Steve Tambosso - "The Wandering Fireman" | The Toronto Sun
As with my images in the Toronto Star, most of my images published in the Toronto Sun have been lost to the ages as well. The only remaining clippings I have are a shot that I got from a tractor trailer crash that I passed on the highway while on my way home. The other clippings are from an award I won when I submitted an image I shot at a motorcycle hill climbing event at Hockley Hills, near Orangeville, in Ontario in 1980. I was 20 years old at the time and studying at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute (now...Ryerson University). The image was shot on a Canon F-1 body with a Vivitar 400mm manual focus prime lens. I won first place in the black and white division for all of the Canadian entries in the 1980 Kodak International Snapshot Awards contest. I won an additional "award of merit" for the shot in a separate judging category. You can click on any image to enlarge it to full screen.
