When it is time to lay down your paddle

When it is time to lay down your paddle

This is a project I have been working on for some time now. It is very personal and one of the most important – if not the most important piece of work I’ve ever done. I have enjoyed tremen­dously doing it and I am proud of the result, I think we did well. At the same time, happiness is not the …

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 …

I’ve been working in London, so unfor­tu­nately no great images from Weymouth. …

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 …

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 funerals …
