Ron Pickering Photography

Chapter: Chicago /
Pro Type: Photographer

After a career in supply chain software management, I have been able to pursue my passion for food, product and fine art photography. Currently I am finishing the Winter 2018 semester at Grand Rapids Community College and have been accepted at College for Creative Studies in Detroit Michigan starting in Fall 2018. I am looking for mutually beneficial position in the Grand Rapids, Detroit or Chicago areas with a commercial studio where I can use my acquired skills and learn team members that are leading in the field.

My approach to food and product photography is to produce the images that will help the client's product stand out. I believe in getting to know the client, what their goal and expectations are then delivering on time and on budget. I approach the client from a long term perspective as a stable and reliable vendor.

My fine art photography falls into the abstract category. I use the camera, colors and movement to create beautiful abstracts with saturated colors and interesting lines. Each one is created with me finding colors in nature or an urban setting that I find interesting. Once I start abstracting, I feel the image starts to tell me what the message, feeling and even the name. My intent is for people to look deeper into the meaning of art and hopefully each other.
