We serve in all matters related to the field of photography with over 30 years of experience. Our spacious store and high-quality photography studio are located on Koskikatu, right on the edge of the market square in the Carelicum building.

We provide photos for passports, identity cards, driving licenses, visas, study and workplace ID cards, and websites. With our new equipment, we print physical photographs, thank-you cards, and photo collages from image files on mobile phones and memory devices.

In addition, we offer a wide range of photography products both in-store and available for order through our shop.

With a valid student card, you can get a 3 € discount on passport/id card and driver’s license photo shoot (plus photos of course :), and a 10 % discount on all other products except cameras, lenses, binoculars, studio photoshoots and third party orders (done by our subcontractors or partners) deliveded by us.

In the spring of 2023, the new owner, Mr Markku Seppänen, renovated the store’s interior — welcome to our store as a customer!
