From Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — If you’re a Tribune reader or viewer of Tribune Digital Media, you have no doubt witnessed the talent of Ron Burkett. He is the longtime photographer, videographer and producer for the newspaper and his work is continuously on display.
From his Sports Illustrated quality photos of Friday night football to his behind the scenes video and editing work on almost every Tribune Digital Media piece, Burkett is our in-house magic maker. Additionally, his senior portrait work for the Principle Portrait Group adorns the walls of households throughout Trussville.
“I’m in awe of Ron’s talent, but I stopped being surprised by what he can do years ago,” Tribune publisher Scott Buttram said. “I’m convinced that there is nothing he can’t do or teach himself to do.”
Burkett also serves at First Baptist Church Trussville through the audio/video ministry as well the missions team where he documents mission trips through photography and helps prepare food for fellow church members.
His artistic talents are also exposed through his woodworking ability and even something as mundane as pressure washing his driveway. Yes, you read that right. Burkett can even turn a dirty driveway into an amazing work of art.
“Well, it was time to pressure wash my driveway again… but since it was getting close to Christmas, I had another idea,” Burkett commented on his Youtube channel.
We have shared one of Burkett’s pressure washer driveway murals with you before, but his latest masterpiece also demands attention. Check out the intricate detail of the beautiful nativity scene that he created in the video below.
