Maija Astikainen


I’m a photographer based in Helsinki, Finland.
I work a lot with portraits, editorial and lifestyle photography, and I really enjoy portraying animals and making travel and nature stories.

I studied BA & MA in Photography at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Besides commissioned work, I’m engaged in personal projects dealing with the relationship of human and nature.

Don’t hesitate to contact me with any project in mind.
I’m also into new challenges!
