Meet The Photographer

Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by!

I am Svetlana Larina, originally a native of Moscow, Russia, now based in Kuopio, Lakeland, Finland.

I am a commercial food photographer, recipe developer, blogger and berries enthusiast.

I do love to catch the reflexes, to make soft shadows, to be a light artist in the full sense of the word. Some details of the process I post in my blog regularly.

My Studio

On the one hand I own photo studio fully equiped with natural and artificial light, light modificators and some other strange things like shiny cardboard for cake and tweezers.

On the other flip my studio is equiped by kitchen appliances from oven to pasta machine and BBQ. I can cook everything and take photos before the dish has cooled or has faded.

My collection of photo props, surfaces and backdrops is pretty good and you can see how it works throught my photos.

However I constantly replenish the set.

Additionally to that I take part in photo projects at the client’s location: my equipment lets me to have such kind of photo trips.

Work With Me

Feel free to contact me in your very personal project, I speak Russian, English and a little bit Finnish.

Let’s do something interesting together!
