"Don't trust your camera to know what you are doing, tell your camera what you want it to do. It is not only the camera that makes the photos so good, it is the photographer behind it. My name is Markus Hovikoski and I've had photography as a hobby for most of my life. I am a very passionate father of 5 and a photographer. Photography for me is a way to express myself and show the viewers what I see. I have often been told that I have exceptional vision and someone from abroad has even called me "The ambassador of Finnish nature". You don't know how good that makes me feel, to know that there are people who appreciate what I do and truly enjoy what the see. I have my own style on photography and I am not going to change it in any way. I don't want to mimic other photographers, we all have different style and everyone of us photographers is a unique. Some of us have better equipment than others, but it is not the camera gear that makes the great photographer - it is the eye that the photographer has. I have done many types of photography, portraits, landscape, nature, wildlife, HDR, B&W, etc. Every style has it's own affection to me and that is the reason why I do so wide range of photography. I don't want to do only one style. I love them all, so why not do them all.
