Hi there!

I’m glad you are here. I’ve done this website to show you what I do, what I love and who I am.

My name is Laura Iikkanen. I’m a 28-year-old self-learned fashion and travel photographer based in Helsinki, Finland. I’m also a scouting director for Helsinki Models (part of worldwide Division Models company).

I’ve always been passionate with every single thing that involves fashion. And I absolutely love my job as a photographer and everything that comes with it. I appreciate the people I meet, the places I go, and the spontaneity in every shoot.

I specialize in travel, fashion and portrait photography, but as I am very open minded and always looking for new challenges I’m open for any of your requests and ideas!

I strive to create images that are both timeless and artistic.

‘’ You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.’’

Please, feel free to follow me in social networks and connect with me. That will make me happy!
