Valentino Valkaj

Turku, Finland

My name is Valentino and I'm 35 years old. I do photography and videography full time and for now, I live in Turku, Finland. I'm also a passionate outdoor enthusiast and I am driven by that feeling of being outdoors, in nature, at 5am, shooting a sunrise when there is nobody around, when the world is still asleep. That is when I feel most alive. I started doing photography back in 2012, that was also the first time I picked up a digital camera. Instantly I was hooked and soon that passion turned into a lifestyle and full time commitment. I was born and I grew up in Croatia, but I moved to Finland in 2014. Since then, I have fallen in love with the nordic nature and culture.

What’s your outdoor story?

I started to be passionate about spending a lot of time outdoors with photography. First thing that I enjoyed making are landscape images and very often, to capture the most magnificent light, I have to be outside very early in the morning or late in the evening.
