The beauty of this world have always saved me
I’m a photographer from the north of Sweden. I’ve been nominated by IPA and gotten an honourable mention by WMO. I’ve a background in marketing, studied for an MBA in International business in New York and worked as a project manager for UngdomsBarometern. And, had my own market research company.
Now, I’m travelling the world taking photos.
Get in touch for photography work, marketing, collaborations or if you’d like to buy a print of my photos!
“For us, it feels incredibly fun to have the opportunity to buy photographs from such an experienced and professional photographer as Helena Mettavainio. Helena not only captures the sport itself, but also the joy, speed and emotion in the images.”

Sagres, Algarve, Portugal
My recent trip to Sagres, Algarve, Portugal and what I was up to and why I love Sagres – Where Gods Meet – so much. Surfing, swimming, dramatic views, and of course, cats.
Sagres – where Gods meet
The fortress of Sagres, Algarve, Portugal and it’s the southern most point of Europe
Spring winter in Norrbotten
Paper mills and snow mobiles. I’m trying to present a more correct image of the north of Sweden which is not only about nature. It’s about the natural resources of Norrbotten and what we do with them.
They’re horses, not ponies
My meeting with the Icelandic horses during my visit in January and a reflection about using a camera versus using the camera that’s in my phone. Also a bit about the benefits of entering photo contests and the iPhone Photography Awards.
Gran Canaria, you surprised me!
My travels along the winding roads in the mountains of Gran Canaria. A bit about landscape photography too and why not a mobile phone is the best option to capture the scenery.
Feeling the warm sun against my skin
My iPhone photography from my first days in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria. Sometimes the phone surprise me with what it can do. Like capturing a bird in flight. So use your phone for photos too, at least you have a memory of how you saw the world.
