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 […]
Been here now for five days. Nothing really that exciting going on (as a photographer, I mean: haven’t done any mind blowing imagery nor seen any either) – except that it is always fun and extremely rewarding to be working with the best of the best. 1200 photographers (if I remember correctly) – some of […]
