Freelance photographer in Laos

Jaco island in Timor-Leste.

I’m Antti Helin, a Finnish freelance writer and photographer, and the co-founder of this Finnish language travel website Kerran elämässä (in English: Once in a Lifetime).

As a photographer I am specialized in the field of travel and development aid. I can provide both text and photos for my feature stories.

I’m currently based in Vientiane, Laos. Previouly I have lived in Timor-Leste, where I took photos for UNICEF and other international organizations, and in Nepal, where I covered the aftermath and relief efforts of Nepal earthquake for Finnish Church Aid (FCA).

In my LinkedIn profile you can find longer bio and some links to my previous work. Below are a few pictures as reference, if you are looking for a photographer in Laos.
