Hi, I'm Joel! Nice to meet you. I am an extrovert by training and introvert by nature. I consider myself as a dreamer, feeler, hiker, biker and adventure seeker by heart.
After I found the love of my life - Anniken, and moved to Norway I developed curiosity to experience the vast wilderness I was exposed to. This became a game changer for me. What started by snapping images with my iPhone has over the past few years developed into a full blown love for the craft.
My professional background is in marketing world and I have worked at Red Bull and a Norwegian bank doing international marketing as well as executing various projects with international clients as freelancer.
Today I spend my time telling stories with a camera, crafting adventures and having fun as much as possible outside of city lights. My main focus is documenting people and places in a natural way, highlighting the beauty of fleeting moments.
You can find my latest work on Instagram and Twitter with the handle @joelhypponen.
Canon, Adobe, Olympus, Montblanc, House Beer, HSBC Bank, Fjällräven, Douchebags, Seager Co., Taylor Stitch and Katin USA.
My work has been published in META Magazine, White Magazine and Nordiske Bryllup.
