Swedish Brainfart

Swedish Brainfart

Sorry about the title. I really tried to come up with something more politically correct, but I just couldn’t. So ridiculous was the ruling of the Swedish highest court (Högsta Förvalt­nings­doms­tolen) last Friday. If you speak the language, take a look, it is pretty short reading. And it is really, really scary. Basically it states that a drone (UAS) with a camera …

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 they award their …

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

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. For numerous …

Sochi Olympics, Day 15: Your Typical Day

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 might be interesting …

Playing with Snapseed

Playing with Snapseed

I’ve never used Instagram. I know I should have… but just never got to do it. The closest I’ve ever got is a program called Snapseed, which produces (I think) quite similar results. I started using it in the summer when kayaking and sailing when I did not always have a laptop with me. Besides, I spend so much time infront of …

Olympics, Day 10: Size does not matter…

Olympics, Day 10: Size does not matter…

Days just fly by. Covered wrestling the other day, yesterday did kayak for the first time — I will be doing that now for several days towards the end of the week. Finland got the first medal yesterday (windsurfing), but as it was in Weymouth I was not shooting it. Bummer… Friend of mine sent me a real …

Olympics, Day 6: Fencing, Sailing…

Half way thru the games. Been busy, being the only photo­grapher for my client means I am really pushing it. Which also explains why I have been very quiet in this blog as well — there just is no extra time. Work intended to the client(s) and simply getting around from venue to venue in the London …

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 bodies …
