In English

Hi! I'm Sebastian Trzaska, 30, full time photographer. I specialize in wedding, event and portrait photography.

I have been working as a full time photographer since 2014, in which time I have shot nearly 50 weddings and plenty of events, from corporate halloween parties to physics conferences. You can find some of my portrait work at the Järvilinna exhibition this summer.

Photography is my passion. I have taken my camera from ice lagoons in Iceland to 1,6km depths under ground in Finland.

As much as I enjoy discovering beautiful light, my true passion is controlling light to create a mood and tell a story. Light can reveal or hide. Light can flatter or emphasize character. Light can completely transform a space. This is what I consider to be my main strenght as a photographer. Many photographers have become lazy as cameras have improved to the point where you can shoot in any light. I consider it to be a matter of professional pride to be able to augment and improve the light when needed.

I have enjoyed drawing from a very early age, and this shows in the look of my portraits. I had grown accustomed to being able to freely decide the direction and quality of light in my drawings. So naturally, soon after buying my first camera I bought a number of lights and started experimenting with light. This experimentation eventually led me to become a pro photographer.

Suomeksi

Olen toiminut päätoimisena kuvaajana vuodesta 2014 lähtien. Kuvaan nykyään pääasiassa videoita yrityksille (esim. tuotevideot, yritysesittelyt), muusikoille tai tapahtumille. Valokuvaan mieluusti tapahtumia, potretteja ja häitä.

Arvostan ja hyödynnän kaunista vallitsevaa valoa sellaista löytäessäni, mutta erikoisosaamiseni on käyttää salamoita vallitsevan valon tukena tilanteen niin vaatiessa. 

Potretteja ottaessa nautin myös siitä kuinka valoilla voi luoda tavanomaisestakin miljööstä kuvauksellisen. 

Salamoilla hotellin käytäväkin muuntuu glamour-taustaksi, tai harmaa ulkoilma dramaattiseksi asetelmaksi.
