Crabtree's foray into the film business came in 1939 when he met John Grierson, founder and head of the National Film Board of Canada, and received an offer from filmmaker Budge Crawley to shoot Bacon For Britain, a work highlighting the contributions of the country's agriculturalists to the war effort. Crabtree continued work for Crawley Films until 1950, and remained a freelancer with the NFB until the late 1970s. In 1969, Crabtree joined the National Research Council of Canada, producing images and films of scientific endeavors. Over the course of his career, Crabtree was involved in the making of more than 70 films, many of which were award-winning.


Crabtree's interest in photography began in 1928, when he obtained his first postcard print-size Kodak Camera. He soon joined a local camera club, where his annual contest submission, a portrait of his brother Graham, won first prize. Inspired by Edward Steichen’s Vanity Fair portraits, and encouraged by positive reaction to his work, Crabtree began his long career in photography, film and much more to be listed here.


Crabtree married Marjorie Dean Morse (September 9, 1921 – March 19, 2000) of Toronto in July 1950. The couple had two daughters, Lauren and Carla. In 1973, Crabtree purchased a farmhouse in East Margaree, Cape Breton Island, where he spent most of his time in the remainder of his life. An avid outdoorsman, Crabtree was an award-winning rower and downhill skier. In retirement, he continued his artistic pursuits, taking keen interest in nature and landscape photography and woodworking, producing furniture and crafts. He also produced his own maple syrup and assortment of jams, marmalade, and jellies. Crabtree was widowed following his wife's death in 2000. He continued to live in Cape Breton with his family until his death on October 14, 2008, after a four-month battle with illness. His two daughters, eight grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren survive him.
