photographer & filmmaker


Visual storytelling is my cup of tea.


Visual storytelling is my cup of tea.

I’m Lumi Hannele Kauppinen, a freelance documentary photographer and filmmaker who enjoys discovering various corners of this globe. My main focus area is in-depth storytelling on social justice, environment and animal welfare.

Equipped with a M.A in visual journalism from Tampere University and a B.A in film art from Turku University of Applied Sciences, a good dose of experience in media planning and interest in interactive and participatory multimedia productions, I'm ready to take on interesting projects right now.

Based in Helsinki but will travel - I'm available for photo and video assignments all over the world. Collaborative projects are always of interest.

If you like what you see, drop me a line, I'd love to hear from you!
