JUHAMATTI VAHDERSALO

http://www.vahdersalo.com/

Internationally awarded photographer & digital artist from Finland. I love creating conceptual photos that tell a story and have multiple levels of meaning in them as well as a touch of black humor. My passion is to create art that at same time makes you smile and think. Building scenes and combining simple Photoshop techniques in them are the key things in my photography. My very short history in photography has been quite an amazing ride. After I placed my semi-serious music hobby on hold 4 years ago, I quickly realized, that I needed to figure out some creative replacement to fill that "creative gap" composing music left. Photography immediately felt like a natural way to fulfil my creativity and at first I spent nights and days learning about lighting and how to tell stories through images. Learning by creating my own projects quickly began to produce results and within these 4 years I have gained quite a lot of recognition in different competitions: Fotofinlandia 2nd place in illustrative category, IPA 1st place in conceptual category, FEP annual competition finalist in portrait category, FEP annual competition 1st and 3rd place in illustration, and the biggest victory yet, FEP Professional Photographer of the year 2019.
