Shooting for the Ryerson Eyeopener, or, "The Eye" as it was affectionately called, was a lot of fun and it gave me an opportunity to cut my teeth in the news photography business. I only shot for the paper for one and a half semesters as I left Ryerson mid term in my second year to pursue a lucrative job working as a full time photographer for the Ontario Jockey Club race track standard-bred division. I saw no reason to continue studying to be a photographer when I had secured a full time, well paying job in the profession, so, not without some hesitation and reluctance, I left Ryerson for good to work at the track. Almost all of my work for "The Eye" has been lost to the ages, but here are a few clippings of my efforts from that time. You can click on any image to enlarge it to full screen.
