Not Your Average Bio
Ron's editorial and commercial images have been published worldwide for almost 30 years. He has photographed for some of the top magazines and corporations on the planet, and his images have also been exhibited in museums and galleries on 4 continents.
Whether he is shooting world leaders or street people, he has the ability to put his subjects at ease while coming back with memorable, dynamic images.
Ron has been living in Alaska since 1983 ("I can't see Russia from my house, though") and travels as much as possible looking for new perspectives, ideas and inspiration.
For the last 3 years, he has been producing a series of charity posters for the American Cancer Society, illustrating the common challenges faced by Iditarod dogsled racers and those of cancer patients.
His largest current personal project involves documenting the selective compassions of humanity, and the bonds created in ethnic cultures.
"All Seriousness Aside"
Ron's photographic inspiration has come from many diverse people: Ernst Haas, Arnold Newman, Franz Lanting, Ansel Adams and Eddie Adams can be "blamed for my eventual divergence from a successful 9-5 job into something less secure. It's also never too late to blame my parents -- they provided the inspiration, sometimes without their intent, to leave the nest and find relevance and meaning in the world".
Ron has received kudos from editors and art directors all over the world (see his Client Comments here and on his website at www.ronlevyphoto.com). He specializes in producing memorable images of people, cultures, animals, travel, adventure and conservation-related images anywhere.
