Sports Photographer Crowdfunding the Digitizing of his Tampa Bay Lightning Collection

A sports photographer is holding a Kickstarter to crowdfund the digitizing of his Tampa Bay Lightning photography. From the page: “This is Jon Hayt and I would like to first introduce myself as I was the Team Photographer for the Tampa Bay Lightning NHL Hockey Team that was formed in 1992 during the early 90’s expansion phase of the NHL. I was the team photographer from 1992 early 2000 and all of my photography was shot on Fujichrome 100 ISO color slide film shot under arena strobe lights set up in the catwalks of the various arenas and triggered from my camera to create beautiful high quality color images of the game and players…. I am estimating that there will be around 10,000 images scanned and ready for archiving. My goal is to place this archive with the Hockey Hall of Fame up in Toronto Canada so that it can be shared with current and future fans, players and the folks that were part of the early years of this team.”
