Jon Haeber first picked up photography at the age of 16. His work has appeared in CollegeBound Magazine, National Geographic News, the Daily Californian, Amsterdam-based TED, and a high school Civics textbook.

TunnelBug and I first met through flickrMail. And before we knew it, we bumped into each other on an exploration trip, by complete accident. He is not only a great photographer but definitively one of the friendliest explorer you will ever meet. We had a great time exploring that day and I was fortunate enough to join him on some other trips. He knows tons about UE and I learned a lot from him. Thanks and keep up the good work!
