What you'll do

We normally meet by café Engel in front of senate square, but if you wish we can come and meet you somewhere else too, for example by the Railway Station. We can get some coffee or tea before starting and get to know each other and find out what kind of photos you desire to have.

Routes can vary depending on weather conditions and your hopes. Maybe you want to go to the harbour, or to some close by neighbourhoods? If you haven’t been in Suomenlinna yet, we suggest we hop on the ferry to get some amazing pictures while there. It’s all up to you what kind of pictures you want, but don’t worry if you are not sure, we’ll have plenty of ideas in our pockets.

Our goal is to create a connection between us and our guests through photography. After we are finished and you guys are happy with the pictures, we’ll hand you a little souvenir to take home! It also wouldn’t be the first time when the photoshoot ends in all of us going to a restaurant or a bar to continue the night together!

We can work on them the same evening and will email minimum of 25 photographs to you the very next day.

We are welcoming locals as well as tourists and encouraging our guest to challenge us. The more accessories, costumes and ideas our guests bring, the better. Or if you need something from us, maybe even just a warm jacket, just let us know and well try our best to make it happen!

Hello new friends,

My name is Era and I have been working as a photographer for most of my life. I have graduated from Turvak Academy (Movie Directing) and am now studying Hospitality, Tourism and Experience Management in Haaga-Helia University in Helsinki. I have worked as a photographer and first assistant director in movies and documentaries over a decade now.

My speciality is still photography in movies, but my skills cover all the areas in photography thanks to my long experience. Capturing time, place, and personality on the same frame is my goal.

I also have my lovely crew that will join us on these photoshoot sessions whenever they can. We have noticed it’s more comfortable for you when there’s two of us, so the other one can keep you company when I have my full attention in getting the perfect shot.

Can't wait to meet you!

It was an amazing experience. I received the photos only one day after the photo shoot, incredibly fast and professional and excellent result. We took care of the Corona restrictions and we were careful about it. I'll higly recommend Eral as the best photographer in Helsinki. He took the time to get to know me ang give exactly what I was looking for. This won't be my last photo shoot with him!

Eralp was perfect to my demand even though under bad weather condition and I could feel that he’s doing his best to meet my unusual request. I’ll never forget this very unique experience with him and will definitely contact him again if I can be Helsinki again!

Easy going yet professional. If you need a photographer for portrait shot in Helsinki, please look for Eralp. You can’t go any wrong with his photo shooting skills. He is thoughtful throughout the 2-3hours shooting. Met me on time, in fact I was 1min late. Always convey what you expect to him as he’s open for that. He is good in personal portraits shooting. I am happy and in love with all the shots I received (about47pics)! Hop over to Suomenlinna Fortress during autumn. The color is too lovely which can make you standing out in the fall foliage color. Thanks, Eralp for the lovely souvenir and a great cuppa treat!
