From Cordoba to official photographer of the world champion
Juan Gasparini is from Cipoletti, Rio Black, but has lived in Córdoba since 2008. He came to study Physical Education at Ipef and played rugby at Córdoba Rugby. Until he injured his waist and in 2008 he had to move away from the courts. Not for long, though. “Following in my dad’s footsteps, in 2010 I started taking pictures of my classmates. We sucked photography as small and grew up between cameras at home”, acknowledged the photographer.
“ Passionate about rugby, I started taking pictures at different levels and in 2011 I started working for some clubs in Córdoba,” he said.
His way took him to New Zealand 2011, England 2015 and Japan 2019 to take pictures in the respective world cups. And in the latter, which consecrated South Africa as champion, he lived an “unthinkable” experience.
His path as a free lance photographer brought him closer to contacts from all over the world and “Gaspa” knew how to take advantage of them. Since 2016 he has joined the Argentine Rugby Union, which is the photo agency he shares with his brother Pablo. This is an official supplier of Los Pumas since 2017 and was also a supplier of the Jaguares franchise in its first campaign. Also from different editions of the National Club Tournament and Interior Tournament .
He came to the recent World Cup in Japan as an official photographer of the selected Argentine. But with the experience on the back of the two ecumenical appointments , made a key decision.
“ I knew I had to stay until the end, beyond what Los Pumasdid. I have clients from all over the world that I cover for when the selected ones come to play here. So I took the ticket back after the final,” said who thought Los Pumas would make it to the quarterfinals.
But it was not so, and with the early elimination of those led by Mario Ledesma, Juan began “to activate contacts”.
“ I covered the quarterfinals for Ireland, and I was also hired by the Gallo Imagen Agency of South Africa. It is the agency of South Africa’s largest sports images and provides images to the Union South African Rugby. I started with them during the quarterfinals,” he said.
“ I was among the top 10 photographers in the world, moving the way I wanted. Celebrations in the locker room, players, medals, cup… until the Prince Harry to greet the players and that was amazing,” he reviewed “Gaspa.”
And he said, “It was all party weather, and I was there, among all those. We were just two photographers in the intimacy of that wardrobe: one from World Rugby and myself. Unthought.”
