SLASH
(GUNS N' ROSES)
Redondo Beach CA 2010

"I've had a privilidge to shoot this very legendary guitarist 3 times all in all. Twice I've had one on one shoot with him. One time was just live shots but one of those shots ended up on his album cover: Slash Live in Manchester. In addition to that album cover the management order my photos for t-shirts & other merchendise.

Guns N' Roses used to be one of my very favourite bands when I was a teenager. I even got myself Gibson Les Paul because Slash was playing one. So it was truly amazing to get to meet my great idol. And I was extremely happy when I got reply from Slash's personal email that he really liked the photos!"

"I've had this qoute in my Facebook's 'Favorite Qutes' for many years: But the eyes are blind. One must look with the heart (Antoine De Saint Exupéry). When I had this photo shoot with Andrea Bocelli I felt like I understood better about the meaning of that qoute. I felt very honored to be in the same room with an artist who can really see more than the most of us."

WALK ONWARD ...
... FOCUS ON THE LIGHT, Lohja FIN 2011

"I shot this in winter 2011. In the summer 2010 I had 2 months & 1000km long walk on the Santiago's Road. But when I was done with the walk I felt the journey was not finished enough. So decided to live whole winter in our old summer cottage in Lohja. It was very much middle of nowhere during the winter. Closest neighbors about 5km away.

2010-2011 were very much a life changing years for me. In the end of 2011 I decided to end the lifestyle I had until that. I quit drinking totally and decided that I want my life to be different than what it was before that. It doesn't mean the journey was finished but it was end of one era! It's still not easy always. But I feel better about everything and is it "easy" all our life supposed to be?"
