Writing

Ralph’s articles have been featured in numerous publications throughout the years. Below is a partial list of articles Ralph has written. This list does not include his pre-hospital medical and outdoor survival articles. He also authored a book, Outdoor and Survival Skills For Nature Photographers, which is available from Amhurst Media and North Woods Images. All articles are fully protected by Copyright. He also wrote Longing for Limos, which is a nostalgic photo-essay on the limousine-type ambulances of the past which was published in JEMS, The Journal of Emergency Medical Services in their November, 1996 issue. This piece was nominated for the prestigious Maggie Award, the Oscar of magazine articles. It did not win but Ralph is honored to have been nominated. You can view images of ambulances of which some were used in the article on this site by clicking on Lots of photos and and a stock list and then click on Motor vehicles and then Public Safety Gallery.  If you are interested in using them in a publication, please do not hesitate to email or call me. Almost all articles come with images and almost all of the images are mine with few being in the Public Domain. Prices are fair.
