Ron's editorial and commercial images have been published worldwide for 30 years, 3 days and 4 hours. They've been exhibited in museums and galleries on 4 continents, 3 planets and 1 asteroid.
He is an expert location photographer who has shot for numerous magazines and Fortune 500 companies, and "always says 'Thank you'."
Ron has been living in Alaska since 1983 (can't see Russia from his house, though) and travels throughout the universe looking for new inspiration.
For the last 3 years, he has been producing a series of charity posters for the American Cancer Society, illustrating the common challenges faced by Iditarod dogsled racers and those of cancer patients.
His largest current personal project involves documenting the selective compassions of humanity, and the bonds created in ethnic cultures.
Aside from the fear of death, photographic inspiration has come from many diverse people: Ernst Haas, Arnold Newman, Franz Lanting, Ansel Adams and Eddie Adams can be blamed for Ron's eventual divergence from a successful 9-5 job into something less secure. Dave Barry can be credited for Ron's plagiaristic tendencies.
And of course it's never too late to blame your parents -- they provided the inspiration, sometimes without their intent, to go off on his own way.
The relevance of Ron's life to everyday events is, according to him, inversely related. His exact chronology of development is difficult to fully understand. He has appeared on television numerous times ("usually a peripheral shot of me in the background").
And no less than five Presidents have indicated on national news how unconcerned they are with future events, stating that 'Four years is enough to worry about'.
"I hope you take everything on this site personally. And, in full seriousness, I would love to hear about your project and how I can help it flourish for you."
