Professor Mika Salminen: “Next for the dance course”

Professor Mika Salminen, the head of THL’s health safety department, has been photographing since he was a young boy.

– I used to get a Pentax SLR as a gift from my parents. I got excited about digital cameras again twenty years ago. I am still loyal to the same sign. I describe nature, architecture and sometimes people. We are going to have a joint exhibition with another Mika Salminen, says a professor who became known to the entire nation during Korona times.

In addition to being a leisure photographer, Salminen is also a successful balcony grower.

– I was very surprised by my green thumb. I have had good tomato and cucumber harvests from our small balcony and a couple of watermelons last year. The balcony is quite a jungle in summer.

Everything new is being developed:

– My partner and I have also thought about a dance course, because neither is very good in the sport.

The boys got excited about football

Due to osteoarthritis, Mika Salminen cannot run, but cycling and skiing are successful.

– I like to move around in nature, in the forest and at sea. At some point, the knee joint must be replaced.

Salminen’s sons are already adults, but as a child they played football and inspired their father to follow the sport.

– There have been many nice moments together in football.

Grandfather Salmis became last summer.

– Gives a lot of strength, endurance and joy when you see that life continues despite the difficulties of the world.

After shutting down the computer, he tries to think about things other than work.

– If it’s nice, I’ll take a walk. In the evening I might watch football on TV if there is a match for Liverpool or Tottenham in the England series.
