TEEMU LIAKKA

 

Teemu is a cinematographer, a professional diver and has extensive knowledge of working in harsh natural environments. During his 20 year career he has always followed his enthusiasm, taking on interesting projects rather than just assignments

 

After film school in 1997 he started his career with music videos and commercials. Gradually he moved more into documentaries and made aerials for features for a while.  His passion for the underwater world took over in 2002 when in preparation for a documentary project he ended up in commercial diving school.

 

Today Teemu mainly shoots documentaries and underwater scenens for features. Although he is a very versatile cinematographer involved in visual art projects, equipment design and commercials, at the moment his interests lie in documentaries, nature and of course underwater work.

 

Teemu is based in Finland
