We decided to make short and casual interviews with a few amazing people that have helped us. Now is the time to introduce you to the man behind the camera, Joonas Vohlakari. 

 


 

Describe yourself with 3 words: Sleepy, crazy, kind

Where are you from? I'm originally from Pori, from where I moved to Helsinki and now I live in Turku.

What do you rather photograph: nature or people? People in nature.

Best summer memory? Epic summer of 2009, MKJ never forget.

What camera do you use? I have a Canon 5D.

The best thing about photographing? Self-expression and capturing the moment.

Favorite place to travel? I've been to London for a couple of times, it's a really nice city.

Who is your dream person/thing to photograph? Shooting a collection for JULJA haha. Any people I find interesting. Like couple of months ago I was photographing a man, who was a transvestite. Taking pictures of a stranger in his own home was new and instructive experience.

What are your future plans? IF I'm lucky, I'll start my photography studies next fall at Lahti Institute of Design and Fine Arts. Hopefully in the future photography will be a career for me!

JULJA Women: Viivi Rousku

It's time to get back to our JULJA Women campaign after a while. Viivi Rousku is a 21-year-old lady who is currently pursuing to study law. She enjoys jogging and going to the gym. Her greatest dream is to be able to live a long and a healthy life, have a family and live happily. She would also like to travel and see the world. Australia is on top of her list, because of its beauty and people. Being able to go to a needy country for voluntary work is also something she is keen on doing.

Viivi found out about JULJA through a friend and got the chance to participate in our JULJA Women Campaign at Kontti last May. Take a look at Viivi dressed in JULJA.

Behind the scenes

Last Tuesday we had a photoshoot with a talented young photographer, Mikko Puttonen. In these shoots we combined our second hand clothes and clothes from Premiere -collection. We had two very amazing locations to take these photos so we were all quite excited when this day finally arrived. 
 
Our model, Noora arrived from Helsinki early in the morning. After hair and make up was done and we had gathered all the necessary equipment for the shoot, we headed towards our first location. Sarianna Sormunen was the person behind the make up and hair of our model. 
 
We started from Nordkalk quarry at Parainen which was an amazing and unique location to shoot. Although it was quite windy and cold at the top, we got amazing photos and had a good time. After that we moved to one amazing looking roof so we didn't get away from the wind. The weather was perfect for the mood that we wanted to be in the pictures. For once you could actually be thankful for the dark and cloudy sky, haha.
 
These pictures tell you maybe more about the day so take a look.
 

(Looks like the CEO ate a few donuts, haha.)

We owe a huge thanks for all who made this photoshoot possible. So THANK YOU! Let's wait for the amazing pictures to be published ;)
