Niko’s introduction

In 2012, I had the opportunity to try flying a drone. During my studies, I noticed that aerial photography was a new trend in the industry, and there was a clear demand for aerial images.

Around the same time, I purchased a Nikon D5100 digital SLR camera. My new camera enabled me to capture higher-quality images and explore the technical aspects of photography. I had been interested in photography since I was 13 years old, but having access to new and better equipment inspired me to learn more and experiment with the possibilities that technology offered in photography.

I published my first photos of Porvoo on my Instagram and Facebook accounts in 2014. Since then, the number of my followers on social media has steadily grown each year. On average, my posts now reach around 300,000 viewers, and my website reaches over 500,000 people weekly (as of January 2024). These are incredibly large numbers, and I am humbly grateful to each and every one of you.

Ilmavaltiaat Oy

My company, Niko Laurila Visual Storyteller, operates as part of Ilmavaltiaat Oy, a company I founded and own since 2015.

In 2016, Porvoon Yrittäjät (Porvoo Entrepreneurs) awarded me the Porvoo Young Entrepreneur Scholarship, and in December 2018, Porvoon Nuorkauppakamari (Porvoo Junior Chamber) selected me as the Porvoo Citizen of the Year. It’s a title I proudly carry, representing my hometown.

I was honored as the Young Entrepreneur of Uusimaa in 2020, a wonderful recognition of my hard work.

Photography is both my profession and my hobby in my leisure time. My camera is always with me. You never know what nature will offer.

It’s fantastic that technology has evolved, and the popularity of photography has risen due to new cameras. I have tried to find my own signature in my productions.

I always photograph with full heart and passion. Everyone can get great photos. My expertise lies in bringing out the best in those I photograph.
