Ron Landis received his BA and MBA from Fairleigh Dickinson University and an Executive Management certificate from Penn State University. He spent 38 years in business management, but throughout his career was an avid photographer capturing photos from around the world. After retirement he enrolled in Bryan Peterson’s School of Photography to perfect his art. He was Vice President of the Norwalk Camera Club in Connecticut, Chair of the Judges’ Circle, and now judges photography contests as well as speaks throughout the Connecticut/New York area on creativity and conceptual photography. He taught photography to children with social and psychological challenges; however, he had to suspend this due to a long bout with Lyme disease. In addition to showings in local galleries, Ron’s work has been juried for art shows and chosen for the LymeLight Foundation’s annual fundraiser, in Burlingame, CA.
Having seen so many cultures and places he developed a talent to look at subjects from unique perspectives, drawing the viewer into the emotion of the story. His photography is a metaphor for the way he thinks; “to see, pause, reflect, and then imagine.”
