Obituary: Bill Carty 1908-2006

Bill Carty was one of Australia's first cinematographers.  He worked as a cameraman on The Term Of His Natural Life, spent many years with Cinesound and even spent time with Warners Bros in the US where he worked on prints of The Jazz Singer.  His real love and his most significant contribution to Australian cinema were documentaries and newsreels.  He started hs career working on newsreels and worked as a combat cameraman for Australia and America during WWII.

Anyway, it says it all in his obituary printed in The Sydney Morning Herald today.
