My name is Laura Mäkinen and I’m a 30-year-old photography amateur from Tampere, Finland. I love all forms of photography, but spontaneous portraits are my favourites. Children and animals are especially close to my heart as subjects since they can be very relaxed in front of a camera.

I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember, I started with film when I was very young and got my first digital camera back in 2002. I switched to a bridge camera in 2005 and got my first DSLR in 2007. I am currently looking for an apprenticeship in order to start an actual career in photography.

In addition to photography my hobbies include live-action roleplaying games, computer games and historical dance.

I do photoshoots mainly in Tampere, occasionally in Helsinki and Turku.
