BIO

Ron Mantay has been an intermediate level photographer at the Richmond Hill Camera Club since joining the club in 2017 and he has chosen to learn a few things about the art and science of photo essays. Although only three years into this learning journey, Ron’s photo essays have scored well in recent camera club competitions. Ron enjoys sharing experiences and information, and he regularly encourages others to step out of comfort zone and try something new. Ron’s trophy-winning photo essays (“Reflections on Music” and “Exploring Galapagos Islands”) can be seen on his YouTube channel.
