Photographer’s Q&A – Claus Andersen

Based in London, Ontario, photographer Claus Andersen is one of the few Canadian photographers who shoots sports almost exclusively. He’s been covering both pro sports and international sporting events for almost 40 years: NHL, NBA, CFL, PGA, LPGA, Olympics, World Track and Field Championships, Commonwealth Games, Pan-Am Games, harness racing, London Knights team photographer and more.

His interest in sports, especially track and field, may have started when he competed as a runner in high school track competitions. But his interest in photography started much earlier.
