About Erika Ottela


As a wonderer and wanderer, I am hoping to continuously create stories with my photos - from things both big and small.

I picked up my first serious camera in 2008 when I moved from Finland to Philadelphia USA, realised I did not know anyone, and wanted to do something that justified me going around on my own (an excuse that still works). Having lived in 7 other countries since, I have finally settled down in Johannesburg, South Africa, with my husband and an energetic little schnauzer, Merlin. Both of them have learned to tolerate the amount of time it sometimes takes to get a photo right(ish).
