~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography Community.
Tell us a bit about yourself, JoniNiemela. How did you get into photography and why?
My name is Joni Niemelä and I’m from Finland. I work as a web designer in my own firm and photography is mostly (a serious) hobby of mine.
I guess the biggest reason to get into photography was the desire to save those moments in photos and to look my surroundings more closely.
Why are you on DeviantART?
I have been on DA since 2007 (wow that's a long time). This is a great and unique place to share my work.
You shoot a lot of Animals, Plants and Nature Photography. Why APN and not something else?
I live close to nature so it was just natural to me to start photograph world around me.
Animals, Plants and Nature is such a vast and diverse category on DeviantART. What are your favourite and least favourite subjects
