FC: Suncoast Wildlife

1: Ron Houston Growing up in Scotland in the small town of Burntisland in the county of Fife just across the River Forth from Edinburgh, was where as a young boy I became interested in wildlife and especially birds. Age 15 and 6 months, I entered the Boys Service of the Royal Air Force receiving an education and a grounding in Communications until at age 18 when my regular service in the Air Force began. During the 25 years of my career I traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East where my photography began. I started with a small 35mm film camera and when digital became the way to go switched to Canon cameras and gradually progressed to the more professional equipment. In the mid 90's my wife's job took us to Florida from London. The wild bird life of Florida was an immediate attraction and it was then my photography became more passionate for Wildlife that has stayed with me and grown.
