I have been working on all kinds of creative media all my life, and have more than 20 years of work experience in video, photography
, multimedia, you name it. I have done group and one-on-one trainings as part of my previous jobs, and I really enjoy passing onto others what I've learned. I have a BA in Photography from the Turku Art Academy in Finland, and MFA in New Media/Media Art from the University of Art and Design, Helsinki, Finland (currently known as Aalto University). As a part of my studies I was a visiting scholar at UCLA in the Media Arts department.
I can teach all the basics on almost anything you want to know about video production
, including shooting video and photos (including good composition, lighting, cameras, especially DSLR cameras), editing
video in Final Cut or Premiere, editing photos in Photoshop
, creating motion graphics and animation in After Effects, interview techniques, script writing
, production skills, and much more, just ask. Especially if you are interested in becoming a "one man or one woman band" who can create a complete production on their own on a shoe string budget but with Cadillac quality, that's my specialty!
I have worked as a free lancer, running my own business
, as well as a full time employee doing video and multimedia and photography productions. I also worked as an artist for several years in Finland, exhibiting my photography and video based multimedia work all over Europe in private and group exhibitions and festivals. I have also been part of work partnerships and collectives in Finland, Spain and the US. I am fluent in Finnish, English
and speak elementary Swedish and German
