Ron Berg is an award-winning location-lifestyle and portrait photographer and live-action director. After studying photography at RIT Ron made stops in New York and Chicago before returning to his hometown of Kansas City, although he is frequently elsewhere, he never wanted to be that far away from that infamous KC BBQ. With 20+ years of experience, Ron’s work has appeared in Esquire, Vogue, GQ, People, InStyle, Fortune, Fast Company, Money, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and numerous trade publications, representing such clients as Toyota, Sprint, AT&T, Hallmark, Blockbuster, Honda, McDonald's, Tostitos, Charles Schwab, and State Farm. See info page for a complete list.
From the gritty and raw to the unique and stylish and sometimes with a touch of humor, Ron is inspired by the variety of subjects, stories and locations he photographs and the challenge of capturing the organic, story-driven moment and emotion unique to each shoot and subject. He brings this sense of adventure, discovery and spontaneity to his photos of CEOs, families and kids to tech and Image Library Lifestyle shoots. Working with a top-notch, seasoned crew and long-time studio producer Melissa, Ron’s shoots are low-stress, positive and fun. This ensures a relaxed environment that brings out the best in the talent and allows him to consistently deliver the unique moments and stories (or ‘images’) for which he is known.
When he doesn’t have a camera in his hand, he can be found digging in his garden, pickling, making his special horseradish, doing agility with his dog Monty, or practicing his trumpet, or elbow-deep in grease working on his ’65 Chevy Panel Truck.
Ron has been named one of the Top 200 Advertising Photographers Worldwide by Archive magazine. In his 20+ year professional life, his photography has been routinely honored in industry competitions such as Communication Arts, PDN, Graphis to name a few. See below for a complete list.
Ron has seen it from carnivorous camels to beauties on the beach - and lived to tell about it. His client list is longer than he is tall, but it's not just the pretty pictures that make this man. He lives and breathe the world of photography and advertising making him the perfect addition to your already stacked team.
