Couple of published ones

Few shots that were featured in recent Slammer magazine in a story about Relate To It project. Last season I was busy with shooting video but still managed to get few shots that ended up in the magazines. I hope there is more to come in future issues.

Many times you have to choose between video and photos, and most of the times video comes first. Note to self: Shoot more photos in coming season! New camera helps to make it happen as it makes me want to shoot more and more, I just enjoy photographing more than I did year ago.

Man behind the whole Relate To It -project Antti Autti shares his thoughts about the project.

Antti at Tamok. This was my favorite shot of the year. We were in Tamok right up in the treeline, it was snowing really hard, weather was getting warmer and snow turned to slush. Everything was wet and my videocamera got fogged from inside and stopped working. Then same thing happened to DSLR, not only lenses were fogged but the sensor seemed to be as well. I could not shoot with them anymore. I turned to Super8, got the quick shot that ended up in the film and in my pocket was an old Olympus XA 35mm point-and-shoot loaded with x-process Lomo film that I used for this shot. Not a bad day after all! Photo can be seen at Cafe Kauppayhtiö exhibition.

Filming in New Zealand pt.1

After summer holidays it was time to get back on snow and travel all the way down to New Zealand. Here is quick update on what we have been up to so far.

First day after summer and so much fun at Snow Park

Antti getting the pipe skills back in Snow Park pipe with some lo-fi Lensbaby touch.

Antti and our awesome guide Stu from Southern Lakes Heliski enjoying great weather and good runs

Shady walls had the best snow. This was shot in Mt. Albert which was the venue for World Heli Challenge couple of weeks ago.

Back from holidays

Oh yeah, its time to get back to work. I was lucky enough to have almost three weeks of summer holidays this year. Still few days of summer left before going down under to New Zealand. In the meantime, enjoy some holiday photos!

Cave and other strange looking rock formations near Vik, Iceland

Somewhat the symbol of Iceland, Puffin. This reminds me of an album called “a mouthful” from band called “The Do”

Vatnajökull glacier near Skaftafjell, Iceland

This broke off from the glacier just few hours before we were on a boat in Jökulsárlón glacier lake. First the glacial ice is blue and in few hours it turns into milky white.

Reykjavik is full of great murals and graffitis. Definitely worth a visit!

Tamok episode finished

Just finished editing the latest episode of Relate To It. It will be released in few days at TWSNOW website. Tamok episode was definitely toughest to edit so far, we had stuff from all over the mountains and it wasn`t easy job to make it work together. Had to leave some good stuff out to keep things short and entertaining. Tamok is the place to be if you want it all. It has great treeruns, high alpine stuff like couloirs and insanely steep runs, open fields of powder with over 1000m vertical, windlips, cornices and stuff to jump from and you can actually find couple of crazy rails if you don´t find enough to do in the mountains… On top of that, you can surf in the nearby freezing waters of Norwegian Sea.

I spent almost three weeks in Tamok and we had many different crews and riders stopping by. Here are some photos, if you want to see more check out facebook photos as well

Now thats a fine machine

Tamokfjellet from the air

On the top of Blåbärfjellet, clockwise from left: Rami, Miikka, Antti, Nicholas and Arto lurking behind

Shooting from the machine is never easy, me and Rami Hanafi doing our best to get things done. Monopod helps to keep my camera steady and makes it easier for your hands to hold for long periods, kinda like shoulder mount.

We had only couple of days with the heli, and then you just hike...

Antti slashing some Tamok powder

Weather changes fast in Tamok. It was raining and during the night "Huset" was drowning with 30cm of water in front of the house. Next day we had 15cm of new snow at the bottom and 50+ cm at the top!

Our cosy cabin under the northern lights


Photos for Northwave/Drake catalog

Northwave/Drake used some of my photos from last season in their catalog. I also took some shots just for this back in november.

I was asked to shoot Antti setting up his new binding, not bindings because we had only one to work with!

Original shot



This photo was part of exhibition called Harhalaukaus. It was on display at Bar Kuka in Turku last year and at bar Cafe&Pint also in Turku this year. It contained photos from seven different photographers. Photos were eventually sold in auction for charity.

Harhalaukaus, “misfire” or  actually “missed shot” in english was about accidentally taken or somehow ruined photographs that otherwise would have been considered useless.

My photo was taken at Scrapbook sessions 2008 in Rovaniemi. Shot was meant to be a backlit photo of snowboarder Miikka Hast. I snapped a photo with my old Yashica D, on the background I saw Teo Konttinen spitting water on the kicker and thought that I needed another, this time clean shot of Miikka. I forgot to advance film and took another photo double exposing them by accident. Result you can see above. I think it is much more interesting this way though.
