Ralph Arwood, Inside-Out photography


As an ASMP Professional member, what are you hoping to gain?

As an associate member for many years, ASMP has taught me how to better run my photography business and protect my copyright. Moving to professional membership will allow me have more input to our organization and provide more support to it.

Within your abilities, how can you add to the photographic community?

My photographic skills are best used to document the South Florida natural environment. A good photograph not only shows what is special about our area, but can make people want to preserve it.

Was there a defining turning point in your career that led you to become a professional in the photography industry? What keeps you passionate about being a photographic professional?

More than 40 years ago I started out to document every plant and animal in South Florida. I still have a long way to go to meet that goal. The rapid loss of habitat and creatures, keeps me motivated to work as fast as I can.

Is there anything that you would like to share about your photographic endeavors/interests with the other members of ASMP?

Most of my time is spent supporting biological research in the Big Cypress National Preserve and the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. We have recently completed a study of the Big Cypress Fox Squirrel and have on going studies of the Florida Panther and the Florida Bonneted Bat.
