I am Ville Vappula, a commercial photographer and filmmaker, who grew up photographing street snowboarding. Much of those cold nights has translated to my visual language, let it be composing spaces and forms, or shooting athletes doing their thing. I love action, clean compositions and dramatic lighting. I also love sailing, snowboarding and spending time in the nature.
I studied art education at the Aalto University School of Arts and Design, and wrote my BA thesis about Instagram.
I am working worldwide, with my studio based in Helsinki, Finland. Studio Kontrol Z

Environment: All our flights are carbon compensated, on commercial shoots we try recycle what ever we can, and our transport in Finland runs with bio gas (a carbon neutral, locally produced fuel). None of these actions cost more to our clients, but it is our responsibility to take care of them. It may seem insignificant, but through photography I've learned how much details and right attitude can matter.
