My name is Linda Svarfvar and I am a Turku (FI) based visual creative doing photography and making graphic design. 

I specialise in product, people and brand photography along with graphic and print design. My guiding light is simplicity, and as a person I am open minded with a can-do attitude.
For more than a decade I have worked in the fields of photography, textile, product and packaging design, so my experience is broad and versatile from both a visual and functional design perspective.
Product photography is a craft that requires patience and attention to detail. It is especially close to my heart as I have a special eye for texture, material, colour and composition. Photographing people is my other favourite, as it all comes down to communication, connection and trust.
I have a husband and two teenagers and in my spare time I like to chill with our dog, play padel, do pilates and go to art exhibitions.  
You are welcome to get in touch for photo bookings and other design commissions! I serve my clients suomeksi, på svenska and in English.
