MadCraft at Tubecon 2016


It’s that time of year again! Tubecon—the biggest YouTube convention in Europe—is coming to Helsinki, Finland. And we’re performing!


Not only are we playing a ridiculously over-the-top show on the main stage, we’re also doing a bunch of other stuff, such as Meet & Greets, and being nominated in the Finnish YouTube Awards as well.

Now, Tubecon can be somewhat overwhelming with all the people there and the vastness of the different stuff going on. […] Read more!

Holy sh*t! We’re opening for Simple Plan


Holy sh*t! That is pretty much the way we felt when we got the word that we would be opening for Simple Plan. This Canadian 5-piece is probably one of the favorite bands of any Pop Punk fan. Obviously, we are huge fans of Simple Plan as well.


We are opening for Simple Plan at The Circus, Helsinki on Saturday May 28th. I believe you can still get tickets, if your quick. We will be announcing showtimes, once we know about them in more detail. […] Read more!

Pop Punk You’ve Never Heard But You Should Vol. 11

Yeah Detroit

Surprisingly Yeah Detroit is not from Detroit, it’s from Scotland (or everywhere…). Sadly these guys quit last year.



Allister has been around since 1996, which is like forever. Someone told me that Allister was one the biggest pop punk bands in early 00s. However, it’s really never heard in Finland, so that’s why it ends up to this list.


American Hi-Fi

American Hi-Fi has been called a pop band, a pop-punk band, a pop metal band, but it’s all just Rock n’ Roll to them. […] Read more!

Drum Cover Fisheye – Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5 Fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2

Samyang 7.5 mm, aspect ratio 4:3

With Canon 60D I’ve used Samyang 8 mm as my fisheye lens. Obviously, I needed a fisheye for Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2, and I had three options: Samyang 7.5 mm 3.5, Panasonic 8 mm 3.5 and Olympus 8 mm 1.8. It wasn’t an easy choice, but I ended up choosing Samyang 7.5 fisheye.

Olympus 8 mm 1.8 is definitely the best of these three, but it also costs the most. For the price of one Olympus one could buy 4 Samyangs, so I just couldn’t afford it right. […] Read more!

Pop Punk You’ve Never Heard But You Should Vol. 10


HEY it’s already the 10th episode of the less known pop punk bands! For some reason I’ve included six bands to this playlist.

Above The Underground

Above The Underground is from UK. Sometimes the singer reminds me of Billy Talent.


I Am Empire

I Am Empire comes from San Jose. This might not be that much pop punk, but their music is a bit like Piece The Veil. And hey, Vic Fuentes from Pierce The Veil feats in All Time Low’s A Love Like War! […] Read more!

Pop Punk You’ve Never Heard But You Should Vol. 9


It’s time for more pop punk!

It’s hard to find anything about betterLUCK, since Better Luck Next Time is such a big name in pop punk scene nowadays. You have to google the band name with their album name “hatelovelifeparty” in order to receive some relevant results. However, they come from Texas and here’s their MySpace page.


Your Favorite Franchise

Your Favorite Franchise is from Miami, Florida. They describe themselves as a proof that DIY mentality is more then viable way to be successful in music industry! […] Read more!

MadCraft Lightroom Preset Pack – Early 2016


I like to use Lightroom for editing the photos that I shoot on the road. For each event I try to create a different recognizable look, which I then save as a Lightroom presets. Usually I’ve shared only one preset at a time, but now I decided to gather all presets from late 2015 to early 2016 in one zip-file. I ended up with this period, because all of these presets were made for photos shot with Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark 2. […] Read more!

Pop Punk You’ve Never Heard But You Should Vol. 8

From Dawn To Fall

WHOA! It’s been so long since I actually picked these bands that I’m surprised how good From Dawn To Fall is! For some reason they call them selves FDTF. Another thing that surprises me that these guys come from Vienna, Austria. Before this I didn’t know any bands from Austria, I guess I should check out more of them.


Random Hero

Random Hero is from Colorado, and they describe their genre active rock, whatever that is. […] Read more!

Olympus M.Zuiko 45 mm f/1.8 for Music Concert Photography


To begin with, I have to say that I wasn’t even going to buy Olympus 45 mm 1.8 lens, which is the cheapest wide aperture lens Olympus has to offer. Not because it would be a bad lens, but because the focal length is hard for me. You can’t really use it indoors to shoot photos of your friends, because you can’t fit them into the picture unless you go very far away. Additionally, it’s not suitable for vlogs either, even if someone else is doing the talking, since at the time you get far enough from the talker, there too is too much reverb included. […] Read more!

Pop Punk You’ve Never Heard But You Should Vol. 7


I’ve been searching for new pop punk bands that I haven’t heard of before. I picked a band and checked its related artists. From those I picked up the ones that I liked the most and created pop punk playlists from them. Here’s playlist number 7!

Cute Is What We Aim For

Obviously “Never Heard” can be defined as “Never Played a Show Finland”. Cute Is What We Aim For has over one million likes in Facebook… What’s even more impressing, they had their song “There’s a Class for This” in NHL 07, so this can’t be bad! […] Read more!
