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. On occasion you will find me shooting a concert or two and even some portraits, but nature photography is where you will find me at home.

My photographic work has won awards and has been published in such publications as Arizona Highways Magazine, Popular Photography Magazine, The Arizona Republic, Capture My Arizona Calendars, The Salt River Wild Horses ebook by Arizona Highways Magazine and in an upcoming wildlife book this summer. My photographic work has also been featured on AAA Highroads TV show.

I am originally from Finland but have lived in Texas, New Mexico, California and now reside in Arizona. I truly love the Southwest and have made it my home for more than 30 years.

I find happiness behind the lens bringing others the wonders and the beauty of the southwest as I see it. I am forever exploring the wonders of nature. To me there is nothing better than watching as the sun rises and sets over the desert. For that reason you will usually find me chasing that perfect light and sharing with all who love the southwest as I do.

I feel very blessed to have an international following on my Fine Art America, Facebook and Google+ pages that spans the globe. This has given me the opportunity to make some incredible friends along the way and to learn about places that I have yet to travel to. It is such a great feeling to know that some of my images are adorning walls of places that I plan to visit someday, they just made it there before me.

In the past several years I have had the opportunity to pursue my photography with much more diligence and pursue a lifelong dream.
On a regular basis I submit my images to the Arizona Highways 'Photo of the Day' and 'Friday Fotos' series and have been honored to be featured on both many a time. In March 2016 I was honored to be awarded 2nd place in the Arizona Highways Magazine 2015-2016 Photo Contest. Some of my other achievements have been:
