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. Now I'm working at the university.

I have been active in Wikipedia since 2006 and, well not surprisingly I am most active in Estonian Wikipedia where I am also an administrator (verify).

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 2018 it was held for the 9th 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. Currently I am taking photos with Nikon D3200.

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.
