I AM RON.
I started my photographic journey over 23 years ago at the tender age of 14. My first encounter with a camera was in a high school photo class. The first click of the shutter sent a jolt through my system, and I knew photography was the thing for me.
It was about four years later when I finally took the leap, and started supporting my "addiction" with the title of "Professional". Ever since then I've been immersed in the world of photography, filmmaking, and design. I've shot thousands of weddings, portrait sessions, events, and commercial assignments.
In 2005 I attended Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, California, where I studied Commercial Photography with an emphasis in Advertising. I had the opportunity to study under some of the industry's best professionals, and in the process was privileged to retain a place on the Dean's List. In addition, I was selected to receive the first year Top Student Award.
In 2007, after completing my studies, my family and I returned to Northern Utah where we now reside. Upon returning, I founded ADAIR Creative, a marketing and branding agency that specializes in photographic and cinematic brand reinforcement for corporate clients.
I enjoy cooking (read: hacking recipes), racquetball, cycling, hiking, making movies, and tinkering with just about any electronic device. Most of all I enjoy learning, and I love watching my 5 kids learn too. My favorite book on learning is "Dumbing us Down" by John Taylor Gatto, and my two favorite classics of all time are "Taming of the Shrew" (Shakespeare) and "The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" (Robert Louis Stevenson).
