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- […]
As you might know, it is called Four Hills Tournament (Vierschanzentournee)… but to me it became only two. Finland has been doing a record low – yesterday three out of four jumpers left for Finland because of their poor performance. Kind of discouraging… and not much to do as a photographer for the rest […]
(Click here to see the multimedia) It is the most important social happening of the year – as a social event, you could say it is sort of our Academy Awards. It is also the most viewed TV-program of the year. I’ve covered the event several times – yes, you might argue that […]
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.

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 […]
During the past couple of weeks I have been playing with new toys – or tools, more like it. Canon Finland was kind enough to lend me the new EOS 1DX and the 5Dmrk3 to play with for couple of days. No, this is not a test, just simple first impressions.
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.
(Gallery updated – for the last time). Just came to think about something. No big thing, just some quiet self-reflection. No complaints, no whining and absolutely no ranting. Just thinking aloud. But: I realized that majority of my work could be classified into three different categories. The image above is routine. Your basic point and shoot. […]
