I’ve written about this multimedia piece couple of times earlier. But please bear with me one more time. Today I had the honor of receiving the Multimedia of the Year 2013 Award (Suomen Lehtikuvaajat / Finnish Pressphotographers Association) together with Heli Kaskinen in Helsinki for DocImages. My role in this production was simply to act […]

Feb. 23rd, 2014 I started writing my blog from Sochi when opening ceremony was going on in Adler. There is some symmetry in the fact that I am writing this last chapter (from here) as the fireworks light the sky during the closing ceremonies. This was my seventh Olympics and I simply love doing them. […]

Two days ago, right after the pair sprint where Sami Jauhojärvi (a.k.a. Musti) and Iivo Niskanen got the gold medal, I was approached by a volunteer in the photo center. “Do you know if these skis belong to any of your athletes?” he asked. Well, trad. skis, 201cm and of the brand One Way… even […]

Feb. 20th, 2014 I had planned to write something yesterday, but understandably, I was kinda busy as Finland won first silver in women’s pair sprint and and half an hour later our men won the gold medal. To me however, it was like the majority of my working days over here.  And I thought it […]

Feb. 17th, 2014 On Saturday to end a long day I went to see the large hill competition. Did not expect that much from it – and besides I felt I had gotten a decent picture of Janne Ahonen earlier – but just in case Anssi Koivuranta would do something I decided to go. The […]

Feb. 15th, 2014 If the other day I wrote about Aino-Kaisa Saarinen’s missing the medal by two secs, yesterday was even worse for Finland. First we had Iivo Niskanen. Guy nobody raved about before the games and suddenly he is leading the 15km race. He got to sit on the seat reserved for the leader […]

Feb. 14th, 2014 On my way to cover the men’s 15km traditional race in couple of hours. Finland has like less than 1% chance for a medal imho… Matti Heikkinen is the strongest candidate, but he has been sick for  quite a while now, so personally I don’t think he can make it. Sami Jauhojärvi […]

Feb 13th, 2014 I have a confession to make: I really do not care about sports. (And I love to shock people saying this…. :-) )What I mean is:  I am not that interested in who wins or how high or how fast somebody manages to reach. No, I like the people in this. I […]

Feb. 10th, 2014 Writing the headline I am losing count on the days… But been here a week now and I think I will be falling into  this routine of posting every second day. At least I try to do it, we’ll see what happens. I have covered  Xcountry, ski jumping and biathlon so far. […]
