PICTURE OF THE WEEK S01E06

The sun has finally started to look out from behind the clouds after a long and harsh winter, but it´s not only the sun that spreads heat & light. Last weekend the teenage idol Justin Bieber lit hearts on fire when he gave a concert in Herning, Denmark. According to eb.dk the 12 000 “Beliebers” (Justin Bieber fans) screamed so loud after a certain Mr. Bieber that it was impossible to hear anything at all.

Ekstra Bladet spoke with several fans who had queued for hours and their message was clear: We love Bieber!

Mobility is key

You were able to follow the entire spectacle from the lens of the Ekstra Bladet photographer Claus Bonnerup. With the ability to move freely (without carry around a computer, etc) Claus was totally mobile when he produced a live photo feed including photos of the fans queued up for the concert and the concert itself.

Ekstrabladet, Denmark-Croatia handball

Denmark has taken medals in the last four handball European championships but this year turned out to be different. Croatia crushed the Danes’ dreams of a 2010 championship medal and they have to leave Germany without any medals. Croatia is now facing a semi-final against Poland and the Danes’ has one game left to compete for a fifth place. The Ekstra Bladet photographer Lars Poulsen LIVE published photos straight from Vienna to eb.dk.ebhanbollEfter att ha tagit medaljer i de fyra senaste Europamästerskapen fick Danmark lämna Tyskland med en krossad EM- dröm. De sköts ut med 23-27 av Kroatien som nu är i semifinal mot Polen. Danskarna får nu nöja sig med att på Lördag spela om en femteplats. Ekstrabladets fotograf Lars Poulsen direktpublicerade bilder från ödesmatchen.

At the end of August Shoot It Live teamed up with Canon and went to Copenhagen to meet newspapers and to promote live publishing. The danish surprised us when describing their need to live publish photos and the various creative (but not that successful) attempts in the past.

It didn’t take too long before Ekstra bladet, which is one of Scandinavia’s leading newspapers, signed up to become the first danish Shoot It Live user. And they have recently made their first live coverage with Shoot It Live.

In true Ekstra bladet style, they kicked it off big time as they covered the world boxing champion Mikkel Kesslers fight against the American Andre Ward in a battle in the Super Six tournament straight from Las Vegas.

The photographer Thomas Sjørup managed to publish 26 images before the match suddenly stopped by the doctors as Mikkel Kessler incurred an eye injury. Among the outstanding photos you’ll find the legendary Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich cheering for his fellow countryman.ekstra_web

I slutet av augusti åkte Shoot It Live tillsammans med Canon för att träffa en massa tidningar i Köpenhamn för att promota LIVE publicering, Danskarna överraskade oss genom att vara väldigt intresserade och visade flera kreativa (men dessvärre inte så framgångsrika) försök till LIVE publicering de tidigare gjort. Det var såklart väldigt kul att se att våra grannar i söder är så intresserade av LIVE publicering.

Det tog inte lång tid innan Ekstra Bladet, som är en av Skandinaviens ledande tidningar, signade upp och blev Shoot It Live’s första danska kund. Och de har nyligen gjort sin första live bevakning med Shoot It Live.

I sann Ekstra Bladet style sparkade de igång sin första LIVE bevakning storskaligt när de bevakade boxningsvärldsmästaren Mikkel Kesslers fight mot amerikanen Andre Ward i Super Six turneringen i glammiga Las Vegas.

Fotografen Thomas Sjørup lyckats publicera 26 bilder innan matchen plötsligt stoppades av läkare när Mikkel Kessler fick en ögonskada. Bland Thomas bilder hittar man Metallicas legendariska trummis Lars Ulrich hejades på sin landsman.
