A Monster of a Camera

A Monster of a Camera

I thought I share one aspect of my work which I don’t usually talk so much about and that is commis­sioned R&D and consulting. For obvious reasons — usually client is paying for your input and they would not be happy if you gave that away for free to a compe­titor. But, in this case I think there is no …

Levi 2008 — panoramic images

Skiing season is about to start. Pretty amazing, really, when you think about it. Went sailing last weekend, beautiful sunshine, you can still swim in the sea next to where we live… Heading to at least Sölden (to see the opening of Giant Slalom WC) and Levi (the opening of Slalom WC). Levi organizers contacted me; …
