Ron Risman has been a photographer for over 30 years, and cinematographer and time-lapse specialist since 2008. As a photographer and timelapse specialist Ron quickly fell in love with night photography, and finding new and creative ways to capture the night sky.    "Standing under the dark skies of Moab was a life changing experience for me and I knew that someday I'd be leading workshops out here" says Risman.   "To be able to capture timelapses and photographs of the night sky, and to share that experience with others is what drives me."


Ron has been commissioned to shoot time-lapses for corporations such as Land Rover, Liberty Mutual, Restoration Hardware, and IttQ Japan; news organizations such as FOX CT News and WFTV-9 Orlando; and his work has appeared in films such as the HBO's "The Crash Reel" which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and in the Land Rover short "Bridges to the Stars."   In 2016 many of Ron's time lapses were licensed for television for a film about Utah's Might Five National Parks.


As the founder of Timelapse Workshops it is important to Ron to provide participants with an unrivaled workshop experience, both in-class and while on-location.
