Meet Konsta - the Squirrel Whisperer

24-year old Konsta Punkka has over one million followers on Instagram. The talented nature photographer’s rise to fame on social media has made it possible for him to work together with the likes of National Geographic and to travel to the most exotic places around the world.

Yet the humble photographer from Helsinki still thinks the most special place of all is Seurasaari Island, just five kilometres from the capital’s city centre. This is the place where Konsta first started photographing squirrels and fox cubs, earning his nickname “squirrel whisperer”. This is the place for him to relax and be close to nature.
