Hard-headed, own style maker

Timo, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?

I started to film My World travels, but it blew up and next I know, I'm shooting for money

Who is your inspiration in life Timo? How do you keep inspired?

Irving Penn, definitely, someday I want to make art, big like him

We all make mistakes Timo; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

I had few good colleagues who got greedy on others success, and that's The lasta on heard from them, because of my hard head

Timo, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?

First come, first served. No matter what

Please tell us Timo, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

Well, I don't have that Lind of situations on me yet, on the strong organiser and like 99,9% times I'm prepared for everything

Timo, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

Well.. My strong background in business management taught me how to handle other hard-headed people

Timo please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?

I got to photograph My grandmother, oh and maybe Lemmy Kilmister because I'm a big fan lol

Timo, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

Well, I don't really take fully scripted gigs, I need to see My own vision too. Not only ad's

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

Haters going to hate, so better to give me good reasons to do so

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?

Currently on looking for new brands to work with. I really love shoes, and classy dresses, so maybe something from that field...
