I got into photography by accident,
even though I have always been interested in it and been basically taking pictures
all my life (using film but let’s not get in to that age thing).
A couple of years ago I started to take it seriously when the life I had planned didn’t go
as that, I found something new. Good example how life guides as,
we just have to grab it.
Horses have always been in my life but when I started to photograph horses
I found the thing. You know, the thing that makes other things somewhat less important.
Something special that I could do all day and never get tired of it.
Photography and travelling go so well together, just money getting in the way of it all but
when it’s possible, I take my camera and laptop and hit the road! Last year I did some
travelling around Iceland. My favourite place definitely, there is something in that place
that you can't explain, have to see it for yourself. Also did a trip to the US and met some
mustangs for the first time. Very special place that impressed me but will write
about that in a different post.
I used to have horses of my own but now I have only two miniature shetlands, my guys,
Retu and Wilburi.
They are in my pictures time to time but as they say in Finland
“suutarin lapsella ei ole kenkiä - the shoemaker's children go barefoot”, I take
pictures of other peoples animals. Not enough time or what ever excuses but this
summer I try to photograph my own animals more.
Couple of interesting ideas that I try to make happen, so let’s see what crazy
stuff I come up with this spring and summer.
