Joni Ilmanen is a photo- and videographer 
based in Turku, Finland

I got my first DSLR camera back in 2015 when I started to photograph my friends and nature as a hobby. In 2019 I made my Instagram account @picturesbyjoni and started to post my nature and wildlife pictures there. My pictures got a lot of attention in social media and I quickly got thousands of followers and likes. I worked as a photographer for the Finnish Defence Forces in 2020 for nine months as a part of my military service. After my military service I started my own photography company in May 2021 and since then I have been doing hundreds of photo gigs for numerous clients ranging from private persons to big companies. 

I have a lot of experience in commercial, event, real estate, drone, portrait, landscape and wildlife photography. Nature and wildlife photography has been my hobby for many years and my pictures have been featured e.g. in National Geographic, BBC earth, Sony Alpha's social media channels, Suomen Luonto magazine and Visit Finland's social media platforms.

I have done projects for many clients like Bo LKV, Kultaranta Resort, Harjattula Golf & Country Club, Flowpark, Bau-Met, Brand Bustle, Rakennusliike Hörkkö, Rakant, Lumo, Mixan Tecno, Karlex, KiekkoKingi, Green Disc Golf, Aninkaisten Autohuolto, Aperitivo Turku, Porho Bar & Grill and Aura Sponsorship Management. Bo LKV has been one of my main clients since spring 2021 and I have been shooting hundreds of houses for them around Southern Finland. I have worked as a photo/videographer for the Finnish Defence Forces where my task was to produce pictures, videos and graphical content about Finnish Navy to Defence Forces' media platforms.

I use my professional level gear to produce outstanding and high-class content to my clients. My objective is to listen to my clients' wishes and exceed their expectations.​
