WHEN it comes to AFL photography, few can do it better than Michael Willson.

As Chief Photographer of the AFL, Willson has captured moments of action, joy and heartache, earning the respect of the industry along the way.

With his first season being 2005, he has been on the scene from the beginning of Nathan Jones' career - and has plenty to show for it.

He shares his top 10 photos of Melbourne's milestone man, ahead of his 300th game this weekend.
