ROCKPHOTO STUDIO // Teguri 26B / Tartu

hey, you! welcome on this half-ass website of mine.
i consider myself a rock'n'roll artist- that is, because for me, music is the starting point of everything: in art, photography, design and everyday life. 
i love everything related to rock music and i've been analyzing the visual side of rock'n'roll for quite some time now: how the image & style translate into music; how to read and write images that deliver the right message and so on.
you can see my graduation piece  "visual language of staged rock photography" for tartu kõrgem kunstikool here. currently i'm continuing my quest for the visual truth in semiotics at tartu ülikool and passing knowledge as a teacher at pallas.
i spend a lot of time in my own atelier/studio space called rockphoto studio in the coolest building in tartu, surrounded by lots of rehearsal rooms for bands. 
i'm constantly shooting, designing, messing arond with paint and pencils, writing poetry & lyrics and making some noise but i also do a lot of work for our theaters here in estonia. 
needless to say, i'm always looking for creative challenges in the field of culture: music/theater/art. if that description rings some bells for you, feel free to contact me and let's do something meaningful together!

What i do: for bands/musicians: live & promotional photography, album design, posters, logo & merch. i can also write badass lyrics for you. 
for festivals: i will be the head of your photo team and/or photographer. 
for theaters: as a photographer: commercials, documentary, portrait, etc...  as an artist: check out photo books "tantsides tartut" and "draamat" or  see "suluseis", "midagi tõelist", "needid ja suhkruvatt" to get an idea.
