Ron Castle has been photographing and creating art since he graduated from the University of Arizona Graphic Design School in 1969 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Commercial Art and Illustration. His work has ranged from graphic design, to oil painting, to film photography, but digital photography has taken center stage in his creative life for the past decade. Since falling in love with digital imaging, he has honed his skills at the prestigious Santa Fe Photographic Workshops and earned the coveted Certified Professional Photographer and Master Photographer degrees from Professional Photographers of America (PPA)--and his very first entry into PPA's International Photographic Competition in 2015 resulted in a Diamond Photographer of the Year award! In recent years, he has focused his passion on architectural and real estate photography, where he has also earned awards in print competition. Additionally, his images and techniques were featured in Texas Photographer magazine and he taught a popular real estate photography workshop for the Texas Professional Photographers state convention.
