I'm Outi, a documentary photographer based in Helsinki.
I like to have fun with colors, shapes and moments. A strong passion for street photography, music, art, yoga and a huge animal lover! Raw sun light and dark shadows keeps me going.
My travels in global south and various works with refugees has made a huge impact on me as a person and as a photographer. The most recent work trip was for Finnish Refugee Council in Uganda's refugee settlements. I did a photographic study on the impact of climate change on refugees lives.
I've been working in Helsingin Sanomat as a photo editor and as a photographer. I do al lot with NGO's as Suomen Pakolaisapu, Kotimajoitusverkosto, Suomen Luonnonsuojeluliitto and Greenpeace to mention few.
I'm always up for new assignments, give me a call and let's talk more!
