What are your stats? (age, height, weight etc)
My birthday is November 2nd 1992, which makes 24. I am 167 cm and weigh around 50 kg. I wear a size 6, sometimes 8 (EU 34/XS).
Where are you from?
I live in London, UK, but I am half Finnish and half Estonian (dual nationality). We speak both languages in my family and my parents live in Estonia, which is where I grew up. I also lived in Belgium (Brussels) during my teens and finished high school there. And no, I don’t speak French nor Flemish fluently, but my French is okay.
Who takes your pictures and what equipment do you use?
I started out taking most of my pictures myself with a tripod, using the Olympus EPL-7. I still use the same camera with the starter lens or 45 mm lens for all my travel photos, flatlays and random snaps. When I travel, I ask my friends to take pictures of me, but I also work with photographers such as Jamie, Rebecca and Lydia, who use some form of Canon with many different lenses.
What do you do/what’s your job?
I am a Master’s student in chemistry and am currently spending the majority of my time in the labs of a hospital, doing research on peptide based hydrogels (materials that can potentially be used for 3D organ printing!). I consider blogging and Instagramming my part-time job.
How do you edit your Instagram photos?
I am planning to make a detailed video soon as this is the question I get asked the most! I use VSCO, Snapseed and Facetune for all my images, and occasionally SKRWT and Afterlight. I like to make my images bright, sharp, cool and with popping colour.
