The new Canon 1DX mark2

The new Canon 1DX mark2

Been playing with couple of new toys lately and the most notable of these is probably the new Canon 1DX mark 2. It was introduced couple of months ago and it is not on the shelves yet, but we should be seeing it coming within couple of weeks. I had it in my hands very briefly when […]

Three Illustrators

Three Illustrators

I promised couple of weeks ago that I show some things which have been keeping me busy – and thus away from this blog – so here is another one. It is one of the most memorable assignments this year, a series of three small portraits I did for Kuvittajat RY (Finnish Illustrators). Every two years […]

End of the Road

End of the Road

The photographer  I have always looked up to immensely is Hannes Heikura. For various reasons, but I will not get into them here.  Unfortunately he is no longer with us – he died last spring, but his work lives on. The last chapter of his Helsinki trilogy “The End of the Road” is at display in […]

Why Syria is happening?

Why Syria is happening?

You cannot open TV or any media for that matter without stumbling to the the news and the grim images of the refugees from Syria. Refugees, how is EU dealing with this… this constant information overflow leaves me personally totally puzzled. Anxiety and compassion are the first words which come to mind, but I am also […]

Visual Storytelling

Visual Storytelling

I’ve been away from the screen and the keyboard for a long time. The whole of last year was definitely a turning point of some kind… ending of something which had become an essential part of my professional life (i.e. high profile sports photography)  and beginning of something else… (more about that later). And while busy trying to […]

Art in a Toilet

Sometimes it’s great fun to do some totally different. The culture office of Porvoo asked me, if I could come up with anything to their summer #URBCULT -project. They basically gave me a one square-meter “outdoor toilet” (in Finnish “huussi” or “hyyssikkä”) – and free hands to do “art”. And yes: without the actual seat-and-the-bucket […]

Anatomy of a Good Documentary

Anatomy of a Good Documentary

Spring for me means intensive teaching. Presently doing Video 101 for photographers in LAMK (Lahti University of Applied Sciences). As always, enjoying it immensely. I asked the students in three words describe what they feel is essential in a good film / documentary. And to make things more interesting: one word had to be a noun, one an […]

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Janne Zareff kirjoittaa viimeisessä Journalistin kolumnissaan, että verotuspäätökset eivät ratkaise ammattijournalismin ongelmia. Ongelmat  ratkaistaan sillä, että tarjotaan jotain sellaista, mistä jatkossakin yleisö on valmis maksamaan. Hän toteaa kylmän viileästi ja täysin oikein, että ammatijournalismin olemassaolo ei ole itsestäänselvyys, vaan että se on yksinkertaisesti ilmiö, joka on syntynyt tietynlaisessa historiallisessa tilanteessa. Toisenlaisessa historiallisessa tilanteessa sen olemassaolo voi […]
