvaan, jossa taustalla vanha ovi on tausta tehty tekoälyllä.
Vain mielikuvitus on rajana mitä tekoälyllä saa aikaan.
Aika lapsen kengissä on oma osaamiseni tekoälyn kanssa vielä mutta matka jatkuu....
Hyvää viikonloppua!

For years, when I have been travelling, I have made a photo bank for myself for my own purposes. Doors, windows, butterflies, flowers, buildings, etc. No need anymore....
The park landscape photo was taken in a park but the other photo with the old door in the background has the background done with AI.
Only your imagination is the limit to what you can do with AI.
I'm still in my infancy with AI but the journey continues....
Have a great weekend!

A few months ago, I took a group photo of a coffee break at Pareto Software.
The picture was taken in four parts, so that I could light each group separately and also because it was easier to control the expressions when not everyone was in the picture at the same time.
I wanted to show the picture "already" because this company has already grown by several people and moved to larger premises. Well done Pareto💪

I am currently studying the use of artificial intelligence in image production. Very interesting! It gives the photographer a lot of new possibilities in producing photographs. I'm not so much interested in producing images with full prompts, but in the possibility to add people to a group photo afterwards.
Of course, you could do that in Photoshop up to now, but now you have a completely different tool in your hands. Better!
For example, you can teach the AI what a person looks like and then produce images in which the person is placed anywhere and in any position, and you can even tell the program what the position is in the image.
In other words, I want to use the possibilities of AI as a tool, not as an image maker.
There are no leisure problems, that's how challenging it is to learn how to do this.
Can you think of situations that are otherwise impossible but possible with AI?

I wish I started dancing 20-30 years ago…

I learnt more in an hour than I would have done in dozens of hours of self-study. It was especially rewarding to get feedback from a professional on the photos I took. We looked at angles, framing, exposure, toning and image processing adjustments. In addition to great tips and advice, I had several moments of insight - yes, that's how it's done! In addition to learning, the sparring session was a lot of fun. It was a really good feeling, I will go again in the future. It's hard to imagine a better and faster way to learn photography.

I had the pleasure of working with Liisa on my family photoshoot and I couldn't be happier with the results. She captured beautiful and natural moments that truly reflected my personalities. Her attention to detail and creativity shone through in each shot. I highly recommend Liisa to anyone looking for a talented and professional photographer.
