Ron Clifford



Anyone who knows Ron Clifford knows that while he is a skilled, award-winning photographer, he is first and foremost an encourager, a mentor and an educator. Call him an “Inspirologist” He has made a career out of encouraging the creative soul in others. As a result of his commitment to building strong communities, he has his work featured on Google products and has nearly 3 million online followers. Ron has become well known for his involvement in online and in-person mentoring in photography, life and business and has been inspiring fellow creatives and entrepreneurs through talks, presentations and workshops. Recently he was able to share his story about overcoming on the TEDx stage. Along with teaching online, Ron is also a Photography Guide leading unique photography symposiums workshops and tours to some of the most remote places on earth.

In Ron’s own words I’m a visual storyteller. I always say, “Do what you can’t help but do“ and for me that is to capture the BEAUTY and CHARACTER in the people I meet and the places I travel to. I love to shoot in Nature, especially landscapes and wildlife. Recently I have been very fortunate to be able to build my portfolio of images from the extreme regions of the planet. Both the Arctic and Antarctica. Along with my passion for the natural world, I love to photograph people and I remain a very active portrait photographer with a quaint Studio just north of Toronto in historic Newmarket Ontario, Canada.

I love to explore the natural world, photograph the people in it and teach others to do the same.

I have the best job in the world
