Fantastic Finnish Photography



RapidStudio is proud to announce our photographic ambassador, Natalie Field, has been invited to Finland to attend the prestigious Arteles Creative Center. We are so happy that her hard work and outstanding talent have been recognised, but there’s a teensy weensy hitch.

Natalie needs help to get to there.

We are supporting Natalie through a crowdfunding project at Indiegogo.com and are putting the word out into the photographic community to ask for your help too. Crowdfunding is an amazing way to connect like-minded people from across the world in an online community of support to raise funds for a common purpose. What’s more, Natalie will be giving special perks like postcards, photo books and folios to generous backers. Looking for an exclusive coffee table book from a professional photographer? This is your chance to discover the profound beauty of Natalie’s photography.

Earlier this year, Natalie had an experience that shook her world and made her question the fleeting nature of our lives. From that experience she has drawn creative strength and is determined to make this pilgrimage to Finland.




The Arteles Creative Centre is hosting the artists’ retreat this October. Qualifying artists of all professions stay in the remote forested area of Haukij√§rvi in Western Finland. Jaw dropping panoramas, crystal lakes and intimate woodland scenes abound, providing a rich setting for artistic development. This tranquil habitat is an ideal environment for her photographic study of conceptual self-portraits entitled Human. Nature.



Natalie is exploring the evolution of humanity and our natural place in the eco-system. At this time in human history we have become so detached from the environment and similarly from our individual humanity and community. Through her art, Natalie touches our soul deeply and confronts our idea of self, and our place in the world, with a poetic understanding well beyond her years.

Join with us at RapidStudio and chip in to support Natalie Field’s creative career.

Team Building @ Gold Reef City

Early Morning on Wednesday the 19th of August, I asked my flu if we could have "THE TALK", I’m sure there and then, it knew it was time for us to part ways. There was no way I was gonna miss Gold Reef City, just the week before someone asked me “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” and I couldn’t answer them. I was ready to take on the roller coasters.


We’ve had so many team building sessions in the past but this was by far the best for me and for most of my colleagues. We were divided into 4 teams, Red, Blue, Green and Black for an Amazing Race type of challenge. I was in the Black Team, we wanted to win but we all decided that having fun was important too! We watched a 15 minute 4d movie, which was absolutely incredible but then, it was time for thrill ride number 1, the Tornado, just looking at it made my tummy turn and I unfortunately decided to sit it out, watching my team mates being tossed and turned around like they weighed nothing at all ma…
