Ian MacAlpine
PROJECTS
Ian MacAlpine is a multimedia journalist and photo/video coordinator for the Kingston Whig-Standard. He started photography as a hobby as most people probably did. When he was younger, he liked going to Montreal Canadiens games so he would buy a ticket and take pictures with my camera and telephoto lens. While working as an office clerk at CP Rail in Montreal he had a contact at work that was friends with a writer with The Hockey News. When Ian met the writer, he was given a photo pass for the Canadiens games at the Montreal Forum. With the photo pass, he was then able to produce photos for The Hockey News and get published. At the games all the photographers hung out together in a common room. There he met some great guys who showed me the ropes on how to be a local freelancer. Ian was in photography school at the time (1978) and it was great to learn to be a photojournalist and get paid at the same time. During a very busy time in Montreal (early 1980’s) he was able to build up a respectable portfolio.
