Hey, I'm Joel (@joelhypponen). To me, photography is a language for expressing what I see and feel.

Despite the noise and often overwhelming challenges in life, I see beauty everywhere. For me that is a constant choice and decision to live by. What I see, feel, and what gets my heart beating is us, humans — the way we are.
I grew up in Finland, left the country after military service, then went to the ends of the earth just to find my home in the nordic. Currently my home is Norway, where I live together with my beautiful wife Anniken and our dog Harley. I find joy in the wilderness, being surrounded by nothing but the mountains, fjords and wonderful people.
My style is a combination of film and digital imagery and often described as photojournalistic, natural and timeless. Inspired by the Old West. Traveling is in my blood and no place is too far for telling your story.
