The lightness of life.
Minna makes beautiful food look easy.
I am Minna Vauhkonen, a food photographer based in Helsinki. I am inspired by beautiful light, fresh ingredients and nature. I want to create delicious images highlighting real food or beautiful ingredients. Storytelling and small details are important to me.
I feel lucky to work as a food photographer, being able to combine two things that are very important to me, food and photography. I love to cook vegetarian dishes and I also like to create beautiful desserts and pastries. In addition, I love sourdough baking.
I enjoy nature and exercising. One of my favorite places is our summer cottage in the archipelago. I also get a lot of inspiration from nature for my work.
