About me

More moments of coincidence. More frames in between. More vulnerability. These are some of the elements portrait and fashion photographer Samuli Karala is continuously looking for in his work: “It is never about the jewelry. It is always about the wearer,” he says, An intuitive portraiture artist, Karala is known for his career in fashion and beyond. His work has been featured in publications such as South China Morning Post, InStyle, Muse, Elle, Emirates Woman, l’Officiel, Schon, The Client and Raymond. Whether the subject is a Head of State like the President of the Republic of Finland, Sauli Niinisto, or a phenomenal R&B artist like Kelly Rowland, Karala is always interested in capturing the person behind the appearance. “The subject is suddenly free of things such as the title and the status he or she is known for in the world outside the studio. With every image, there is a chance to capture some essential from the very core of the subject.” He has created commercials and advertorials for client such as WWF, Bvlgari, Magnum (Unilever), Audi, Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Fazer, Unibet, Nokia, LIDL, Warner Music, Universal Music, Finnair/Finavia and AXE.
