Welcome to Ron Dickey Photography

Capturing the beauty all around has transformed me as a photographer. I notice the details and everything looks different.

About Me


My background

I currently live full-time at Skytop, Pennsylvania. I was born and raised on an Illinois farm. Although I left to pursue a Ph.D in Economics my heart is still on the farm. I had the opportunity in the late 1960's to live in Argentina on a post-doctoral fellowship. This experience in living abroad fueled my desire to travel whenever I could.

My experience

My interest in photography began in earnest when I lived in Argentina for two years from 1966-68. Since then I have photographed my travels throughout he United States and many other countries.

My vision

When I began my photographic experience 50 years ago it was totally unique as compared today. Early on one had to be extremely selective when photographing a scenic vista, object or event. With film cameras there was no way of knowing what the photographic outcome was until the film was developed. Selectivity was the watch word. Today, with smart phones and a multitude of digital cameras one can snap away with abandon hoping for the "perfect" photo.  Fifty years of experience enables me to take fewer photos but ones that are memorable.
