Suomenlinna - book, exhibition, workshops
Suomenlinna - islands of light - new book published spring 2017
My book 'Suomenlinna - islands of light' was published by Finnish publisher Docendo in March 2017. It's a collection of photos from Helsinki's most beautiful and atmopsheric location, the sea fortress and islands of Suomenlinna. It will be available in Finnish bookstores or from the publisher's website by clicking here. Or you can contact me about how to get it!
The book has 144 pages of top quality colour photographs and includes interviews with eight island residents. It's designed by talented graphic designer Ea Söderberg, the brains behind Hapate Design, and translated to Finnish by Finland's top literary translator from English, Kaijamari Sivill.
My exhibition of photos from Suomenlinna is on show at the Suomenlinna Museum until spring 2018. It includes many of the photos in the book.
In summer 2017, with the support of the Suomenlinna Governing Body, I launched One Day Photo Workshops on the islands too. Contact me if you'd like details of workshops or if you would like bespoke short courses or workshop to help you take your photography to a new level.
"As a keen amateur photographer and someone who loves Suomenlinna this was an irresistible opportunity for me. Tim is an excellent tutor who gently encourages you to think differently about how you approach taking pictures, and to experiment using the beautiful scenery and atmospheric locations on Suomenlinna. Rightly, he doesn't spend too much time on the tech-y side but uses his experience as a travel photographer to help you improve your own compositions. The feedback session was thought-provoking and suitably challenging. All in all a great day, topped off with a visit to Tim's beautiful exhibition - and the book will be a lovely reminder. Highly recommended."
