What the Hell Are You Thinking?

What the Hell Are You Thinking?

I’ve tried now three times to write something about this, but I just can’t do it coherently . Sorry. It’ll turn into a long whining story which somebody will try to turn against me .… and as we are talking about the national religion — ice hockey — so I really should watch my step. But I just have to say: …

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Been here now three days: fog, rain, snow… It is a question of choosing your profession, I guess, but I just don’t enjoy being wet all the time — nor does my camera equipment. Plus in this total “grayness” it is hard to make photo­graphy worth showing. But yesterday I made something which I consider might be worth sharing. In November during …

iPad — The Future of Our Journalism?

iPad — The Future of Our Journalism?

This is sort of an anniversary article: I wrote about the iPad about a year ago for the first time. A the time, nobody new what it would be called: iTablet, iSlate… No tech specs available, just rumors. I immediately said — then — that this would change world as we know it. We, the journa­lists. IPad got launched …

Wrapping Up Barcelona 2010 Experience

Wrapping Up Barcelona 2010 Experience

It’s been quite an experience. My two principal clients Iltalehti and Aamulehti jumped on the oppor­tunity of using the Livefeed from here and it has so far generated an audience of several thousand people. Commenting has been really scarce — but then again that’s Finland, it’s just not part of the culture to comment (unless …

You cannot Define the Truth Instrumentally

You cannot Define the Truth Instrumentally

About two weeks ago I was surfing the net and I stumbled on this image on a Helsinki Times page. “Nice HDR-work” was my initial reaction (took me c. two seconds) and then, WTF? Byline with photo­grapher and STT/Lehtikuva/Reuters… What was this? I got interested, googled this particular photo­grapher just to see if this was his style in …

Vancouver Olympics, day 13: Busted Plans, Busted Knees…

Vancouver Olympics, day 13: Busted Plans, Busted Knees…

Sometimes you just don’t win. And I’m talking about myself, not the Finnish athletes… who also have won absolutely nothing either. These games are slowly starting to resemble a national disaster. But my point: I had planned to shoot a sequence of Janne Ahonen, the moment he leaves the large hill and springs forward. His style has been under …

Vancouver Olympics, day 11: Panoramic Images

Vancouver Olympics, day 11: Panoramic Images

For the first week it was pissing rain and you could not shoot anything with an extreme wideangle, as you would have only gotten fog and water on the lens. But it has gotten better. I have had couple of friends already asking for these so here we go. I had a free morning and I decided to shoot …
