Svetlana Larina

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

I am a photographer with 11 years of experience with
a passion for the artistic art.

I am a commercial photographer who was started a little bit more than 11 years ago with reportage and photostock photography. It was a great experience for understanding the quality of photography and what kind of photos 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.

About three years ago I decided that it’s not enough. Currently deep diving, I am finishing up my bachelor’s degree in Photography, Media and Visual Expression. And you know, this is real happiness when you are in the right place with the right people!

My Studio

Immediately after moving in, I started to install and to equip my own photo studio.

Nowadays my photo studio is fully equiped with artificial light, light modificators and some other strange things like shiny cardboard for cake and tweezers. Because of the large windows the studio has a great opportunity to use natural light too.

The studio is well suited for both product and portrait photography.

I own fully equiped photo studio.

Definitely this is my personal place of vitality. I do love to be a light artist in the full sense of the word: to catch the reflexes, to make shadows soft or hard.

If we talk about product photography, my favorite direction in this area is food photography (not least because I love and know how to cook).

I have equipped my kitchen appliances from the oven to the pasta machine and barbecue in the backyard of my house.

So I can cook everything and take photos before the dish has cooled or faded.

Some of props I make with my own hands, sometimes real treasures come across to me in secondhand stores.


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

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

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

In addition to working in my studio, I shoot in natural light locations as well as on a client’s location, using my own lighting kit if needed.

If a photographic task requires it, I shoot at the client’s place

My equipment lets me to have such kind of photography work trips.
