    Sad news, I've seen his name a lot and his photographs were beautiful. But I'm not sure to know who he was, was he at canadians just last week-end? If so, I might know who he was, a guy who seemed to really enjoy skating and talked a lot to the skaters!

    Barry Mittan contributed many fine articles to Golden Skate. I will always remember his work and his photographs fondly. What a tragedy.

    Very shocked to read this. He was definitely someone I looked up to as a photographer. He was very good to work with when I did skater websites, too. He had been encouraging me a lot lately on my sports photography. He will be missed. Praying for his family and friends during this time. :cry:

    So sorry to hear of Barry's untimely passing. I knew him and his excellent skating photography over the past 15 years. He retired from skating photography a couple of years ago.
