PPSA Galleries

Jouko Taukojärvi, PPSA

I started my hobby in the secondary school. We had 600 pupils in the school and a very active camera club. We took a major part of all the class pictures with my Reflecta-2. I was dreaming of Leica. Now I have my Leica and dreaming to learn to use it.

I participated in the year 1958 in the first domestic photo contest. During my business career, my photos mostly supported my travel reports. I was in charge of Europe's largest fine paper operation and I lived through, very closely, the digital revolution from paper printing and the photography point of view.

My international photography activity started after joining the Helsinki Camera Cub. There I found many very experienced photographers. Our international exhibition team is one of the most active in all of Europe. There I got my AFIAP in 2011 and EFIAP the following year. In 2013 I received my PPSA and EFIAP/b.

Today my main activity is to further develop my skills in Photoshop and print quality.
