Finnish photographer Marika Kiviharju to Ohmygossip.com: I like working with nice and professional people

Marika Kiviharju (32)  is talented photographer from Helsinki, Finland. “I like working with nice and professional people. I am more of a team-player than a “lonely-rider”. I enjoy meeting new people, working with new projects and enjoy traveling too,” Marika tells to Ohmygossip.com

Please, tell us about yourself?
Marika Kiviharju, 32 years old photographer from Helsinki, Finland (my website is marikakiviharju.com). I studied in Institute of Design, Lahti. Most of my work is studio-photos with models and fashion. I also take photos for press as a freelancer. I am social and out-going person with a good sense of humour. I like working with nice and professional people. I am more of a team-player than a “lonely-rider”. I enjoy meeting new people, working with new projects and enjoy traveling too. Photoshoots somewhere outside of Finland are SUPER! Just had one in Tallinn ;).
 
When did you start working as photographer?

Since I started to study in Institute of Design, multimedia department (2001), we had a first studio-photo course. That was it! I liked it. I made a deal with a senior teacher of photography, that I could use the studio for my own projects. ” If someone asks something, say that You are making Your “diploma work”, he told me to do. I spent lots of time, evenings and weekends, practising photography in studio. Later I started to make model / fashion photos for a local model agency (ModelAce) and dance-group (Lamourettes) and got some spare money out of it. I graduated in 2005 and started my own one-man-photocompany right away. Since I´ve been working with several model agencies in Helsinki, press, studios etc. I work mainly in Helsinki-area as my studio is located in Helsinki, but I´ve had my camera and “mobile studio” with me for example in Paris, Kiev (Ukraine), Spain and now Tallinn.
 
What inspires you? Please describe your style?
I love working with people. I like to interact with my models. I try to make people relax and give something from themselves to the camera. My models don’t have to be all professionals. Best feeling is when you manage to take super photos of an amateur model and you can see how happy she/he becomes! My style is edgy, colourful and energetic. My photos can usually be recognized. I try to make things MY WAY! Not copying something that is done before. In artistic photos I want to have something to say also, a statement!
 
Which camera you use?

My pro-camera is Canon EOS 5D, very important friend for me! As a spare-camera I use Canon EOS 60D.
 
What would you like to be doing five years from now? What are your long-term goals – how are you preparing yourself to achieve them?

I just started a model agency-business with my good friend Sini Tarkkinen. I´d like to develope my part (wich is photoraphy…suprisingly). I want to create something new out of phtography. Nowadays its difficult to make a living out of this, so I need to be creative and build a new kind of business. Photo-exhibition is also on my mind. Artistic photos. But right now I don’t have enough time for that!
 
What do you do in your spare time?
As a mother of two small children I don’t have too much time for myself. When I can I go to gym or jogging. Or spend qualitytime with my dear husband. If I really don’t have anything to do, I usually hang out with my friends or go photoshooting with my model friends, of course! I´m a bit too much work-oriented person…
