My name is Svetlana Larina, originally a native of Moscow, Russia, now based in Kuopio, Lakeland, Finland where I moved about five years ago.

a passion for the art photography.

I am a photographer who was started a little bit more than 12 years ago with reportage and photostock photography. It was a great experience for understanding the photography style and quality Client would like to get.

Parallelly I am a graduate of Moscow University with a master’s degree in mathematics. It helps in my photography work to structure all the tasks of photo producing from Client’s communication and photo shoot producing to printing the photos.

A little later, living already in Finland, I received a bachelor’s degree in Photography, Media and Visual Expression. I was very happy to study for three years in the right place with the right people with the same passion for photography and visual effects as I did!

I make product and portrait photography.

Now I make product and food photography, portraits, reports and photo stories. So my experience in different photoshooting situations helps me not to be afraid of northern winter evenings, midday sun, small children, cloudy weather, dogs and artificial light.

My photo studio

I have a photo studio of my own, which is fully equipped with artificial lighting, modifiers, stands and everything else.

The studio has a cyclorama with replaceable roll photo backdrops. Studio’s space is well suited for both product and portrait photography. 

There is a photo studio of my own.

Because of the large windows the photo studio has a great opportunity to use natural light too.

The studio is complemented by a large collection of filming props, surfaces and backdrops.

photo props

You can see how it works throught my photography. 

I believe that the principles of sustainable development must be applied to photography too.

Sometimes real props treasures come across to me in secondhand stores. So I believe that the principles of sustainable development must be applied to photography too.

photo props: textile
photo props: knifes, forks, spoons

Equipment

In addition to the studio, I make photos on location and at the client’s premises: my equipment allows me to organize this kind of photo shooting.

If a photo project requires it, I make photos at the client’s place

This is what my default filming kit looks like: two cameras made by Canon (one as a backup camera), two batteries, two memory cards, L-series lenses, tripod for backstage filming.

Work With Me

I carefully coordinate and prepare for each photo project. This is why I don’t have a calendar on my website, and usually it’s impossible to book a photo shoot automatically: before photo session I have to communicate with you by letter or voice, understand your task, prepare moodboard, props and so on.

On the contrary, you, after talking with me, will understand whether I am “your” person or not, whether you are comfortable with me or not. This is especially important if you are planning portrait photography and a little less important if the topic is product photography.

But it’s always better to work with nice people.

I collaborate with private individuals, brands and agencies.
