Shooting from a Kayak

Shooting from a Kayak

So what does a photographer do when he is on vacation? Naturally: plays with cameras, what did you think? This summer has been very different in many respects – much less sailing for starters as usual (due to Helsinki EC in Athletics first and now the London Olympics starting next week) – and unfortunately more […]

Playing with New Toys: EOS 1D-X and EOS 5Dmrk3

Playing with New Toys: EOS 1D-X and EOS 5Dmrk3

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 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 […]

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 […]

Too Many Interfaces…?

Too Many Interfaces…?

That actually was my desktop this morning. My shoulder is killing me  – had an operation about 2 weeks ago, presently I can be referred to as the  “Titanium Edition”  due to the spare parts screwed to my shoulder – and the fact that my hand moves BUT DOES NOT MOVE ENOUGH is driving me […]

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 – Tech Tips

I had a couple of questions yesterday and today on some equipment – plus the always flattering “how the hell did you do that” comments – so I just thought I post quickly some pointers. Somebody asked on my cardreader… Yes, it is three Lexar readers daisy-chained together using the FW-800 port on my MBP; […]

A Monster of a Camera

I thought I share one aspect of my work which I don’t usually talk so much about  and that is commissioned R&D and consulting. For obvious reasons – usually client is paying for your input and they would not be happy if you gave that away for free to a competitor. But, in this case […]

Ski Jumping in Ruka

I covered the World Cup opening of ski jumping, cross-country and nordic combined last weekend in Ruka and thought that I just show a couple of images – as quite often your favorite ones are not the ones which end up on the printed page. Although on this occasion, I have to say my clients […]

Some Simple iPad Stuff for Photographers

The iPad is now totally integrated into my daily workflow. I’ve talked about ShutterSnitch in my two previous posts – it totally rocks – and I’ve been promising to write about the future of the print on these devices one of these days… And I will, but before that, a quick post on two workflow […]
