Shots Behind The Shots: Alongside an Olympic Photographer

Los Angeles Times staff photographers Robert Gauthier and Wally Skalij are in Vancouver, Canada, covering the 2010 Winter Olympics for the newspaper and other Tribune outlets. They are among hundreds of photographers from around the world shooting the Games. Skalij has shot three Summer Olympics and two Winter Games. For Gauthier, it is his first Winter Olympics, but he has covered two Summer Games. Because of the distance between the various venues, they have divided the events. Skalij mainly covers those in the mountains while Gauthier concentrates on events in the city and nearby. Here is a first-person account from Wednesday by Gauthier on what he went through before and after getting the shots. — Bryan Chan / Los Angeles Times SEE ALL
