National Parks of Finland -multimedia

A friend and colleague of mine Tea Karvinen, contacted me about a year ago and said she needed a bit of help with turning her images into a multi­media presen­tation of some kind. We go back a long way, we both used to work for Ilta-Sanomat and did e.g. Salt Lake City Olympics together 2002. She had spent six years …

360° Aerial Photography

360° Aerial Photography

We are doing an interesting project in Lahti (LAMK a.k.a Lahti University of Applied Sciences), where we were assigned to shoot some video footage and stills images on our local outdoor possi­bi­lities. The client did not ask for it, but I volun­teered to shoot some 360° stills as well — I figured that since we already were on …

Journalistin kolumnit

Journalistin kolumnit

Olen kirjoit­tanut Journa­listiin vakitui­sesti neljä vuotta. Alunperin pesti oli tarkoi­tettu vuoden mittai­seksi, mutta jostain syystä päätoi­mittaja ei ole puhal­tanut pilliin ja peliä poikki. Saa nähdä kauanko jatkuu vielä… Pohdin -jälleen kerran — mitä kirjoittaa seuraa­vassa kolum­nissani ja taas tuli mieleen, että olenkohan tuosta tai tuosta aiheesta puhunut jo riittämiin. Joten päätin kerätä yhteen kaikki tähän mennessä kirjoit­tamani. Jotta …

Epilogue to Homeless — Poste Restante

Epilogue to Homeless — Poste Restante

Sometimes images just haunt you. Words likewise. This morning I am hauted by both of them. I can’t touch you, but your words touch me like petals from abandoned flowers blown forgotten to the wind, a laugh lived but once, given life and gentle death, gone, but held forever, as the leaves turn gold falling, like we always fall. (The brilliant image is …

Swedish Brainfart

Swedish Brainfart

Sorry about the title. I really tried to come up with something more politically correct, but I just couldn’t. So ridiculous was the ruling of the Swedish highest court (Högsta Förvalt­nings­doms­tolen) last Friday. If you speak the language, take a look, it is pretty short reading. And it is really, really scary. Basically it states that a drone (UAS) with a camera …

Homeless — Poste Restante

Homeless — Poste Restante

Certain stories just cannot be left untold. Even if nobody assigns them, even if you cannot be sure if anybody really cares. And goes without saying, nobody pays you to do them… A former student of mine Vilja Harala from Lahti University of Applied Sciences approached me. She was in the middle of her final thesis — and …

Lightroom- ja Multimediakurssi

Nyt kesäkuun alussa pidän Lahdessa LAMK:in avoimella puolella kaksi kurssia, jotka voisivat kiinnostaa. Lightroom (2pv + ennak­ko­tehtävä) ja multi­me­dia­ker­ronta (5pv + harjoi­tustyö).

The new Canon 1DX mark2

The new Canon 1DX mark2

Been playing with couple of new toys lately and the most notable of these is probably the new Canon 1DX mark 2. It was intro­duced couple of months ago and it is not on the shelves yet, but we should be seeing it coming within couple of weeks. I had it in my hands very briefly when it was …

Three Illustrators

Three Illustrators

I promised couple of weeks ago that I show some things which have been keeping me busy — and thus away from this blog — so here is another one. It is one of the most memorable assign­ments this year, a series of three small portraits I did for Kuvit­tajat RY (Finnish Illustrators). Every two years they award their …
