Dallas Cowboys book features local photographer

Herb Noseworthy

The Super Bowl was played in the Dallas area a few weeks ago and coincidentally, a Christina Lake resident has a connection with the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys recently released the book America’s Team, which chronicles the last 50 years of the NFL team and Herb Noseworthy, who worked as a photographer for the Cowboys from 1965 to 1971, has a number of photographs in the coffee table book.

Noseworthy says that he was living in California for a number of years and worked for the Cowboys during summer training and during games played on the West Coast, collecting the pictures he took.

“About a year ago I turned them over to the Cowboys and they found them quite useful,” Noseworthy says – they incorporated six or seven photos into the book.

He says he got to be friends with quite a few of the players.

“I had freedom to roam through as they were practicing or whatever they were doing,” he says. “I’d just roam around and take candid shots.”

Noseworthy says that having his photos in this book is special “because of the fact that it fits in with the history of the Cowboys.”

Noseworthy was also working for the Dallas Star newspaper at the time and in the past has also worked at the Grand Forks Gazette as a photographer.

Noseworthy has also worked on set decoration in Hollywood and Vancouver.

He worked on shows such as MacGyver.

He was recently honoured by the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage and Plays with a gold card, which provides a small pension.

He also no longer has to pay union dues.

The card is awarded only to those with over 25 years in the film business and 75 years or older.

Noseworthy says that as far as photography is concerned he will always shoot pictures; he’s just not sure what he’ll do with them.
