M.Photog., Cr.Photog., CPP
Ron is a photographer, coach, entrepreneur. He started with photography in Junior High School. He learned all about photo processing, lighting and then enrolled in a mail order course that he eventually got my degree from. While doing that, he couldn’t decide on Photography, Ministry, Music or Science. He chose photography after studying music and business. He led a Worship Team and studied nature with his Photography. Win-Win! Ron is always looking to be ahead of the curve on new techniques both photographically as well as in his custom frame shop. Over the past almost 40 years in business; he has watched both the number of Professional Photographer Studios and Professional Frame Shops dwindle, while the part-timers numbers increase. Ron believes education is still key and better than that; personal learning (hands on) from one who knows is the best.
