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.
He passed away in 2016 surrounded by his loving wife and children.
About MegaPixelTravel: Our current project involves consolidating 10,000+ on-line photos into the blog format of the www.megapixeltravel.com website. Work continues on that project with new material, as well as material previously posted elsewhere, being added almost daily. Ron has been approached about developing some tour packages. Nothing has been finalized in that regard but he is considering some options.
About the Music Cassettes: Over time, Ron has accumulated a significant number of music cassettes which he listens to while processing and uploading photos. Tough to tell what genre of music he might be listening to at any given time but if it’s on cassette you know that it is at least 5 years old! :-). One of Ron’s other rainy-day projects is to photograph the cassette inserts and include them along with a track list as an easy reference point for those who have an interest in ‘older’ music. You can follow the progress of that project here: Cassettes – 2600+ and counting
