Ron Mayhew spends much time behind the lens patiently capturing his images. Having been a professional wood sculptor for over twenty years he has developed an eye for composition. It’s this artistic background which has helped Ron achieve recognition regionally and internationally in photo competitions. He maintains a robust web site, RonMayhewPhotography.com, where he is continually adding new images from far and near.
At an early age, Ron set up a darkroom in his parent’s garage to produce black and white photos from his well used Brownie Hawkeye camera. Today, he uses Nikon equipment and Photoshop and Lightroom to edit his images. He credits National Geographic Magazine for creating a life long interest in photography and wanderlust for traveling to remote places. Now, retired and free to travel worldwide, Ron focuses on “cultural photography”, that is, street scenes and informal portraits of the people he encounters.
Ron is a member of the NAPP, National Association of Photoshop Professionals and NPPA, National Press Photographers Association.
Custom Printing and Web Design
In addition to his own work, Ron does custom digital image processing and printing for others. Using the best archival papers and inks available he produces beautiful prints that will last a lifetime.
Ron has designed his website and that of others using the WordPress publishing platform and is available to help others with their websites on a limited basis.
