Canadian Press Photogrpher Tom Hanson Passes Away.

->> With sadness I share news that Canadian Press Ottawa photographer Tom Hanson passed away suddenly while playing hockey last night, Tuesday, March 10.
While Tom wasn't a sportsshooter member I'm sharing it here because many of us have shot along side him at Olympics, Summits, G8s, hockey playoffs and many other trips.
Tom, a Canadian Press staff photographer based in Ottawa 16 years was a fierce competitor when shooting alongside him, but, also a considerate collegue who would offer advice and help when needed.
My condolences to his family and his team at CP.

->> I would like to express my deepest and sincerest sympathy to Tom's family and friends in this time of grief.
Although I did not know him, I did enjoy some of his work.
He was a great asset to this profession and I am sure he will be sadly missed by all of his family and friends as well as all his colleagues.

->> I too would like to express my condolences to Tom Hanson's family and friends. I did not know him well ,but we were both up for a NNA award in 2002 for spot news photography. I admired and respected both his work and his service to the craft. He will be missed by all, at too young of an age.
