Moscow 2013 Track and Field WC

What a great summer behind me (read: six weeks of sailing and over 1000NM on the Baltic…)  – and it is time to return to work. Track and Field (IAAF) world championships in Moscow have been going on now for couple of days and some more days yet to come. Looking forward to the fall- […]

The father of Picasso

It’s been extremely busy month which I’ve spent it mostly teaching. Right after coming home from Val di Fiemme I did a four day intensive on sports photography (working with photographer Aki Loponen – a collaboration which I enjoyed immensely) and almost right after that one I started a two week intensive on journalistic multimedia […]

Talking of Sports Images…

Talking of Sports Images…

One of my favorite images from these games. The three ladies above everyone else: Björgen, Johaug and Kowalczyk. Slowly packing my stuff here in Val di Fiemme, heading homewards tomorrow.  Next month will be very much teaching oriented: first teaching sports photography  Thursday thru Sunday and then video and multimedia intensive in Lahti (joint project […]

Postcards from Italy

The daily routine is the same. In the morning there is typically an info, then around noon a competition, in the evening some skijumping or a medal ceremony (not too many of those so far…). One never sends postcards these days… at least I don’t. And still haunted by the Koci Hernandez piece I referred […]

Val di Fiemme 2013

Val di Fiemme 2013

(Click here or the image above to enter the multimedia) Back on the road. A quick pitstop back home after Nove Mesto and then off to Italy for couple of weeks to cover the WC of XC-skiing. Looking forward to it – as beautiful mountains all around me probably allow some skiing myself… :-) But […]

2013 – Wish for a Moment of Clarity

This time of the year I usually write about the year past and make predictions for the year(s) to come. But not this time. Enough said on the state of our media, the future and all that jazz. One of the main events to yours truly this year  was the London Olympics. I wanted to […]

Two Hills Tournament…

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 […]

The Default Skating Image

The Default Skating Image

I was shooting skating during this weekend. Finlandia Trophy, the opening of wintersports season for me. As I posted couple of images in the FB, I got into an argument – no, call it “fruitful exchange of ideas” – which I thought merits more discussion. Basically, my friend argued that the image I posted “did […]

F 5.6 in Helsinki (Tuesday 4.9. at 19.00)

UPDATED 5.9.2012: My sincerest thanks to everybody who attended. Thank you for your patience (we stayed talking until eleven or so :-)), keen eyes, good questions. It is so rewarding talking to people about something you care about and seeing the appreciation of your passion shared. You were a great audience, I really had a […]
