Kevin Leclaire, Ultimate PhotographerKevin Leclaire, Ultimate PhotographerCovering YULA in 2015.

In a land long, long ago when film was all there was and before UltiPhotos was a glint in anyone’s eye, there was Rick Collins.  He sat on a milk crate at the edge of the fields and blew everyone away with how good his photos were.  Every year he made a calendar to support his habit, and they were glorious.

 

Then there was Bil Elsinger, who attached an umbrella to his stick when it rained and did a slideshow for the parties at Potlatch, Andrew Davis, who loved Superfly, the kind and talented Matt Lane.  Chasing Plastic was the only print outlet so it was a labor of love to shoot ultimate, and it was expensive.  If you got a sandwich or a t-shirt it was a really good day.

 

Canadian Ultimate was the first to cover travel expenses, USAU and WFDF followed suit a few years later.

 

Neil Gardner came from New Zealand and brightened every field, Hart Matthews brought his media outlet experience.  Rick vanished, Bil left for law school, Andrew and Matt married their loves and the wheel went around.  I was about done myself, and in that vacuum appeared Kevin Leclaire and his brainchild, UltiPhotos.

 

His idea of collecting and organizing photographers, arranging for sensible compensation and handling all those tricky details was something I’d dreamt of for years.  When I finally talked to him I told him how I’d been chanting like a mantra that what we needed was someone with a degree from Harvard to pull this thing together.  His answer?  “Well, actually. . . .”

 

He has a degree from Harvard.

 

Thanks, Leclaire.
