On the road with a travel blogger – April

A Q&A with Aapo Kyöstiö, who found his niche at the age of 11 and has been taking photos of aircraft ever since.


How did you first get interested in aviation photography?

I used to go to the airport without a camera – just to watch the planes. Slowly, I started taking photos with my phone and now I use a professional camera and lens.

What captivates you when ­taking photos?

I’d have to say the process of editing and sharing my photos. I also enjoy receiving feedback from my followers, which of course keeps me motivated.

Which aircraft is your favourite to photograph?

Hands down the Finnair Airbus A350-900, particularly the one in Marimekko Kivet livery.

Is there a certain time of day you prefer to take photos?

Yes, during the day is best because there’s a lot of air ­traffic. I especially love to plane spot during the winter because the snow brings about a special light to the photos.
