Hi there,
You're here so you probably want to know something about me. This is me in a nutshell:

♦ I work as a freelance photographer.

♦ I love motorcycles. My ride is a slightly modified black Suzuki GSX-R 1000 K5. I've ridden bikes since 1990.

♦ Music has always meant a lot me. I used to play the clarinet (classical music) and the guitar (rock music).

♦ I have two dogs: a German Shepherd and a Finnish Spitz.

♦ I use Canon digital equipment and various 35mm and 120mm format film cameras.

♥ Thanks for stopping by, keep on shining. Kiitos. :)

    Nina fotóit megtekinteni különleges élmény! Fő témája Finnország, ez a csodálatos természeti szépségekkel gazdagon megáldott föld. Képeit olyan mesterségbeli tudással, olyan érzékenységgel és kreativitással készíti, hogy a szemlélőt elragadja, elvarázsolja, és nem utolsó sorban inspirálja, arra készteti, hogy elmerüljön ebben a fantasztikus általa prezentált világban. És jó ott lenni!!
    Győződjetek meg magatok is erről! Tekintsétek meg e tehetséges fotós képeit! Jó utazást!
    Ninának pedig azt kívánom, hogy folytassa tovább!!! Kíváncsian várom az új fotóit!!"

    "Nina's Photography displays an extremely educated eye in a profound and proficient methodology in her postproduction work. Her work ranges from everyday photography, to the most surreal and unbelievable images and one can imagine. I look forward to her new posts, and I feel fortunate to have her as a contact. I often draw from her images for my own inspiration, and am always surprised... pleasantly surprised by what her direction she takes her photography."

    "In the short few months that I have known Nina, her photostream has never ceased to amaze me! At times I feel as if I have run out of superlatives in an effort to comment on her amazing photographic eye. Taking the time to look at Nina's photos is like taking a dip into her fantastic world and country of Finland, and is almost always never disappointing and you are left with an inspiration that will keep you in awe. Not bad for a woman who likes to live in the Fast Lane. Keep up the great works Nina!

    "Nina's pics are works of art for me she not only shows her world and the world around her but she enhances it and as many others
    she embraces it through pictures my thoughts have always been she is way better than me (Nina says no,I agree)
    All in all she has a great concept on life and art
    Live Long & Prosper
