Culture Calendar London – November

DSC_4072-1

OFF TO FINLAND YET AGAIN. Oh boy, another month that went by without a single post. And yet again, it is time to pack my bags and fly over to Finland for a couple of weeks. Though, this time it’s mainly for professional reasons. I started managing an artist who I’m quite excited about, so my schedule is all filled up with meetings with record label people, video directors, photographers, booking agents and promoters. Fun times ahead!

By the way, we took the above photo back in September when we spent a few happy days at the summer cottage in Kivijärvi. If I remember correctly it was a supermoon night – the perfect setting to try out our new wide angle lens.
