PanAm Games, Photo Manager

It’s been 18 months since I completed my stint as the Deputy Photo Manager at the London 2012 Olympics, and since then I have continued to run a few workshops, and shot a few commissions here and there.

The time has come to get back into Photo Management and so I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed as the Photo Services Manager for the PanAmerican Games in Toronto which will take place from July 10 – 26 2015, followed by the Parapan Games August 7 – 15.

I will again be posting regular updates to the sports venues with relevant photo information, attending the test events and providing background information.

I am now based in Toronto where the highest temperature since arriving has been -11 and the lowest down at -19, the lowest consistent March temperatures in many years. Just my luck.

This one is specially for my friends on Gabriola Island. At least there we don’t have to break the ice to get the ferry to run. Today was the 81st consecutive day the icebreaker had to break a route to the island – a record.
