Yesterday I was shooting a new sport for me, sailing. It was interesting gig as you really have to watch out the salt water not getting into your camera gear. I was mainly using a water housing to capture these images for Vacon Group. Thanks to olympic sailors Mikaela Wulff and Julia Toroi to make my job easy even the conditions were bit tricky. Also not to mention my colleague, Blumi, who did good job as an assistant. I also filmed a little video, the edit will come out soon. Good times in Helsinki

I have had this little treasure for years now. It was handed to me by my grandpa who really liked fishing but not so much with the reels. I never really used this one as it is not the best one for fishing these days. Anyways there are all the original repair kit, oil..etc left. It is very exciting open the box and look at the Reel and the kit. The original swedish Abu.

Geraldine Fasnacht and Julien Meyer made history on saturday to be first two base jumpers to jump from the Matterhorn, Zermatt (summit). I was the lucky photographer to witness this amazing moment. I was definitely nervous before the jump but seeing  them to fly down was kind of relaxing and powerful moment. Thanks to Buonasera productions to put this together and invite me and my friend Tim Burgess to capture the jump. More news and video coming soon. Congrats Geraldine and Julien.

It has been a great week. First some great snow sport photos in Zermatt followed by a three day family holiday in Legoland Germany. I never used to realise how important the holidays were. This one really opened my eyes. Just a simple camping trip can bring so much joy into your life. I really wanna do it again soon.

Normally may is the best time to shoot free riding at the Alps. This year it has been a struggle for me. Wrong time at wrong place. Today we tried to shoot some faces close to Verbier. No love again. Tomorrow is going to be a sick day in Zermatt. The very first time for years I said no. I am going to spend a day with family instead shooting some snowboarding and skiing. I really hope the crew will nail it tomorrow, they definitely deserve it.

Nico Zacek is the guy behind the 9Knights event. When he asked me in Ispo to join the event, I didn’t hesitate to give a positive reply. This is hands  down the best and most powerful event in the freestyle skiing. Thanks again Nico. Hopefully see you soon ;) Nico, this is you. you still got it!

Photo shoot with Faction skis today in La Clusaz, France. Here is my assistant and Faction employee Matthieu. He did really well, I guess I owe him a beer or two. Thanks for everyone for a great day. I really hope you guys will have another good session tomorrow. -Tero
ps. Made it in 2h10mins from Clusaz to Verbier with quick pit stop in MC-D in Megeve.

Oh boy it was windy today. Besides that it is always nice be part of the Freerideworldtour.com finals in Verbier. Maybe you guys have better idea how the riding was today as I was taking photos at the start gate and couldn’t see the actual runs. I will watch them this week as I heard there was some pretty epic lines to be done today. Thanks for everyone. Party hard tonight. My journey continues to Italy tomorrow morning. More updates soon…

This one the coolest photo shoots for while. As I really like playing ice hockey I was super excited to shoot crashed ice athletes few weeks ago. We didn’t shoot any action but in two days we captured lot of lifestyle and portraits. During those days I really started to understand the sport more. In few words: Skier cross with hockey gear on (no sticks)

Thanks for the Swatch pro team for the efforts in front of the camera and Daniel for organising the shoot. Some of the photos were taken in industrial freezer where temperature dropped to -18 celsius.

What a great day for the hockey yesterday. The mighty Polar Bears won Wolves 9-1. Finland won the world championships by beating Sweden (under 20 yrs).

About five years ago I was honoured to meet two very talented young skiers: Tom Wallisch and Henrik Harlaut. It was a mini road trip to Stockholm and Helsinki with Field production crew. It was my first time to follow a big urban ski shoot. The level that Tom and Henrik were already 2008 was amazing, and most important these guys were such a hard workers. Really good memories. Thank Field Productions to invite me on that trip.

TWS Photo Annual 2014 is out. I didn’t manage to score the front cover in third time in row but I am really excited about this full page shot of Xavier DLR. It doesn’t have to be a bluebird, knee deep powder day to get the shot.

Exactly one year ago I took this photo during the most mind blowing trip to Antarctica. Stay tuned for the film, which will be released soon.
