Elisa Putti, NSMIF/b – Finland

I am a self-taught hobbyist photographer from Hämeenlinna, southern Finland. I’ve been interested in photos from the day my father brought home Life magazine in the early 60s. It was a photography edition. I can still remember those pictures. In my eyes, they were simply amazing and it was love at first sight. I didn’t have any camera tose days and could not afford any of course – I was just a kid at that time. In the early 90s, I got my first serious film camera and then later a digital version. I’m on that way and no end has been seen so far.

My main interest as a photographer is in all possible things around me and photos are my way of life. After retirement from my daily job, I have enough time to do what I love most and carry my camera with me everywhere. Some people think it’s annoying but I don’t care. I will continue that way!

I got my AFIAP at the time before digital equipment. Now I have received EFIAP/s. I’m a bit lazy participating in exhibitions. But I have all the time in this world so why should I rush.

In addition to exhibitions, I’m selling pictures at international photo stocks like AdobeStock, Alamy, Dreamstime etc. too. It takes a lot of effort and time to get photos for sale in different agencies. So my days are full of photo work – shooting, photoshopping, tagging, describing, uploading etc. It’s more like a profession right now.
