Jon Dee returns to Collington with his amazing photos of wild animals. This show, his fifth at Collington, will be up in the library corridor until December. Jon loves both to travel and to take photographs, a fortunate blend producing travel photos ranging from Alaska to South Africa.
Beyond simply being alert, he has captured action through a combination of being in the right place at the right time and taking many shots, a practice encouraged by his use of digital photography. One outstanding picture in the show caught a killer whale breaching next to his boat in Alaska.
Jon often carries two cameras, allowing his use of lenses with different characteristics without having to remove and attach lenses in the middle of a shoot.
The son-in-law of Collington residents Anne and Herb Stone, he considers himself a snowbird, with a condo in Arizona. Future trips may take him to our national parks.
