Finnish press photographer Mikko Häme is a frequent visitor in our parts. His picture stories and materials from Louhsky area tell readers of «Koillissanomat» about football matches and the national park Paanajarvi, about delphinarium by the White sea (in the diving centre in pomor village Nilmoguba). He does not forget to visit colleagues from the Louhsky municipal newspaper "Pripoljare". For me Mikko Hjame is a top-class professional and a good friend of mine who is always ready to help with a good piece of advice.
