Merja Martikainen

I am a passionate hobbyist photographer from eastern Finland. I have studied art for many years and acted as a painter and a graphic designer. I bought my first camera in 2013 and attended a basic course arranged by our local camera club. From there my interest started to grow. At first, I photographed mainly nature. Gradually I got more interested in people and studio portraits. Nowadays I like pictures with a deeper meaning and message; for this kind of work I often make all the props and clothing myself. Models are mostly friends and acquaintances.

I attended my first international salon in autumn 2014. Now I am SKsLM, AFIAP and NSMiF/b and have applied for EFIAP this year. I have acted as a judge in several photo exhibitions. I am very grateful for being trusted and given this first-hand possibility to see magnificent international photography.

I shall continue with photography for as long as I’m able to. I want to create thoughts and experiences through my work.
