Willy Waterton
Photographing the land and people for over 40 years
A creek still bears the family name where Willy’s ancestors settled in northern Grey County during the 1840’s. A self taught photographer,
Willy Waterton spent 35 years as a full-time photojournalist at the Owen Sound Sun Times. During his tenure as chief photographer, he oversaw the transition from black and white to colour then finally to digital. His newspaper photographs won over 100 provincial and national awards. In 1990, Willy was named Ontario News Photographers’ Association Photographer of the Year. His photographs have appeared in national and international magazines, newspapers and books including the Globe and Mail, New York Times and National Geographic. His work is in public and private collections.
Willy’s life long love for Bruce & Grey Counties along with recent expeditions to polar regions has led to a commitment, through his photography, to interpret these special parts of the world for you to enjoy and help protect.
