Roy Tash csc was a pioneer cinematographer who began filming news footage in Chicago in 1915 and moved to Toronto to work with Blaine Irish (on, e.g., the Camera Classics series and photographing the feature’s Satan’s Paradise).

In 1925 he was the official photographer on the Canadian government’s annual expedition to the eastern Arctic. He joined Associated Screen News in 1925 and remained there throughout the rest of his career, shooting footage for all the major American newsreels (including the filming of the Dionne quintuplets in 1932), and some documentaries, including several Canadian Cameos. He went on to become one of the founding members of the CSC in the late 50’s.
