This is a short interview to introduce him:

 

Hi Shahid, where are you from?

I am from Pakistan

 What equipment do you use for your shots?

I use an iphone4  and a Canon D600 (18-55mm, 55-250mm lens)

Is there anything that makes Oulu unique?

Oulu is a unique experience of my life, since I have been here for 4-5 years and I have seen many other European cities but Oulu has its own calm, peace and beauty. Its very small but yet enough to live a standard life. The most striking thing in Oulu is its clean and neat environment, world class research and educational institutes and most of all free wifi in the city center making it world's first wireless city.

Do you have any message for our visitors?

Keep this city clean, live with peace, love and harmony.

Aurora season started http://www.ouluphoto.com/blog/2012/8/aurora-season-started With the days getting shorter, longer and darker nights once again give us the opportunity to experience one of the most amazing natural occurring phenomena - the northern lights. The season started last week with quite faint, but still visible display of which photo You can see here.

Keep in mind that this is just the beginning and breath-taking shows are still in front of us, especially since we're entering the Sun's maximum activity! Good hunting!

Midsummer http://www.ouluphoto.com/blog/2012/3/midsummer Although it's not yet spring, my mind is drawn to the end of June when I'll have the occasion to visit Norway for the third time - and not just any place, but the famous Lofoten Islands. A cool mixture of mountains and Arctic Ocean, with many fjords, beautiful villages and astonishing views. If You're interested how it looks - check out my and Daniele's galleries:

A new adventure begins http://www.ouluphoto.com/blog/2012/3/a-new-adventure-begins If there is something that really takes all my energies, well, that is the beginning of a new adventure. The first days of a new academic year were the ones in which I was able to concentrate, to take notes during lectures and even  to arrive on time in the morning.

This is a new adventure too. Four friends with a big passion for taking pictures. I would not really say "four photographers", since each of us has his own "everyday job" to carry on. But still, whenever possible the camera is in our hands. The step to start a project together was just behind the corner and now this is the right opportunity to go for it. 

The OuluPhoto project will collect our pictures. It will be a showcase for the landscapes, people, activities in this small (?) town at the 65th parallel north, with its Aurorae Borealis and its midnight suns.

I am ready to begin, my seat belts are already fastened.

- Daniele
