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 …

GoPro and the iPad App

GoPro and the iPad App

Something totally technical (somebody could say just nerdy) for a change: GoPro came up with their long awaited iPhone/iPad app couple of weeks ago. I couldn’t get it to work (not that I tried that much…); but today I noticed something they posted on Twitter and decided to give it another try. Updated my three GoPro Hero2’s with Cineform Studio …

Shooting from a Kayak

Shooting from a Kayak

So what does a photo­grapher do when he is on vacation? Naturally: plays with cameras, what did you think? This summer has been very different in many respects — much less sailing for starters as usual (due to Helsinki EC in Athletics first and now the London Olympics starting next week) — and unfor­tu­nately more funerals …

Just One Image

Just One Image

This was one of the coolest assign­ments I have had for a long time — and I thought I give some credit now where credit is due (a big thank you to Riitta in IL) and talk about it a bit. And maybe also share some light into a profes­sional approach to a thing like this. I got a phone call from my …

Ski Jumping: Four Hills Tournament 2011–2012

Ski Jumping: Four Hills Tournament 2011–2012

Just a brief post to show that I actually do work for a living… Covering the “Vierschanzen­tournee” — or as it is called in English, the Four Hills Tournament. I did the Oberstdorf already two days ago and just finished the Garmish-Parten­­kirchen compe­tition.

Shooting 360°x180° Images — from a Helicopter

Shooting 360°x180° Images — from a Helicopter

This is a small demo. Please note: this works (properly) only with HTML5 compliant browser — such as Safari on a Mac. It works on iPad2 (i.e. Mobile Safari) but it does NOT work with iPad 1st gen. nor iPhone (except — I was told — it does work with iPhone 4S) — due to non-optimized media and subsequently high processing load. Thats’ …

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 — Tech Tips

Shooting Synchro Skating WC 2011 — Tech Tips

I had a couple of questions yesterday and today on some equipment — plus the always flattering “how the hell did you do that” comments — so I just thought I post quickly some pointers. Somebody asked on my cardreader… Yes, it is three Lexar readers daisy-chained together using the FW-800 port on my MBP; the fourth one …

Anatomy of a Shoot

Anatomy of a Shoot

I am presently covering the Alpine World Championships in Garmisch-Parten­­kirchen, Germany — but before I get more into that please allow me to post something which I did about ten days ago. I got a great compliment from my journalist the other day after I’d shot this assignment: “You know, when I learn that you are going to be the photo­grapher …

A Monster of a Camera

A Monster of a Camera

I thought I share one aspect of my work which I don’t usually talk so much about and that is commis­sioned R&D and consulting. For obvious reasons — usually client is paying for your input and they would not be happy if you gave that away for free to a compe­titor. But, in this case I think there is no …
