Completely self taught, Ronny Ritschel started taking pictures in 2006 and over the years, has become specialized in fine art, landscape, architecture and street photography. At this time, he also began developing photographs to enhance his understanding of the pictures taking process. Finally, after nearly two years of taking pictures using analogue equipment, he switched to digital. In 2012, he now uses both methods. As a “hybrid” photographer he currently uses a Nikon FX (D800) and a large format 4×5 film camera (Chamonix 045N-2). He lives and works in Canada and Germany. Besides his work as a photographer, he is also the publisher of the German photography blog blogtimes.info. You can also find him on facebook at facebook.com/RonnyRitschelPhotography.
