Jorn is a retired Professor from the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies where he taught aerospace engineering and conducted research for 33 years.
He began bird photography in the early 1980’s, became a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) and began competing in International Salons; in 1983 placing 13th
in the PSA World Who’s Who ranking in Nature Photography based on bird photographs.
Jorn stopped bird photography for a number of years ; upon retirement in 2008 returned to this hobby with digital equipment. Rejoined the PSA in 2013 and resumed competing in International Salons in late 2013. In a little over two years of competition, he has received over 800 acceptances in International Salons, been awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals as well as many Honourable Mentions.
In 2014 he placed 3rd in the PSA Who’s Who ranking for Nature Photographers in North America. His acceptances have also lead to my being awarded the 1st to 5th Stars and the 1st to 5th Galaxy
in Nature Photography from the PSA.
