Olympics, Day 11: The Reuters App

Olympics, Day 11: The Reuters App

It’s just an app. And yet, it is our future. Reuters has an interesting iPad app from these games. If you are not familiar with it and have an iPhone/iPad, I suggest you try it out (it’s free). Reuters has c. 50 photo­graphers in these games. Some photo­graphy legends (such as Kai Pfaffenbach) — and all of …

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 …

Multimedia Production: DocImages

Everybody reading this blog in the past knows where I stand when it comes to our future: I am strongly of the opinion that paper as a medium for daily news will slowly fade out (actually, not so slowly…) and the future is elsewhere. Let me just refer you to my last post — and leave it to that. Everything …

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 …

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 …

QR Portfolio

QR Portfolio

Wanna see a portfolio? It is the image on the right. Don’t understand? Read the previous post. I just played around and realized that Photos­helter portfolio folder can be referenced directly AND it is Javascript-based / no flash. IPhone/iPad friendly in other words. Not that this portfolio is up to date or worth seeing in the first …

QR Code: Rich Media to Meet the Legacy Print?

QR Code: Rich Media to Meet the Legacy Print?

I don’t usually get carried away by gadgets or techno­lo­gical innova­tions. Usually don’t hype about them either. I might talk about them, review them, discuss them. Yes, you can call me gear-head if you want — but just because of that, I’m also very used to technology. I am not easily impressed. But this time I do. I am. Totally. …

iPad — The Future of Our Journalism?

iPad — The Future of Our Journalism?

This is sort of an anniversary article: I wrote about the iPad about a year ago for the first time. A the time, nobody new what it would be called: iTablet, iSlate… No tech specs available, just rumors. I immediately said — then — that this would change world as we know it. We, the journa­lists. IPad got launched …
