Kari Kohvakka has mastered the art of capturing everyday magic – without complicating the issue. Patience, perseverance, a feeling for people and an excellent eye for detail – these are some of the reasons behind his success.
His background as an Art Director, where he was accustomed to buying images himself, means that Kari understands how an image can underpin a message. This is why, as a photographer, he finds it easy to get his head around a project and come up with ideas for how he can translate values or arguments into exciting photographs.
Kari trained at Berghs School of Communication. He has worked as Art Director at several advertising agencies, including Ogilvy, Saatchi & Saatchi, Håwi RSCG and Måndag annonsbyrå in Stockholm. Liljedal Communication in Örebro and Hasan & partners in Helsinki.
