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.

Photographer’s Q&A – David Lipnowski

Winnipeg-based photographer David Lipnowski started his photography career as the photo editor for his student newspaper at the University of Manitoba. He is currently a commercial photographer shooting portraits, corporate and personal events, family portraits, weddings and more.

A year ago on January 1, 2013, David started a personal project he called the 365 Portrait Project in which he promised to produce a new portrait each and every day throughout the year.

“Every single day during 2013 I will make one high quality portrait,” he vowed. “I am aiming to produce high quality portraits that look like they could come straight out of a magazine. I want the quality to stay consistently high throughout the year, with a broad range of photo subjects.”

01/01/2013 – Salwinder Singh – 4:19PM – Winnipeg – I was a little stressed about the first portrait of the year as I had made tentative plans to photograph someone I knew but that fell through at the last minute. So I started wandering around outside with my girlfriend.

Shortly after leaving my front door, I saw a taxi waiting to pick up someone. I noticed the driver’s beard first and I explained my project to him. He was glad to help out and I’m happy with the first portrait of this project.

My girlfriend held a homemade beauty dish with a hotshoe flash on his windshield while he sat in the car.
