I am a photographic artist based in Helsinki, Finland.
My passion is creative portraiture and I make images with elements from fairy tales, fantasy world and past times. You might know me from Atelieri O. Haapala, a Neo-Victorian photographic art project which was active between years 2008-2016. Atelieri was a collaboration with my husband Marco Melander and together we made thousands of vintage-style portraits in Finland and abroad. Now we are making a book of it all: The Fantastic World of Atelieri O. Haapala - coming out in October 2018.
I work mostly digitally and I am dedicated to producing high quality post production.
