The first photoshoot I've had this year and I was also commanded to be in front of the camera. Kate planned and guided us trough it as I'm still not so comfortable to be in "the wrong side" of the camera 💀

Now were having a little micro holiday and I'll be back in business in a couple of days. Goal is to get my school exam and my brand new website done this week. If I get the site finished, I'll also publish a whole new booking calendar with still free slots for May! Weekends are mostly booked, but there's pleanty of free slots for weekdays. While waiting for the booking you can just hit me a DM 🤘
Maybe after that I'll have more time and energy to push out more content because I've been busy shooting a lot this year 😉

Miika Forsström VS. Johnny McMetal at American Car Show 2024

The second match I got to watch at American Car Show 2024 was one on one match between a former boxer Miika Forsström who came a bit similar vibe as Kurt Angle. A former athlete turned into show wrestler with a lot of nationalistic message. Johnny McMetal on the otherhand was clearly the villain of the night by ending the match with a win while making sure there won't be any baby boxers popping up in a while.

Overall an entertaining and a fun show to see live! 🤘

Dylan Broda & Artur Arder VS. CJ Rawlings & Stark Adder at American Car Show 2024

I witnessed show wrestling live the first time during the Hellsinki Metal Festival 2023, but I couldn't unfortunately see a single match till the end. This time, I came to watch a couple matches on purpose and reserved time to see them.
First match was a tag team match of constant action and drama inside and out of the ring giving the same action I remembered watching from TV when I was just a kid. Back then, I really loved watching WWF and RAW while we also learning some of the moves with my friends.

CLUB INFEKTIO Vol. 53 with specials guests DJ Benjamin Risto Uuno & DJ Snowdrop

Infektio DJ's:
NoiZu
Oppressor
⁠
Club Infektio took a while to launch this time due to Kiuas having a show right before Club Infektio started. But the dancefloor didn't take long to fill after the previous audience made room for next batch of party people.

Club Infektio, the iconic haven for industrial/ebm goth enthusiasts in Helsinki! 🔥
⁠
When Club Infektio first emerged onto the scene way over a decade ago, I had just crossed paths with the talented individuals who would go on to curate some of the most legendary events in Helsinki. I've done some of the party flyers/event graphics and quite a lot of photography for the event sucked into the scene. Here are just some of the photos and graphics I've done trough the years and more incoming as there's another party TONIGHT at On the Rocks, Helsinki. See you at the dance floor! 🤘

TURMION KÄTILÖT at Tavastia-klubi⁠, Helsinki⁠ 🤘🔥🔥🔥
⁠
Finnish industrial metal juggernauts TURMION KÄTILÖT took over Tavastia in Helsinki on March 2nd, 2024, filling the venue to maximum capacity with no need for additional warm-up acts. I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing their performances countless times, and they consistently deliver some of the best live performances.

Even arriving a bit late and finding myself capturing shots from behind the packed audience couldn’t diminish the thrill of seeing TURMION KÄTILÖT once again. After a hiatus of a couple of years since my last visit to Nummirock, the band proved that their electrifying stage presence and ability to create an unforgettable experience remain as potent as ever.

ALLT at On the Rocks⁠, Helsinki⁠ 🤘🔥🔥🔥
⁠
March kicked off with a bang at On the Rocks, featuring a diverse lineup of CRUCIFY THE FAITH, KARMANJAKAH, and ALLT. The night was a mix of local talent and Swedish acts, offering an array of experiences for the eager audience.

The pinnacle of the night belonged to ALLT, the headlining act from Sweden. With a progressive metalcore sound that has garnered attention in the local metal scene, ALLT delivered a performance that was well worth the wait. Anthems like “Paralyzed” and “Severance” reverberated through the venue, showcasing the band’s prowess in creating memorable and impactful music.

Despite being a relatively new presence in the metalcore scene, ALLT has already left an indelible mark, with their tracks becoming staples in local metal bars. The anticipation for their live performance was met with resounding success, leaving fans eager for more. With the promising potential displayed on stage, it’s only a matter of time before ALLT graces the bigger stages of metal festivals, solidifying their position in the genre.

CRUCIFY THE FAITH at On the Rocks⁠, Helsinki⁠ 🤘
⁠
March kicked off with a bang at On the Rocks, featuring a diverse lineup of CRUCIFY THE FAITH, KARMANJAKAH, and ALLT. The night was a mix of local talent and Swedish acts, offering an array of experiences for the eager audience.

The evening began with the homegrown sounds of CRUCIFY THE FAITH, local guys whom I’ve witnessed on stage multiple times. I felt sorry for them because, once again, the audience did the most Finnish thing by standing far back from the stage, leaving the front completely empty except for me and another photographer. I guess it’s easier for us to move around and take our shots, but I find the band also gives better shows when the audience gets close and shows some excitement. Despite a somewhat reserved audience, the band delivered a solid performance.
