BeCause & Effect #9: Ian McCausland

Ian McCausland has been a professional photographer for over 31 years. From studying photography in high school to taking photos for thousands of clients, Ian is one of the best and most respected in the business.

A lot can change in an industry in three decades – from developing photos in darkrooms to poloroids to the digital revolution – Ian has been through it all.

Aside from his career, he’s also a vocal proponent for positive change in the city. He ran for office in 2016 and he’s been a part of many movements in support of social change.

I sat down with Ian to talk about his upcoming Tedx Talk, his Fiftyx50 project, utilizing technology in the creative process, and the importance of telling stories through art.
