FPPA’s 95th Anniversary Photo Exhibition presents FPPA members’ images which are awarded international contests around the world.

Many Finnish professional photographers have been awarded in several contests in last ten years, a.o. Ete des Portraits, Loupe Awards, FEP Annual Contest and World Photographic Cup. Go Finland!
I have two images in exhibition. Both were shot for Light & Lighting Photography Guidebook.

Exhibition is open until October 31st during library’s opening hours.


FPPA’s Order of Merit

Finnish Professional Photographers’ Association celebrated it’s 95th anniversary last weekend in Jyväskylä. Annual Meeting included lectures by professional photgraphers: Lauri Laukkanen and Mikaela Löfroth.

My colleague Anne Yrjänä was honored with Golden Order of Merit in gala dinner. Her ways of thinking is “how all colleagues could benefit from some matter and how I could share this with others”. And she works in that way too. Congrats Anne 🙂 I was honored with Silver Order of Merit.


Chairman of FPPA, Juha Harju is attaching Order of Merit. Thank you all colleagues and friends. Work will continue 🙂


Anne and me celebrating 🙂
