Two Hills Tournament…

  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 […]

Olympics: Day 3

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ski Jumping: Four Hills Tournament 2011-2012

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.

Anatomy of a Shoot

Posted on Feb 17, 2011 in Canon, Canon 5D mk2, Photography, Remote, Skiing, Sports | 12 Comments

I am presently covering the Alpine World Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany – but before I get more into that please allow me to post something which I did about  ten days ago. I got a great compliment from my  journalist the other day after I’d shot this assignment: “You know, when I learn that you […]

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 […]
