Thomas Kast - Aurora Photography Guide

An award-winning Aurora photography guide in Finland

Hi, I am Thomas Kast, the man behind Salamapaja. I grew up in Karlsruhe, Southern Germany and since about 20 years I live in Oulu, Finland. Photography started as a passion but has become much more than that. It is a way to seek out our planet’s beauty and express myself.

My main subjects are landscape, winter and night photography. Naturally, my photo tours and workshops concentrate on these subjects. 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.
