How it all started?
My name is Simon Bergholm. I have a big passion working as a DOP, cinematographer, First Camera Assistent, Focus Puller & Camera Operator in all kind of different projects. I speak 3 languages, Swedish, Finnish and English but Swedish is my mother tongue. I live in Helsinki Finland.
It all started back in 2012, when I began studying filmmaking at Axxell City G18 in Helsinki for a year. We shot music videos, green screen and other small projects. At the end of my first year, I knew that I wanted to learn more and become better at it, so I started studying at Yrkesinstitutet Prakticum in Helsinki as a Media Assistant.
Studying to become a media assistent in Prakticum was a good time for me to dig deeper into the basics about lighting, still photography and cinematography. In 2016 I graduated as a media assistent, but I wasn't satisfied yet in what I had accomplished... I knew that if I wanted to become the best I can be, I need a higher level of education so that's when I packed my bags from Porvoo and moved to Helsinki to study Media Culture at Arcada University Of Applied Sciences. Which brings us to where we are now.
Everyday I'm learning something new and my biggest dream is to shoot a long film. Best part of my job is that I get to meet new people almost everyday, thanks to my freelance abilities I'm shooting videos for my clients or taking portraits almost everyday which is what I love.
