360° Aerial Photography

360° Aerial Photography

We are doing an interesting project in Lahti (LAMK a.k.a Lahti University of Applied Sciences), where we were assigned to shoot some video footage and stills images on our local outdoor possi­bi­lities. The client did not ask for it, but I volun­teered to shoot some 360° stills as well — I figured that since we already were on …

Journalistin kolumnit

Journalistin kolumnit

Olen kirjoit­tanut Journa­listiin vakitui­sesti neljä vuotta. Alunperin pesti oli tarkoi­tettu vuoden mittai­seksi, mutta jostain syystä päätoi­mittaja ei ole puhal­tanut pilliin ja peliä poikki. Saa nähdä kauanko jatkuu vielä… Pohdin -jälleen kerran — mitä kirjoittaa seuraa­vassa kolum­nissani ja taas tuli mieleen, että olenkohan tuosta tai tuosta aiheesta puhunut jo riittämiin. Joten päätin kerätä yhteen kaikki tähän mennessä kirjoit­tamani. Jotta …

Swedish Brainfart

Swedish Brainfart

Sorry about the title. I really tried to come up with something more politically correct, but I just couldn’t. So ridiculous was the ruling of the Swedish highest court (Högsta Förvalt­nings­doms­tolen) last Friday. If you speak the language, take a look, it is pretty short reading. And it is really, really scary. Basically it states that a drone (UAS) with a camera …

The new Canon 1DX mark2

The new Canon 1DX mark2

Been playing with couple of new toys lately and the most notable of these is probably the new Canon 1DX mark 2. It was intro­duced couple of months ago and it is not on the shelves yet, but we should be seeing it coming within couple of weeks. I had it in my hands very briefly when it was …

Visual Storytelling

Visual Storytelling

I’ve been away from the screen and the keyboard for a long time. The whole of last year was definitely a turning point of some kind… ending of something which had become an essential part of my profes­sional life (i.e. high profile sports photo­graphy) and beginning of something else… (more about that later). And while busy trying to get that “something else” …

Art in a Toilet

Art in a Toilet

Sometimes it’s great fun to do some totally different. The culture office of Porvoo asked me, if I could come up with anything to their summer #URBCULT -project. They basically gave me a one square-meter “outdoor toilet” (in Finnish “huussi” or “hyyssikkä”) — and free hands to do “art”. And yes: without the actual seat-and-the-bucket . It just …

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Kolme strategiaa medialle

Janne Zareff kirjoittaa viimei­sessä Journa­listin kolum­nissaan, että verotus­pää­tökset eivät ratkaise ammat­ti­jour­na­lismin ongelmia. Ongelmat ratkaistaan sillä, että tarjotaan jotain sellaista, mistä jatkos­sakin yleisö on valmis maksamaan. Hän toteaa kylmän viileästi ja täysin oikein, että ammati­jour­na­lismin olemas­saolo ei ole itses­tään­selvyys, vaan että se on yksin­ker­tai­sesti ilmiö, joka on syntynyt tietyn­lai­sessa histo­rial­li­sessa tilan­teessa. Toisen­lai­sessa histo­rial­li­sessa tilan­teessa sen olemas­saolo voi loppua. …

Learning Time-lapse Photography

Learning Time-lapse Photography

It’s been a long summer — and an even longer pause in this blog. I’ve been working on several projects — as well as reading and thinking a lot. Mostly about the future of the industry which has provided me a living for the past twenty-five years… Not moaning and reminiscing about the “good ol’ days” but more …

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 …
