About Ron Scheffler


Welcome. I am a freelance photographer based in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada covering a range of photographic areas including corporate, editorial, sports and weddings. For any assignment (or general) inquiries, please take a moment to write a brief message with all of the pertinent details through the contact form here. If you prefer to contact me by phone, my number is 1-905-971-7661.

In terms of sports photography, the sport to photograph in Hamilton is the Hamilton Tiger-Cats football team, images of which are prominently displayed on the homepage here. As one might safely guess from the photos, football is one of my favourite subjects. While this site showcases mostly my recent CFL work, the images are a culmination of experience spanning nearly 20 years of pro football photography, both in Canada and the USA.

For the past 10 years I’ve been a contract photographer for the Panini America trading card company (formerly known as Donruss) and have covered over 150 NFL football games. In addition, I’ve covered football and other sports with an editorial on-deadline approach for sports photo agencies, which enables me to cross between commercial and editorial focus in my game coverage.
Other major sports experience includes the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, 2007 FIFA U20 World Cup in Canada, FINA World Championship swimming, F1 motorsports, NCAA football, Canadian Superbike motorcycle racing, MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, ATP tennis…

Beyond sports photography I’m involved in corporate and institutional work, including event coverage and public relations photography in addition to editorial and wedding coverage. Editorial work includes an ongoing 10+ year relationship with the Hamilton Spectator newspaper in photographic and multimedia content creation and post production capacities for print and online editions.
