When I was 15 I decided being a rock musician could possibly be a rewarding career choice. When I discovered the field was a little more crowded than I realized I put that idea on hold. Two years later on a road trip from Vancouver to Southern California, I fell in love with photography after my father loaned me his old 'Tower' rangefinder 35mm camera. This was the beginning of a life long love affair with photography. I saved my money until I could buy my first 35mm Canon FT SLR, I was thoroughly hooked! In the 80's & 90's after two decades of large format 21/4 x 2.1/4, 4"x 5" & 8" x 10" film photography I switched to digital in 2003 and have fully embraced digital photography and absolutely love this medium. I love what digital photography is now and look forward to what it will bring to photography in the future.
I thoroughly enjoy the creative process of this craft, for studio photography it is the lighting, propping and creating the look to initiate an interesting environment. I feel this gives the viewer an emotional attachment to food, beverage or product. Styles, trends and equipment change but the process of creating great imagery doesn't. It takes planning, experience, collaboration, clear communication, vision, plus hard work, & execution....that never changes.
Ross will be leading a small group of travel photographers to Tanzania in Africa January 14-25, 2019.
Tanzania’s Serengeti Great Migration birthing period is one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles in the world, and the crater floor of the extinct volcano at Ngorongoro Crater is a game viewing environment that has no equal. Towering above it all is Mt. Kilimanjaro.
