Thank you for your patience while we retrieve your images.
Ninety-nine percent of the images I ever shot that appeared in the Toronto Star have been lost to the ages. Almost all of them were from my time at the Ontario Jockey Club race tracks "Greenwood" (no longer existent) and "Mowhawk", and were of standard-bred horse racing action. One particular shot I captured that I kept the strip of negatives for was of a terrible harness racing crash that occurred on July 23rd 1983 right at the finish line. I got the image with a Canon F-1 and 135mm manual focus prime lens. The shot was my only front page for the Toronto Star. Never having worked for the paper as a staff photographer I'm happy with having had at least one shot on the front page. A few of the other images are of a community page called "Have Your Say" where readers were invited to submit human interest images for consideration. I was a regular contributor to the column and I had a few images published in it.
