It’s not often you get the chance to photograph some of your country’s best. I was lucky enough to get the chance to take part in a Nike photoshoot running up to the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Among the athletes I was shooting were Jarome Iginla, future captain of the Leafs Dion Phaneuf and women’s hockey star Gillian Apps.

Jarome

Dion

Dion Phaneuf, a rising star for the Calgary Flames, would unfortunately not make Team Canada this year. He is now the captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Gillian

Gillian Apps, granddaughter of hockey legend Syl Apps, helped lead Team Canada to gold in Vancouver 2010.
