About Saija Lehtonen
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.
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.
