I'm are going back home to Hanko, Finland from Närpiö, Finland due to this coronavirus.

The Finnish government doesn't want people to go outdoors unnecessarily so we will not be out and photographing trains until April 13th.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Best Regards

Mathias Jung   /CEO

Our CEO has now got the flu. He has contacted the medical service and no coronavirus is suspected. For safety reasons, he will not be out on the field. He is feeling well and has not been affected much by the flu. We hope he will be out on the field again within 2 weeks.

Get well!

THL's Director General Markku Tervahauta was sweaty and sneezed during a press briefing last Friday. Now he has taken a corona test, according to Iltalehti. He says he feels good and does not feel flustered and plans to work as usual. The answer to the test will come Saturday.

Now we have the coronavirus in Central Ostrobothnia. We take this very seriously. If any of our staff is sick, they should stay home. We are waiting for more information from the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare and other Finnish authorities right now.

We update our situation when we get more information.

Dear followers!

Finnish authorities have sent out recommendations to everyone and therefore the coronavirus is stopping us photograph trains.

We want to keep our staff healthy and free of the virus and therefore we'll not be out photograph trains as much as before.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Best Regards

Mathias Jung   /CEO

The Coronavirus situation in Finland is starting to ease, but we are still living with limitations and isolations. Now it has been possible to prove that the measures taken by the government of the Republic of Finland have actually helped.

We at Junakuvat are happy to release an official announcement that we are soon out on the field again, but we still ask our followers to be patient. It can take months before everything has been restored.

We hope you are healthy and we will take good care of each other.

We wish you a really nice weekend.

Best Regards

Junakuvat -Team

Dear followers. Now the situation has changed here in Finland. Several Finns have received the coronavirus and this figure will continue to rise.

Now Finnish authorities have done things that have not happened before in peacetime.

The whole of Uusimaa has been isolated. You only get out of Uusimaa if you have a reasonable cause.

Now we will also completely suspend photography until the authorities give permission to open Uusimaa again.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but unfortunately the situation looks like this now.

You can always contact us via email. Our e-mail address can be found on the Contact page.

Best Regards

Mathias Jung   /CEO

Best follower. The Finnish government has begun threatening to curb all Finns if we do not follow their instructions.

We take a serious look at the matter and make sure that all of our photographers take a break from photography for a few days and work at home remotely to update our database, website and respond to e-mail messages.

We hope that this coronary pandemic will calm down in the near future.

Best Regards

Mathias Jung   /CEO
