->> Olympic Photographer Blogs only Please!!

I am very aware that there are many multi and single photographer Blogs out there but my hope is that this thread will stay contained and on track to highlight links to just the photographers that are working the Winter Olympics in Torino Italy and have Blogs.

For general photographer Blog links check out and post them on these recent threads. Thanks in advance for keeping this thread Olympic photographer Blog related only;

"Photoblogs" Now full at 50 posts;

"Photoblogs2" Still space available";
http://www.sportsshooter.com/message_display.html?tid=18948


This thread is an extension of a post I made on the Western Canadian News Photographers Association bulletin board about WCNPA member, Vancouver B.C. based Globe and Mail staff photographer John Lehmann who recently added a Blog to his already impressive websites
http://www.lehmann.ca and http://www.filmlessphotos.ca

That WCNPA thread is here;
http://www.morisoncom.com/forums/messageview.cfm?catid=2&threadid=1515

John's plan is to update his Blog daily during the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino Italy............ or as time and workload permits.

You can find the Blog link on his two sites mentioned above and the direct link is here:
http://filmlessphotos.blogspot.com

Now do you have or do you know of other Winter Olympics related photographer Blogs?

Cheers;

->> These blogs are a great recourse for those that want to learn more about what it takes to cover an event like this.

Maybe for some it can create so photographer's envy as they stay home working on the regular day to day stuff at work or at school that everyone does while several 100 shooters take part in covering the Torino Olympics but hey if you want to make it to the big show one day these blogs can be very helpful in gaining some inside info.

Anymore Olympic photographer blogs out there?
