Hi, my name is Ivo Kruusamägi and I'm living in Tartu, Estonia. For most of my career as Wikipedian I was studying genetic engineering in the University of Tartu.

I have been active in Wikipedia since 2006. Not surprisingly I am most active in Estonian Wikipedia, where I am also an administrator (verify). I'm also admin in Võro Wikipedia.

I have organized a lot of different image competitions (for example Estonian Science Photo Competition, but also WLE and WLM in Estonia). I also try to get more image donations to provide a better coverage of various topics. For instance, I started with the first HELP campaign in the middle of 2010, i.e. before the first WLM ever took place, and in 2019 it was held for the 10th (and last) time. I am organizing Estonian Wikiexpeditions. The latest bigger thing I am working on is Wiki Science Competition, that is a successor of European Science Photo Competition 2015 (some info).

Once I started with Olympus C-60 Zoom and then moved on with Olympus E-500, that I used until the second half of 2013. After that I have been taking photos with Nikon D3200, but now I'm planning to replace it with something newer.

When taking photos, I consider it to be important to cover the object as thoroughly as possible. It is good to have one excellent shot of a place, but it can't replace quality photos taken from all sides.
