Travel: What Do We Know About Mysterious Nordic Finland?

posted on 2nd of october, 2013

Having lived in Finland for a couple of years, I am probably one of the very few non-natives lucky enough to have experienced the mysterious life of this interesting country.

Most people probably don't know that Finland's closest neighbour is Russia. It might also be surprising to know that Finns have the highest number of lakes (by land mass) and saunas (by population) - in the world!

It is an extremely interesting country to visit, with vast nature reserves (with only 18 people per square kilometer compared to 20,000 in China!), intense summers (with the sun setting after midnight!), extreme winters (with snow cover for close to half the year!), natural wonders (like the northern lights of aurora...

Finland was one of the first countries I visited 19 years ago and I spent ten weeks learning the learning the language for my five day visit.

Just like "atoll" is the only word from the Maldives in the English language. I do like that sort of trivia. And the Finns of course :-)

posted on 9th of october, 2013

Hi Guys!

I decided to write this as I imagine I am not the only one to ever have had this dilemma. A lot of people have great shooting ideas but just don't know how to approach the tricky subject - of models and, of course, associated releases - required to implement such ideas. The unfortunate consequence of this is that a lot of creative ideas remain just that - ideas that never become reality. What a shame...

There can be no doubt that Top Pros - such as the Yuri Arcurs' - amongst us are obviously pretty good at this. Well, I don't know about you but I am not quite Yuri yet! Ha ha... I suppose experience has meant that such pros now have a good handle on addressing this issue. But how about guys like you and me who are fairly new to the...
