In commemoration of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Jim and Fred feature sports photographer Ron Wyatt who photographed the Summer Olympics in Athens and Beijing. Ron discusses some of his sports images and relates the story of how and why he switched from Canon to Nikon one week before the Beijing Olympic Games! In addition to sports, Ron leads workshops for M&M Photo Tours and will shortly be traveling to Tuscany and in early 2015 to Tanzania. Ron's website is at www.ronwyattphotos.com and we urge you to check out some of his wonderful photo galleries.
