While taking close-up portraits of animals is important, Punkka also aims to photograph them in their natural surroundings. "Instead of aimlessly shooting, I carefully consider the landscape behind the animal and search for a composition that best represents the overall environment." The photographer explained that the angle from which he takes the photo can make a big difference. "Capturing wildlife at eye level gives the animal the respect it deserves in the photo. However, it is important not to overlook other angles as well. Shooting from a higher to lower perspective can also showcase the vastness of the landscape."

According to Punkka, it has always been important for conservation. "A single photograph, whether it portrays a heart-wrenching or heartwarming moment, has the power to make a significant impact on the world."
