As you may have guessed, Henkki Zakkinen is a pseudonym. Invented for a rather silly project I liked it enough to keep it.
I started photography a long time ago. At the age of seven or eight there was the first Point-and -Shoot-Camera. Then at some point I inherited my mother’s viewfinder camera, later I bought my own cheap Yashica SLR. But only since I am owner of a DSLR my ambitions go beyond the snapshot and the vacation photo.
Sometimes I think productivity goes down with increasing skill and expectations. Still over the years some photos seemed good enough to be shown. I am quite glad I don’t have to live of them, as I am a horrible sales person. I would never proclaim my own work art and advertise it as such. Occasionally I do commissioned work, but working on my own ideas I like more. And there’s still so much I can learn.
