About Ron Willbie
Ron Willbie, husband to Sally Anne Thompson joined Animal Photography in 1975 and specialised in 'catching the moment' and action shots. His work has contributed to many of the more candid shots in our collection. He was also much appreciated by Sally for taking over the donkey work in the darkroom as she never found any fun in mixing chemicals and developing films.
Ron was originally a flyer in the Air Force and a glider pilot, is an amateur painter of aircraft. From his earliest days his ambitions centered on flying and pictures and he thinks himself lucky to have been so involved in both.
His family's dog was always a Lancashire Heeler - they even owned one when all the dog books said they were extinct! Sally and Ron live on the Isle of Wight and have two rescued greyhounds and will always mourn their much loved Norfolk Terrier, ‘Kevin’.
