Lotta Polviander is a professional wedding and family photographer living in Tammerfors, Finland.
Lotta believes that photos make us remember certain memories and let us reminisce those wonderful moments in life. Time is the most valuable thing we have and it goes past incredibly fast. With photos you can always go back to those moments that are already gone and relive them. With photos, you can see all the beauty in your life that is sometimes so hard to see in busy, ordinary days in life.
Lotta loves photographing people in different situations, full of emotions, such as weddings and family sessions. She loves authentic moments and always sees little magic between people and loves to capture all that beauty, love and connection in relationships!
That’s probably the reason why she has been noticed in many photography competitions and her calender is fully booked for long ahead.
Wanting to share her love for photography, she gives workshops for photographers, called Loisto Creative (Creative Glory in English).
Photographing both private consumers and businesses, her studio is situated in Hatanpää in Tammerfors, Finland.
- This is for sure my most used lens for both landscape and the hunt for northern lights. It has an impressive sharpness and build quality.
I work a lot in the Nordic climate, which can range from minus 30 degrees to plus 20, in sun, rain and snow.
That's when I realize how important it is with good products, and the SIGMA 14-24mm F2.8 is a lens that I can easily recommend.
- If I would take only one lens with me on my trip, it would be this one. It is shartp, weatherproof and so useful thanks to its zoom range. This lens was used a lot during my visit to Greenland, where I was dependent on being able to vary the focal length often due to the landscape we were in. It also has an optical stabilizer that allows me to take photos handheld with longer shutter speed, and that's an advantage if you don't have access to a tripod. A unique lens that everyone should have in their backpack.
- This is my main lens for wildlife, but is also used a lot for landscape. The unique variation I have from 60 to 600mm gives me a larger working range, especially when I'm in a photo shed, but also when I work in landscapes.
If you use the zoom actively in landscapes, you will quickly discover how good it is to have this variation. Some of my landscape photos from Finland are shot with this lens, and also all of my wildlife photos.
