ABOUT RON SANTINI
For me photography is a form of personal expression. It evokes a sense of joy, discussion, a lasting impression, or discovery for those who view my work.
I started my photography journey during my time in the US Military in the late 1960’s. While stationed in Spain I purchased by first camera. This led to my interest in photography. It took off with the introduction of digital photography in the 1980’s. This opened many new avenues for me from improvements in equipment to post processing of images. In the early 2000’s my professional career as an environmental scientist came to an end. Photography then filled the void and has been an influential part of daily activities since.
I continue to have a deep interest for the environment. Because of this interest my photography focuses on the natural world and abandoned or historic buildings and locations. As a result, photographing a stunning landscape, capturing wildlife in action, or telling a story about conservation or abandoned Americana is a wonderful, never ending journey. Being able to share that journey with others brings a sense of satisfaction and joy that keeps me fully engaged.
