My name is Simon Bergholm. My greatest passion is working as a cinematographer and photographer. I work mainly in Finland and I speak swedish, finnish and english.
We all have stories to tell, stories that keeps us moving forward. This is my story:
It all started back in 2011. I sat in my room when my mom all of a sudden came in to my room and said: “I found a film school named Axxell City in Helsinki where they learn filmmaking, maybe you should try it out.” And so I applied.
I got in I got to learn all the basics about cinematography like exposing and framing the shot. After my year in Axxell City I knew that I wanted to join a second film school to learn more and have the chance to get graduated. That’s when I started studying Yrkesinstitutet Prakticum in Helsinki in 2013.
Yrkesinstitutet Prakticum was a three year education program where I learned the basics about filmmaking, photography and even graphic design. During those three years I shot few short films and music videos using the Canon 5D and 6D camera. Sometimes today I still watch all those videos from that time, and it always brings smile on my face to think how far I’ve come.
In 2016 I graduated from Prakticum as a Media assistant but I knew that I wanted to become something more. I remember how much I loved the feeling of telling stories through imagery and standing behind the camera, so that’s why I decided to dig deeper into the world of cinematography, and started to study in Yrkeshögskolan Arcada in Helsinki.
