May 2019 – Photography

The weather is getting warmer and the nights shorter here in Finland. This month was quite rewarding, I captured my first good lighting photo and continued to develop my skills in my home studio. Below are some photos from May 2019. Landscapes/Nature: Above: The last bit of snow sits on an island in early May. […]

April 2019 – Photography

Posted by Jason Tiilikainen on 2.5.2019 in News

April was a bit of a mixed bag. The lakes have been thawing nicely and I have managed to get out into the nature, but in the end there were only one or two landscape photos that I thought were useable. It’s that time of the year where the scenery is mostly brown and patches […]

March. Yeah, March was quite snowy. I spent more time indoors developing my portrait photography than being out in the snow. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing, but I’m sure that when the lakes thaw and some water starts to show I’ll be back out there doing my usual business. I think […]

February marked the beginning of my journey into portrait photography. I spent a lot of my free time watching videos about lighting and shadows, trying to understand what I would need in order to start practicing. At the end of the month I bought myself a couple of softboxes and a strobe light. I figured […]

January 2019 – Photography

Posted by Jason Tiilikainen on 1.2.2019 in News

The start of this year has been quite interesting for my photography. I’ve attempted some more heavily-edited fine art kind of stuff, as well as some more food and product photography. Unfortunately, many of my shoots this month have been unsuccessful, and I’ve often returned home feeling like some kind of lost ice man with […]

Voiluoto – The Island That Keeps on Giving

Posted by Jason Tiilikainen on 25.1.2019 in News

I’ve been living here in Joensuu for just over 2 years now, and there’s one place that I just keep coming back to. ”Voiluoto”, is the name of this tiny island just off the shore of Kukkosensaari/Kalmoniemi. It is an easy walk from the centre of town to this place (maybe 20 minutes or so), […]

2018 – A Year of Photography

Posted by Jason Tiilikainen on 4.1.2019 in News

2018 was an incredible year for photography. I learnt a lot and am forever grateful that I managed to spend so much time with nature. With each sunset, sunrise and starry night burnt brightly into memory, I will move forward with a goal to experience them all over again in 2019. Below are photos from […]

December 2018 – Photography

Posted by Jason Tiilikainen on 2.1.2019 in News

For me, December wasn’t a good month for landscape photography due to the almost constant overcast weather, but I did manage to practice my product photography and get out into the snow a few times regardless. This year was however incredible, and I’m sure I’ll make a separate post to cover that. I’m also hoping […]

November 2018 – Photography

November was okay for me in terms of photography. The weather was mostly grey, and I wasn’t able to get out as much as usual. It was however interesting to see the change in the landscapes as the temperature began to drop, slowly freezing the lake water and producing some interesting shapes of ice. Above: […]

October 2018 – What a Month!

October 2018 – What a Month!

I was spoilt rotten by the weather in October. I gained some experience with woodland photography, got to see the northern lights for the second time and also managed to have the whole city of Joensuu to myself (not really, but at 4:30am it seems like it). The variety has been incredible, and although I […]
