Awards for Saija Lehtonen
Awards for Saija Lehtonen's photos
Photography has always been my passion for as far back as I can remember. I look at the world through my camera and try to capture what I see as the beauty in the world.
Living in Arizona offers me a wide variety of photo opportunities of the beautiful US Southwest. My love for nature has found me photographing a variety of subjects from nature landscapes to wild animals in the Southwest. On occasion you will find me shooting a concert or two and even some portraits, but nature photography is where you will find me at home.
My photographic work has won awards and has been published in such publications as Arizona Highways Magazine, Popular Photography Magazine, Images Arizona, The Arizona Republic, Capture My Arizona Calendars, The Salt River Wild Horses ebook by Arizona Highways Magazine and in an upcoming wildlife book this summer. My photographic work has also been featured on AAA Highroads TV show.
I find happiness behind the lens bringing others the wonders and the beauty of the southwest as I see it. I am forever exploring the wonders of nature. To me there is nothing better than watching as the sun rises and sets over the desert. For that reason you will usually find me chasing that perfect light and sharing with all who love the southwest as I do.
I love to share my work with others and hope to evoke emotion with my photography and hope to do so for years to come!. Please enjoy browsing through my galleries.
