About Ron

Me and my Currituck

I play badminton in the winter and soccer in the summer, take photographs whenever and wherever, and like to get out in my sea/touring kayak from time to time. Of course, I like to travel and so does my camera. With each outing, my series of available travelogue presentations increases, especially when international travel is involved.

If the weather is nice, then I hope I’m out photographing something interesting!

More about Ron

Ron has an interest in theatre, was Founding Director of the Amateur Cumberland Theatre Society and served for a period of time as the Northern Area representative for the Eastern Ontario Drama League. Educationally, Ron has a BSc and an MBA in Finance/Marketing.

Ron has long had an interest in photography and traveling and since retiring from a position of Director, Client Services, has had more time to devote to both activities. Now retired from his regular career, he is spending more time on his photography. Ron is definitely 50+ and is now being asked to show his i.d. again!!! – to verify that he qualifies for advertised discounts :-)!

The advent of the digital SLR camera, and the ease of the internet blogging process, has provided a venue for sharing of Ron’s photography and travel experience at the local, national and international level. Ron enjoys adding insight into many of the subjects that he photographs and, wherever feasible, adds an educational component to the postings. Ron continues his interest in public speaking with a series of entertaining and informative travelogue presentations. His individual photos continue to be in demand, with frequent requests from publishers, individuals, and both for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises. A significant number of Ron’s bird photos are in on-line databases with international scope. Ron has been approached about developing some tour packages. Nothing has been finalized in that regard but he is considering some options.

I appreciate the comments on my photos and travel blogs and am happy that modern technology allows me to share these around the world. I enjoy taking photos of many interesting things especially natural life all around me. Sometimes my images will reflect my sense of humour. Hope they make you smile.
