Although born in Brooklyn, New York, it wasn't until Ron Saunders moved to Colorado that he discovered his photographic eye. There he received his training and for the next seventeen years he travelled and photographed much of the United States and Southeast Asia. In 1998 his travels took him to Mexico's Baja peninsula. Impressed by its dramatic landscapes, charmed by the unpretentious lifestyles of the people, he continued his excursions there for several years. By 2003 however, no longer content with these occasional journeys, he pulled up his U.S stakes and headed south to the little fishing village of San Felipe de Jesus in Baja California, a place he now calls home.

Ron is a charter member of the San Felipe Art Co-op. His photographs have been showcased in that city as well as in various Colorado galleries. In addition, his work has been published in various magaizines and on book covers. He is also a member of Editorial Photographers, a renown photography organization which addresses issues related to documentary and editorial photography. .
Mexico, despite being the world's 16th largest country is, with the exclusion of tourism, among the least photographed. Ron, however, is committed to correct this statistic. For this reason he continues to travel throughout Baja California and Baja California Sur documenting the daily lives, customs and traditions of ordinary people.
