Princess Sophie Diaries

Princess Sophie Diaries

A project I started about ten years ago… and almost immediately abandoned as flash became obsolete and HTML5 was still in its infancy. But. Things have changed and I thought it would be a good time to rekindle this one. I was changing ISP the other day and on the server I found a folder full of panoramas I had shot years ago. …

Learning Time-lapse Photography

Learning Time-lapse Photography

It’s been a long summer — and an even longer pause in this blog. I’ve been working on several projects — as well as reading and thinking a lot. Mostly about the future of the industry which has provided me a living for the past twenty-five years… Not moaning and reminiscing about the “good ol’ days” but more …

Shooting from a Kayak

So what does a photo­grapher do when he is on vacation? Naturally: plays with cameras, what did you think? This summer has been very different in many respects — much less sailing for starters as usual (due to Helsinki EC in Athletics first and now the London Olympics starting next week) — and unfor­tu­nately more funerals …

Just a brief post to show that I actually do work for a living… Covering the “Vierschanzen­tournee” — or as it is called in English, the Four Hills Tournament. I did the Oberstdorf already two days ago and just finished the Garmish-Parten­­kirchen compe­tition.

Although on this occasion, I have to say my clients (Iltalehti, Aamulehti, Lapin­kansa, …

Heading to Barcelona

Heading to Barcelona

One month of sailing behind. Parked Princess Sophie in Turku yesterday and will head to Barcelona to cover the EC 2010 in Athletics tomorrow . Don’t really feel like it, but looking forward to cooking up some funky multi­media stuff when I get there — well, we’ll see… Then back home and another month on the …

Midway through the Four Hills Tournament

Midway through the Four Hills Tournament

(Updates on Canon EOS 1Dmrk4 on an earlier post . Updated 6th Jan 2010) I usually do not show tears­heets. But I’ll make an exception, as I think guys back home (seriously unders­taffed) have done a good job. So thank you guys. It’s half way through the tournament and this is what I have come up with so …
