In Ron’s own words:
“I’m a visual storyteller. I always say, “Do what you can’t help but do“ and for me, that is to capture the BEAUTY and CHARACTER in the people I meet and the places I travel to. I love to shoot in nature, especially landscapes and wildlife. Recently I have been very fortunate to be able to build my portfolio of images from the extreme regions of the planet. Both the Arctic and Antarctica.
I love to explore the natural world, photograph the people in it and teach others to do the same.
I have the best job in the world!”
