Read what Riku had to say!
When did you first realise you had an eye for photography?
I think around 2012 when i started using my Nokia phone for photography.
What was your first camera?
A Canon 1100D, which i got back in 2010.
What has photography done for you in your life?
It has given me new experiences, friends and mostly beautiful memories in my hard drive. Also got some amazing deals with companies to photograph their products or services.
"I want to see the beautiful glaciers and animals while they still exist in this world."
If you could go anywhere for a shoot, where would you go and why?
Surely Iceland or Antartica. I want to see the beautiful glaciers and animals while they still exist in this world. But there are so many places right now where I want to travel. Hard to decide where to go next.
What is the absolute dream shot?
Oh man.. This is a hard one. Maybe a photo of a rare animal in beautiful environment. Or some adventure photo in epic ice-cave. Something like this. Right now I really do not have the ¨dream shot¨ in mind but some shots are always in my list.
Which of our watches would you love to see on your wrist?
Pearl Timer. It looks pretty amazing in the photos.
