Hi, I am Thomas Kast, the man behind Salamapaja. I grew up in Karlsruhe,
Southern Germany and since about 16 years I live in Oulu, Finland.
Besides my day job and family, I spend my time being a passionate
photographer, videographer and tour guide.
Things I photograph are mostly landscapes, especially the mystic Aurora
Borealis. Through my photos I am trying not only to capture visual
beauty, but it is important to me to convey the
atmosphere and the feelings I experience.
In my portfolio
you can see a selection of my photos. It is also possible to order prints, which you can do when browsing through the Galleries
Being fascinated by nature and technology, I also doing a lot of
time-lapse videos. These projects of course include landscapes, auroras
and nature, but also people, traffic and so on. In the Video
section on my homepage you can see some of my work.
