Hello everyone and thank you for visiting my photo stream!

I am a photographer from the nordic country Finland, located in northern Europe. I have been taking pictures for the last 10 years, and still do so actively pursuing my passion. All feedback is highly welcome, as that is an essential tool for improvement!

I usually shoot landscape, really enjoying long exposures and the lovely rough scenes up in northern Scandinavia. I usually like to shoot in color, but at times, black & white will deliver the scene with unbeatable impact. I have also lately started to learn how to photograph people, and it feels great to enter new ground. Studying off camera flash is fun, and it teaches you a lot about light.

I want to thank all my friends on Flickr, who have taken the time to visit my stream, comment my photos and give me advice - it means a lot!

    "Rob's got some excellent work here. In particular, his images of Finland and its terrain are enthralling. However, it's not that often a photo touches and uplifts the soul so much that you catch yourself thinking about it long after it's been viewed. Rob's 'Airborne happiness' did just that for me. It's a truly remarkable image. I'll definitely be checking back to see more!"
