About

On the plains of northwest Wyoming lives a man with a rare talent. A talent he’s spent 40 years honing into an amazing skill. Ronn Parkison is his name, and he’s a nature photographer. Not by profession, although he certainly could be. People in the local area enjoy his work, but outside the region he's not well known. I know him pretty well, as I'm his oldest daughter.

On any given weekend, you can find my dad and mom driving through the Big Horns, the Black Hills, and the wild spaces in between. They talk, they stop into the little local cafes, and they stretch their legs along the side of the road. When either of them spots something special, Ronn tracks it down and takes pictures of it. 

Over the years I’ve seen all kinds of wildlife that my dad has “captured.” Elk, bison, moose, deer, antelope, rock dogs, hummingbirds… Wyoming has a diverse and thriving wildlife population. He doesn't just photograph animals, though. He catches pictures of the sunrise, of winding roads, and dilapidated barns. He shares these pictures with friends and family, but the bulk of his pictures are stored away on his hard drive, and I think that’s a shame.

I had the idea of getting at least some of these pictures distributed to those who would like to own a copy. My idea is to create and publish a photo book of Ronn's work. There are lots of people over the years who have asked him to make his work available. Fortunately for us, there’s such a thing as Kickstarter. 

With this platform, I have a way to take orders up front. If we can get enough orders, it will make publishing the book worthwhile. I am so excited to make this a reality! 

What I want to see is a gorgeous book filled with my dad’s photos in the hands of people who enjoy his work. Once funded, I will produce, publish, and ship the books out directly. I will keep everyone informed with the production dates via Kickstarter’s email system. Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges

The risks will be that I have to go through multiple websites to achieve the rewards being offered, and I have to keep track of all of it. Other challenges will be getting the autographed books out to those who order them. I have published books before so I do have some skill on how to keep track of the orders. The autographed books will be handled first so that they ship in time.
