Changing worlds with photography.

Q&A for Ron about his latest project:

1. What makes you passionate about helping Clean Futures Fund (

I was 18 years old when the accident happened at Chernobyl and very interested in the story as it unfolded, I remembered being glued to the TV. Ten years later in 1997 when I was doing an internship in Eastern Europe I wanted to travel to Ukraine to photograph how life was at that time in the area, but I could not make the trip due to timing conflicts. Now, all these years later, I'm on my way representing PWB to cover the Clean Futures story. I look forward to covering all the things they are working on such as local healthcare and the Dogs of Chernobyl project.

2. How do you believe your photography can make a difference for them?

I bring 20 plus years as a professional photographer and have a passion for telling stories with my cameras. I am very interested in healthcare, animals, and life in general in Eastern Europe. I look forward to meeting and working with the staff, volunteers, and local people to do my best in telling their stories and making a difference through my photography.

3. What message would you like to send to your supporters?

I realize this is not my first project for PWB and that I am relying on a lot of the same friends and family members who have supported me in the past. I promise to make the very most out of this opportunity and hopefully make all of my supporters proud. They are helping me help others, and I believe one of the most important things is to live a life of service. I appreciate every dollar!

More about RonAfter spending the past 15 years founding and working with some of the best and busiest wedding photography studios in the U.S. and photographing over 500 weddings around the globe, Ron has reconnected with his true passion: inspirational photojournalistic fine-art travel photography. 

After shooting projects for Photographers Without Borders in India, Botswana, and Guatemala recently, he realized that photography has the power to literally change the world, and that's what he intends to do from now on with his life and career.

Here are some of his favorites photos from those projects:

Every year, our photographers and videographers donate hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of their time to document the work of grassroots initiatives that are making a real change in this world where it is most needed. By capturing, honouring and witnessing humanity at its best, we are not only inspiring many, but we are forging new narratives of what is and what is possible. 

You can help by supporting our photographers and videographers (See the side bar to the right to see fundraisers for our most recent recruits).

Each of our official photographers/videographers is assigned a GroupRev fundraising page by PWB upon acceptance. These pages are a privilege we offer that are intended to make our programs accessible to all and enable our volunteer photographers/videographers to raise their program fees and subsidize or cover these necessary project-related expenses:

  • Airfare
  • Visa's
  • Vaccinations
  • Health Insurance
  • Travel Insurance

The following expenses are the sole responsibility of the photographer/videographer:

  • Privately arranged travel / Equipment & Equipment Insurance / Software / Extra Baggage Fees / Donation perks / Clothing / Postage/Postcard / Prints / Etc.

Photographers Without Borders® (PWB) envisions a world where we all put ourselves in each others' shoes and work together. Our mission is to inform and inspire positive change by visually communicating the ways that grassroots initiatives are addressing problems in their communities.
