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 […]

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 […]

I just finished an intensive of multimedia storytelling in Aalto last week. Doing it intensively (i.e. 6-8 hours close contact, every day) really wears you out. Trying to stay “fresh” yourself, i.e. not fall into routines, and all the time trying to find out what it is this time you really think students would appreciate and benefit […]

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 […]
