Speaking Engagements

Ron is available to provide a wide range of photography lectures/talks. Topics can cover techniques, composition or his many travel destinations, particularly his home state of Alaska or Antarctica, a place Ron has visited 6 times. In the past, Ron has done everything from an hour presentation, to an all day presentation. Ron's experience, humor and high energy have made his presentations very popular. Contact us to arrange for Ron to speak to your group.

Due to Covid-19 Ron has not yet scheduled any in person speaking engagements for 2021. But is looking forward to getting back to in person talks as soon as it is safe to do so, and meeting more photographers!

In 2020 Ron held these photography lectures:

January 13, 2020 Casa Grande Camera Club Animalscapes!

March 5, 2020 Sun Lakes Camera Club Animalscapes and Alaska!

Some popular lecture topics are listed below, but Ron is open to any photography based topic.

Ron will talk about the techniques and strategies he uses to combine his two favorite passions, landscape photography and wildlife photography. The results are images much different than the typical wildlife images created with long telephoto lenses. Not only can these techniques make your images unique, but it doesn’t require big expensive lenses, these concepts can even be applied to a cell phone camera!

Ron has spent more than 40 years exploring and photographing Alaska and will share his favorite locations and tips for going about photographing these locations. If you have never been to Alaska, or have been many times and are looking for something new and different, then this presentation is for you. Even well known destinations like Denali National Park can be challenging to photograph, and Ron’s tips will improve your chances of being successful.

Camera Trapping
Ron has extensive experience using camera traps and remotes with wildlife photography. Remotes and traps are the tools producing much of the new and exciting images these days - look no further then many of the winners of wildlife competition.

Ron has made six trips to either Antarctica, South Georgia or both over the last decade. Ron can talk about his favorite places, how to photograph them and the best ways to get there.
