First of all, thank you for taking your time to explore my work. My name is Inka Holck (nee Salmirinne). I am a photographer, media professional and Master of Arts majoring media science from the Finnish Lapland. I live and work in Rovaniemi but I'm available all around Finland and Scandinavia, as well as globally.
Photography is my main profession and passion. I've been working as a photographer since 2010 and my work has taken me from the cold to the hot, from the biggest sports events in Finland across the globe. I gain my inspiration for photography and other work from the surrounding life and the nature. From all the natural things in life. I believe that pursuing the authentic aspects of life brings us the most beautiful result in arts. Indeed, I'm inspired by life, enchanted by dreams, amazed by the arctic, blessed by the tropics, dumbfounded by the light, humbled by the passion and unwound by peace.
I have mostly been working on the field of portrait photography and sports specializing in winter sports and surfing but I'm always finding new projects and expanding my niche and learning more about photography and digital art as a wholesome world. So to say, I do all kinds of photography from nature and sports to portraits, events and fine art photography.
In addition to photography I do lots of filming and editing, digital design such as web designing and logo designing, translations and media skills mentoring.

"All of this I can experience while traveling around and exploring the world. I see great art in those types of sports and I want to show the beauty that I see, to others through my photos and films. Photographing an object that moves so fast isn’t easy, but I think that’s the reason why I love it so much. Even if the athlete, the place or the day is the same, every single second that I stand behind my camera challenges me. My photography has taken me to wonderful places and I’ve met people that I would probably never had met without it. I got my first camera when I was eight years old and I’ve enjoyed the art of photography ever since. I’m basically self-taught but I have had some amazing mentors who have helped along the way to get me to this point", from an artist review in Godartet Magazine.
