Michael Willson is AFL Media’s senior photographer. He brings his love of the game to each match he photographs.
Born and raised in Swan Hill, a Sherrin (and camera) were never far from his hands. Growing up playing football with Lake Boga FC - including the famous 2003 drought breaking premiership—fostered a deep and lasting passion for the game.
Since the 2005 AFL season he has earned the respect and trust of players and clubs alike, creatively photographing all the action, triumph, heartbreak, blood, sweat and tears— often capturing moments otherwise unseen—from a unique perspective that can only come from an intimate knowledge and love for photography and Australian Football.
