Ron's avid interest in scuba diving led naturally to photographing underwater images for himself and others to enjoy. Through his photographs, he hopes not only to share his appreciation of the beauty of the underwater world but also to inspire others to protect and preserve that fragile environment. Since 1970, his diving excursions have taken him to some of the best diving sites throughout the world, including Truk Lagoon in Micronesia, Palau and Yap in the Caroline Islands, the Philippine Islands, the Andaman Sea, Okinawa, Guam, Thailand, the Mediterranean Sea, Japan, the Turks and Caicos Islands, Cozumel, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, Bonnaire, Curacao, the Florida Keys and the North Atlantic.
He has presented several multimedia programs about diving to a number of organizations. Continental and China Airlines as well as the Taiwan tourism Bureau have published his work. He is a member of the Caloosa Dive Club in Cape Coral and has won several awards in its annual photo contest as well as in Cape Coral Art League shows. Currently his photographs can be seen on several web sites advertising diving and underwater photography in various parts of the world. Ron has contributed his photographs to the annual Arts for ACT auction and CREW, and displays periodically in local banks and the Cape Coral Public Library.
Ron resides in Cape Coral, FL, with his wife and diving partner, Lynne. He is a diving instructor for NAUI, PADI, and CMAS, and is a member of BIG ARTS, the Cape Coral Art League, and the Venice Art Center. His photography is displayed at WildChild Art Gallery in Matlacha.
