MZI photographer, Kristian, Brings Europe into Focus

Introducing Kristian Suomalainen- the Face of Europe

MZI Global announces Kristian Suomalainen is joining their Barcelona Office, providing expert fashion photography services throughout Europe. Kristian has lived and worked in Paris, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Barcelona and Madrid. A graduate of the MJM Academy of Photography in France, his work has graced the covers of magazines in Europe such as In Style, Essence. His client list includes El Pais, Stocmann, Pierre Cavallo, Marimekko, and Jimi Tenor.

"Kristian’s gift is that he is able to utilize American marketing techniques in his photography while simultaneously conveying fashion and style with a European sensibility. This allows us to have a photographer available on a standby basis that fits into our strategy to trim our clients’ production cost by offering them superior on-location services", says Mira Zivkovich,President and founder of MZI.

Zivkovich is referring to MZI Global’s recently opened offices in Barcelona that serve as a base of operations for clients wanting to shoot ads in Europe. MZI Global now offers their clients the opportunity to photograph their products and services in the most dramatic locations in Europe without having to pay the high expense of transporting and housing a full production crew and models. These locations already have models, production crews, and a full set of production services on-site.
