Congratulations, Heli!

Congratulations, Heli!

I’ve written about this multi­media piece couple of times earlier. But please bear with me one more time. Today I had the honor of receiving the Multi­media of the Year 2013 Award (Suomen Lehti­ku­vaajat / Finnish Pressp­ho­to­graphers Association) together with Heli Kaskinen in Helsinki for DocImages. My role in this production was simply to act as a mentor …

Some of you might have noticed the thing we did in DocImages couple of days ago. Well, if you didn’t, here’s a short recap. (And here is an article I wrote in Finnish in our blog) I am getting sick and tired of the ever tightening legacy print death spiral and especially frustrated with their total lack of …

Multimedia: The Independence Reception 2012

Multimedia: The Independence Reception 2012

(Click here to see the multi­media) It is the most important social happening of the year — as a social event, you could say it is sort of our Academy Awards. It is also the most viewed TV-program of the year. I’ve covered the event several times — yes, you might argue that it goes into the …

A Walk On the Memory Lane: Rock Summer 1988

A Walk On the Memory Lane: Rock Summer 1988

This is not brilliant, far from it — but it is different, I dare say. Something I did now in the spring and finally I thought it is time to show it. Show that there are options — that it is not that hard to do something this simple, yet totally different. That there are possi­bi­lities outside the …

Photography Legends — Multimedia Approach

Photography Legends — Multimedia Approach

This is my first attempt on something that I have been planning to do for a while. A multi­media series of photo­graphers, legends of their own time and era… Pictures and stories behind them. Told by the photo­graphers themselves. I will try to make this into a series — would be pretty impressive to make a series of say 20–30 …

Forget Photography — Screen Capture Rules

Forget Photography — Screen Capture Rules

(Just updated the small image gallery I’ve been keeping from here) Two nights ago, I go to cover the prize ceremony of the men’s X-country 15km race here in Oslo. Matti Heikkinen is the first man to win this title in 12 years in Finland — so it’s big news back home. We are doing 11 pages …

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Oslo 2011 Skiing: A Multimedia Approach

Been here now three days: fog, rain, snow… It is a question of choosing your profession, I guess, but I just don’t enjoy being wet all the time — nor does my camera equipment. Plus in this total “grayness” it is hard to make photo­graphy worth showing. But yesterday I made something which I consider might be worth sharing. In November during …

Kiira, Kiira, Kiira.…

(Updated: image gallery 28.1.2011 at noon) Yup, that’s it. That’s what I did today. And what I will do tomorrow. And the day after… Sure, I will be covering some of the other events as well, but there is no question where the focus will be. Not that I am complaining — on the contrary. She is a pure joy to photograph …

European Championships of Figure Skating 2011

European Championships of Figure Skating 2011

I just got to Bern, Switzerland to cover the European Championships of Figure Skating 2011. This is the third year I do this in a row and I am very excited about it. It’s nice to get to slowly know the atheletes and their styles — as well as trying to perfect your own approach in shooting this. What …
