Finnish-born Tina trained in photography at the London College of Printing. Following that Tina worked in a picture library, before stepping fully into full time freelance photography.
Her style has been described as colourful, eye-catching, punchy and vivid. She loves symmetry and clean lines, but also slight madness and ‘not-too-polished look’ when it comes to her rock portraits.
Tina shoots regularly for music magazines Total Guitar, Metal Hammer, Bass Guitar Magazine, Acoustic and Prog magazine, in addition to Helsingin Sanomat (the biggest newspaper in Scandinavia). Her work has been published in numerous magazines and newspapers, including Bizarre, Classic Rock, Guitarist, Kerrang!, New Musical Express, the Observer, Practical Photography and Rolling Stone.
Tina has also been a critic and a visiting columnist in Practical Photography and has lectured about her photography and career.
Tina’s current clients include record companies, musicians and instrument and clothing companies such as Rodrigo y Gabriela, Universal,Yamaha and Zildjian. Her pictures have been used in books, record covers and sleeves and posters, band T-shirts, tour posters and fashion publications such as Elle and Vogue.
Tina K has had eight photographic exhibitions in the UK, France and Finland to date, including an exhibition at Gibson Guitars showroom in London’s West End for five months in 2016. In 2018 she was nominated for Best Photographer in Heavy Music Awards and for Royal Photographic Society’s Hundred Heroines.
“The results we get out of Tina’s work are fantastic. The photos she takes for us are creative and most importantly non-pretentious. She is a very talented young artist.” (Gabriela, Rodrigo y Gabriela)
“Tina Korhonen finds beautiful, unusual, interesting locations for her photography shoots. She is sensitive to all needs and listens carefully to what everyone wants. Above all, she takes fabulous photos that I have always been really happy with. I thoroughly recommend Tina!” (Steve Hackett)
