Eeva Makinen

I am a professional photographer and a wilderness guide from Finland. In the past I’ve studied photojournalism, wilderness guiding and I have a Bachelor’s degree in Traveling Management.

My life is mostly outdoors and I'm working closely with the nature. I would say I'm in my dream job as an entrepreneur. I've had my own company over 10 years and I can't imagine life without it.

I've lived in USA and Mexico and visited over 65 countries so far. Now I just love to travel in Finland and finding beauty nearby. 

For me happiness is all about freedom. It’s also about waking up in places where you start smiling as soon as you open your eyes. That's where I would love to take you too - either via my pictures or in real life.

At the moment I also write to magazines and I do campaigns that encourage people to spend more time outdoors. I have done guiding projects for Visit Finland and articles for outdoor magazines such as Latu & Polku. My photos has been seen for example at Rio Olympics in Finland House and Hossa National Park nature center.
