If you haven't heard the name Claus Andersen, do some digging and see what you find. He is simply incredible. A major amount of his work is for private clients, but you'll find his hockey up on Getty. Unbeatable at track and field, hockey, and damn near untouchable at most other sports. Also a really wonderful man who has helped dozens of younger shooters learn about the craft.

A nice profile piece of him in the Toronto Star last weekend.

Does he have a website, IG or portfolio somewhere?

Paul,

Claus is one of the very small handful of people making a living shooting sports almost full time. He's got a group of core clients who have been hiring him for literally decades. Word gets around... he doesn't miss and always delivers. He also puts just about posts nothing online in galleries/portfolios because of the way digital images bleed into the ether and lose value. He's got a point, but one that you can only follow if you have his client base.

Skip the first seven photos and you get his 'run of the mill' hockey work here:

He was kind enough to list some of his 2008 Olympic work with us at Mundo Sport Images, and the link can be found here:

A Q&A with him is here:

One of my faves all time is and continues to be, Sascha Fromm. Check his work out on IG.

Fromm's work is really lovely, especially the bunny-chase pictures. He also seems to have an interesting sideline in truck accidents. Really nice work.
