Sky’s no limit for Jon

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Photography - By JES­SICA NICO

JON Dav­i­son has a pho­to­graphic flair for tak­ing breath­tak­ing sights and turn­ing them into amaz­ing pic­tures.

The cre­ator of Eye in the Sky might ap­pear to love his ‘boys’ toys’, snap­ping vin­tage and mod­ern air­planes as well as work­ing and mil­i­tary ships, but it is his work from the air that sets him apart.

Dav­i­son takes his cam­era ev­er­where, shoot­ing well­known sites from thou­sands of me­tres in the air, in­clud­ing the Bun­gle Bungles, the Great Bar­rier Reef, a lava flow in Hawaii and Angkor Wat in Cam­bo­dia.

He said he en­joyed jump­ing on board an R44 or AS350 he­li­copter to take pho­tos of the scenery be­low.

“My main love is shoot­ing from the open door of a he­li­copter or air­craft,” he said.

“Shoot­ing from a fast jet to an­other one is awe­some.

“I love shoot­ing any­thing that is mov­ing and I love the earth from above.”

Hav­ing worked for com­pa­nies such as Ber­litz, AA Guides and Lonely Planet, Dav­i­son’s work has taken him all over the world, but he still rates north­ern WA as one of his favourite places to snap.
