Hi, I'm Joel and I’m a photographer based in Hamar, Norway where I live with my beautiful wife Anniken and our dog Harley.
I’m self-taught and began shooting in 2014 with my trusty iPhone after I found the love of my life - Anniken, and moved to Norway.
The new scenery developed curiosity to experience the vast wilderness I was exposed to. This became a game changer for me. What started by snapping images with a phone has over the past few years developed into a full blown love for the craft.
My professional background is in the marketing world of Red Bull and later in finance industry as a marketing consultant.
Today I spend my time telling stories across the world with my camera for both personal projects as well as for commercial clients.
My focus is to document people and places in a raw natural way, highlighting the beauty of fleeting moments by creating timeless, yet fresh and original images.
You can find my latest work on Instagram and Twitter with the handle @joelhypponen.
