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

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 …

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Sochi Olympics, Day 18: Wrapping Up for the iPad

Feb. 23rd, 2014 I started writing my blog from Sochi when opening ceremony was going on in Adler. There is some symmetry in the fact that I am writing this last chapter (from here) as the fireworks light the sky during the closing ceremonies. This was my seventh Olympics and I simply love doing them. For numerous …

Sochi Olympics, Day 16: The lost Skis…

Two days ago, right after the pair sprint where Sami Jauho­järvi (a.k.a. Musti) and Iivo Niskanen got the gold medal, I was approached by a volunteer in the photo center. “Do you know if these skis belong to any of your athletes?” he asked. Well, trad. skis, 201cm and of the brand One Way… even I did know …

Sochi Olympics, Day 15: Your Typical Day

Sochi Olympics, Day 15: Your Typical Day

Feb. 20th, 2014 I had planned to write something yesterday, but unders­tan­dably, I was kinda busy as Finland won first silver in women’s pair sprint and and half an hour later our men won the gold medal. To me however, it was like the majority of my working days over here. And I thought it might be interesting …

Sochi Olympics, Day 12: Respect, Noriaki-san

Sochi Olympics, Day 12: Respect, Noriaki-san

Feb. 17th, 2014 On Saturday to end a long day I went to see the large hill compe­tition. Did not expect that much from it — and besides I felt I had gotten a decent picture of Janne Ahonen earlier — but just in case Anssi Koivu­ranta would do something I decided to go. The working condi­tions are really hard over …

Sochi Olympics, Day 9: If You Can’t Win, then at least Look Good…

Feb. 14th, 2014 On my way to cover the men’s 15km tradi­tional race in couple of hours. Finland has like less than 1% chance for a medal imho… Matti Heikkinen is the strongest candidate, but he has been sick for quite a while now, so perso­nally I don’t think he can make it. Sami Jauho­järvi is one of my …
