Niels Konge, Up Here Business Entrepreneur of the Year 2010

Congratulations to Niels Konge, who is named the 2010 Entrepreneur of the Year by Up Here Business this month.

I spent about a day photographing Niels for this cover story and I gotta say, the guy moves – fast! I had a hard time keeping up with Niels’ energy and pace. But what a great guy – he completely let me do my thing while he went about his work day (which includes managing several large construction jobs in Yellowknife and Iqaluit). For the images in the story, we wanted to take a “day in the life” approach, keeping a photojournalistic style with candid moments. For the cover, we did a 5 minute portrait session just behind his office in the freezing cold.

Anyway, enough with the nerdy photo stuff. Congratulations Niels – you, your family, employees and clients deserve the recognition!

Niels and his very loving and supportive wife, Renee

    Thanks Pat for the great photos. It is pretty cool to have your picture on the cover of a magazine, and I’m really glad that someone who knew what he was doing took the picture. Thanks again.
