    He is not only genius, but he is extremely professional and I have had great success each time I utilize Ron for our clients productions! Thank you Ron and team!

    I have worked with Ron since 2013 - shooting the likes of Eve, Bella Thorne, Selenis Leyva, Peter Facinelli, and Mj Rodriguez (for covers and editorials) - in addition to other commercial/stills/product shoots. Ron is always open to innovative and fresh ideas, and brings an interesting vision to each project. Most importantly, he unites everyone at all times - because, I think, he never judges anyone under any circumstances. Whether you are a pop star, Oscar winner, fellow photographer, stylist, makeup artist, intern, or a college student, once you speak to him, you are friends with Ron, and the friendship would last longer than you'd think. Moreover, he sees so much potential in each person and what they are capable of doing, not what they "cannot" do. While handling so many projects, as such a notable talent in beauty/fashion photography, Ron is never tempted by power, position, fame and fortune (which is why he always wins trust from everyone around him). Here is what I have learned from Ron: No matter how capable they are as individuals, if they are unable to get along with one another, the photo shoot as a whole will not be able to reveal its full potential. It's been such an honor for me to know someone like him. Thank you so much Ron for everything you do!!! You are the best!!!

    Ron is extremely experienced and professional. He always delivers the best quality work and is my go-to for all photography projects.

  • Ashley Daly

    Ron is exceptional and has a unique vision which translates beautifully across his photography. I've done several shoots with him over the past decade even using him exclusively for our new clothing line which he was instrumental in shaping. Models, non models, good/bad weather, various location challenges- he always delivers beautiful images. Ron knows when to dial it up for editorial to making images more relatable- he's my go to for every type of shoot.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The customer will contact me with their needs and desires are.

The usage for the job is then determined and that has a lot to do with the rate that will be charged.

Also the amount of items or shots that the customer is looking to do, also determines what is going to be involved to get the desire result done.

So there are too many factors to list now. But I assure you, everything will be documented and nothing will be done until both parties sign off before hand.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a graduate of Art Center College of Design

I attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA

I have over 30 years working in the field in New York as well as Milan and Paris
