Sochi Olympics, Day 15: Your Typical Day

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 […]

Moscow 2013 Track and Field WC

What a great summer behind me (read: six weeks of sailing and over 1000NM on the Baltic…)  – and it is time to return to work. Track and Field (IAAF) world championships in Moscow have been going on now for couple of days and some more days yet to come. Looking forward to the fall- […]

The Default Skating Image

The Default Skating Image

I was shooting skating during this weekend. Finlandia Trophy, the opening of wintersports season for me. As I posted couple of images in the FB, I got into an argument – no, call it “fruitful exchange of ideas” – which I thought merits more discussion. Basically, my friend argued that the image I posted “did […]

London Calling

London Calling

As always: packing left for the last day. Thank God this is summer games, so it is basically shorts and t-shirts … and heavy rain gear – if it were winter it would be full skiing stuff, crampons,  plus things to keep you warm and dry down to – 30°C. Cameras are simple: two working […]

Just One Image

  This was one of the coolest assignments I have had for a long time – and I thought I give some credit now where credit is due (a big thank you to Riitta in IL) and talk about it a bit. And maybe also share some light into a professional approach to a thing […]

Ski Jumping: Four Hills Tournament 2011-2012

Just a brief post to show that I actually do work for a living… Covering the “Vierschanzentournee” – or as it is called in English, the Four Hills Tournament. I did the Oberstdorf already two days ago and just finished the Garmish-Partenkirchen competition.

Sports Photography: Win some, Lose some – Sometimes it Rains…

Sports Photography: Win some, Lose some – Sometimes it Rains…

 (Update 30th Aug.: click to see  a small (iPad compatible) gallery. Will be updated daily.)   If I remember correctly that was Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams” describing baseball… Well, professional sports photography is like that as well. You really push hard – or don’t do it, but then you will be history pretty fast […]

Let the Games Begin: WC  Athletics in Daegu, Korea

Well, I hope my being a total idiot for the past couple of days has finally reached the end and I can more or less concentrate on work over here. I mean, how much can one person mess up: lost passport, frozen computer, unpaid accommodation, 25 kg of hand luggage (funny they should react to […]
