Got a real nice surprise in the mail. Signed copy of John Lydon‘s – aka Johnny Rotten – biography. With couple of my pics in it. I shot those images twenty some years ago. Last summer I got a phone call from the publisher in London asking if they could use some shots. They were […]

My wife looked over my shoulder when I was doing the last bits of editing yesterday. “This is the most impressive thing you’ve done in multimedia”, she said. Now talk about a compliment. And not that I agree… but I have to admit,  I am proud of it. Sure, the next thing will be better – […]

One of the reasons I have been quiet in this blog has been my rather serious commitment to teaching, which leaves very little time for anything else. Last semester I taught  in Lahti University of Applied Sciences (photography / video editing / multimedia) and Aalto ARTS University in Helsinki (multimedia). In addition I was doing some […]

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’ […]

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 […]
