From band logos to company branding and digital marketing. I've done it all and I'm happy to deliver all of your needed visual assets.
Web Design
Custom handcrafted WordPress sites that do not rely on cookie cutter themes or cheap plugins. I offer solutions for big and small projects and all budget scales.
Motion Graphics
Motion graphics are great for animated web elements to TV advertising. Any still images can be animated and when there are no images, I can make fresh graphics, shoot photos and video. Full package in one order.
Photography
From event photography to creative portraits and products photography. I always aim for more creative side of photography with vibrant colours.
Videography
Music videos, interviews, product ads and more. I offer video services for small productions or as director of photography in part of your own larger crew.
Art & Illustration
Album cover art is where it all began for Samael Creative. I'm focused on more darker style of art with macabre and occult themes. On top of that I also do digital portraits.

My new website has been under reconstruction for a really long time now because I've had tons of other things that took all of the time and energy, but now the new site is finally operational.
Still a few hiccups to fix especially for Apple devices that keeps giving me headaches. And now there will be a finnish translation for everything as soon as I get the small things fixed.
Oh and I finally made a booking system! I tried multiple different booking plugin and none of them worked as I needed, so I made my own hybrid by mixing a form plugin and a booking plugin together. Still not 100% perfect, but I hope it does the job I need it to do.
To date this is the second most complex site I've build right behind the Morbid North (RIP) especially from the backend because I also have my own selfhosted CRM running on the background. There's a couple of new things that will go live later 🙃

Let me know how you like the new look! 🤘

@psyclonnine first time in Finland at @6.linja Helsinki
Absolutely loved this show! 🖤

Check out the gig review with a photo gallery at @tuonelamagazine
@die_kur at @6.linja Helsinki.
This was a bit different type of a show than I've used to see, but I guess that's what keeps things interesting.
Only got a couple of video clips because I was there as a photographer after all.

Check out the photos and the gig review at @tuonelamagazine 🤘
SIGNS OF THE SWARM at On the Rocks⁠, Helsinki⁠ 🔥🔥🔥

SIGNS OF THE SWARM took command of the night. Despite multiple lineup changes during their career, the band has consistently delivered fresh content since their inception in 2014, culminating in their fifth album, “Amongst the Low & Empty,” released last July. Their performance ignited never-ending mosh pits and an unexpected amount of crowd surfing, much to the frustration of the venue’s security.

The evening concluded with an electrifying finale, leaving me craving more of the raw intensity witnessed from SIGNS OF THE SWARM. If only every show could promise such an immersive experience as this unforgettable headlining performance.

One year ago I photographed my first show for @tuonelamagazine 
Ever since I've shot 90 shows on stage and the plan is to keep going forward 🤘
On top of the shows I shot for Tuonela, I've been published in multiple other medias like Imperiumi and Regen Magazine. I've also worked directly for the bands, DJ's, venues and events. Happy to work more for new clients, so hit me a DM if you need a photographer, videographer, graphic designer or motion designer. I have a whole arsenal of creative magic at my disposal 🔥🔥🔥
