I recently photographed Ross Simpson, the 2010 Client Ambassador for the Royal Society for the Blind’s Dark to Light Walk.

Ross was diagnosed with Macular Dystrophy when he was just 8-years-old. This eye condition is degenerative, which means the older Ross gets, the less he’ll be able to see. Ross says “It’s not good, it’s not bad, it just is”. At 25, Ross has an insatiable thirst for life, playing in Australian band Mere Theory and studying at university. He put his hand up for the role of Client Ambassador to help other people like him and raise awareness about vision impairment in his local community.

The fundraising walk will be held on World Sight Day, Thursday 14 October, to help raise money for people who are blind or vision impaired in South Australia. Registration is still open – http://www.rsb.org.au/NewsandEvents/DarktoLightWalk1.aspx

The Lightly Salted Team will be there and you should be too!
