Ronit Fahl a documentary photographer based on the Big Island of Hawaii. Her work explores eclectic people and unusual places, with a special emphasis on underrepresented groups in a particular area. She is on a constant search to capture those who diverge from the majority, finding beauty in the different and unexpected.
Ronit first picked up a camera when she was 17 and has been shooting ever since. She has contributed to a variety of media outlets including Travel Oregon, Portland Mercury, Willamette Week, Oregon Music News and Vortex Music Magazine, along with providing images for non-profit organizations, designers, artists and other creatives.
Prior to a career in photography, Ronit taught English as a Peace Corps volunteer in Cameroon, West Africa and Swaziland, Southern Africa. She then received a Master's in Social Work from the University of Michigan; her clinical work focused on empowering families with very young children living in poverty and crisis in Portland, Oregon. She often found ways to incorporate photography into the field; it was while working in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at a large hospital that she began using digital photography as a resource for families and discovered the true power of the medium.
A life-long traveler (she made her first journey at age three, to South Africa), Ronit has ventured through 28 countries. Currently located off-grid on a two-acre farm in a rural district of Hawaii Island, she is available for commissions worldwide.
