Seminar

Details

In his talk, Ron will recount the events of September 11th and discuss his images from that day. He will also talk about his 25-year career as a photographer and share his experience and knowledge in the many fields in which he has excelled. He is one of my most sought after wedding and portraits photographers in The U.S. and currently focused on telling stories and amplifying voices in marginalized communities such as in India, Botswana, Guyana, Guatemala, and Bangladesh.

Ron was recently featured in the documentary “Children of Chernobyl”, during one of his assignments in Ukraine at The infamous Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Wilson is putting the final touches on his first book, “An Ardent Photographer,” and starting his non-profit foundation to help show that education is a right, not a privilege, even in the most remote places in the world.

In this seminar, Ron will inspire the audience with his work, dedication to personal photography projects, and his “Resilience” for never giving up and following his passion.
