Ronald Wayne

Apple, a far away land, vintage things, and guns –all things I’m quite fond of. I took a long car ride with the NextShark crew to photograph the long-lost Apple Computer Company co-founder Ronald Wayne. I’ll tell you this was one of the most humbling conversations I’ve had with a photo subject.  Ronald has literally seen the world change and has been quoted saying:

Unfortunately, my whole life has been a day late and a dollar short

Yet the man remains as optimistic and a positive source of energy. Sweet dude. Unlike his former partner Steve Jobs.

If you had your choice between Steve Jobs and an ice-cube, you’d nuzzle up to the ice-cube for warmth.

He’s known to collect/trade coins, stamps, vintage gear, and old (but still fully functional) weapons. I asked Ronald to pose with the different items for his portraits.
