All Mick's Pix Photos images are under copyright and ARE NOT in the public domain
I've been a wildlife and scenic photographer for about twenty-five years ( it actually started as just being a good excuse to spend every free minute in the woods and parklands around the Cleveland, Ohio area ) and recently at the urging of friends opened my web-site in order to market some of the thousands of images I've collected over the years.
There's no underlying theme to my images other than a deep appreciation for the beauty of the world around us; all I really have to say is that even in these troubled times, nature has managed to counterbalance the troubles with some genuine beauty all around you if you'll just let yourself see it.
I,ve never been very selective about what I'll photograph ( my motto seems to be ' If it'll hold still for a sixtieth of a second, I'll take its picture.' ) but most of my images are from Northeast Ohio, primarily in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Cleveland Metroparks ' Emerald Necklace ', but there are also scenes from the Adirondack and Cattskill mountains in New York, as well as from western Pennsylvania. there is a broad spectrum of subjects: from whitetailed deer to butterflies, from the stark contrast of a stream after a fresh snowfall to the strikingly bright colors of the northeast Ohio autumn on a sunny day, from covered bridges to sunset cityscapes, in color and black-and-white.
If you enjoy viewing, and perhaps owning, any of my images anywhere near as much as I enjoyed taking them, then, I will have enjoyed them all the more for that
"Fotografie ist eine Leidenschaft. Sie ist die Kunst, mit Licht zu gestalten" ronny ritschel
Ronny Ritschel sagt: “Fotografie ist mehr als nur sein Equipment zu kennen. Du musst immer wieder das “Sehen” trainieren und sehr geduldig auf den passenden Moment warten um ihn aus deiner Sicht der Welt zu präsentieren. Aus diesem Grund ist Kunst auch immer etwas sehr persönliches…”
Ronny Ritschel lebt und arbeitet in Hamburg und kann bereits auf mehrere internationale und nationale Fotoausstellungen, sowie Veröffentlichungen in Printmagazinen zurückblicken. Neben seiner Arbeit als Fotograf, ist er der Herausgeber des deutschen Fotografieblogs blogtimes.info.
I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world
and had the pleasure of working with hundreds of clients
around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways.
Along the way, I've had the pleasure of working with an incredible number of talented photographers, directors, cinematographers and imagemakers.
I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life.
As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction.
So I bought a camera. And then another. And another.
My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.
I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves
despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.
I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting
Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.
I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.
I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that.
(To paraphrase Ansel Adams: "...making pictures, not just taking them.")
Illustration and painting are other passions and I love creating unique photocompositions.
One thing led to another and now I'm published, winning awards and having my work shown in galleries.
So here I am.
Open for business.
And open for any adventure that needs an image or two.
