I first picked up a Polaroid Camera at age 7 and I've been snapping pictures ever since. I am currently concentrating on building up my commercial portrait photography business. I shoot with the Nikon digital system as well as various Polaroid and medium format film cameras.

"Ronin Vision takes his name from the ronin samurai and his love for photography. Like the masterless ronin samurai, Ronin Vision grew up without an official place to call home. Born in Japan, during one of his father tours serving the U.S. Navy, Ronin Vision was able to experience life in several foreign countries.
As an adult, Ronin Vision continued his adventures in Washington D.C. as a TV cameraman and later moved to Raleigh, NC where he is a part time photographer.
Ronin Vision enjoys capturing people, landscapes, and nature with his Nikon D200. Besides photography his interests include travel, politics, music, movies, hiking and drinking lots and lots of Garorade.
Check out the tale of the 47 Ronin at victorian.fortune..."

"RoninVision's online handle is approriate. Its all about vision. Tom can find a great photo in the most overlooked locations. I think he could create a masterpiece out of a blank wall.
He constantly looks at new angles to "see" things from and that vision brings us some very artistic photos.
On top of that, he is a great guy to shoot around with."

"Variety and Quality. An impressive talent and an inspiring collection of photos."

"The quote "Whatever Interests is Interesting" is perfect for RoninVision to have used in his profile. Why? Because he is gifted with the ability to make nearly EVERYTHING unspeakably INTERESTING. His camera captures things that to many might be missed, yet I find myself lingering over his photographs, not wanting to miss a single detail."
