After spending the past 15 years founding and working with some of the best and busiest wedding photography studios in the U.S. and photographing over 500 weddings around the globe, Ron B. Wilson has reconnected with his true passions: travel, men’s street style, and fine-art photography. So starting “Art, Style, Flow”, a travel inspiration blog and online magazine featuring his photography, was a natural process and has been a work in progress for the past 20 years. New York City and Miami Photographer Ron B. Wilson specializes in an award winning fashion based documentary style of photography. Ron was recently featured in Professional Photographer Magazine with an article about the {revisited} sessions that he created, and over the past few years he has been honored with many awards at the WPPI and PPA’s Imaging USA Conferences. Ron’s primary goal is to tell stories with images and to bring out the very best in every detail of each subject he photographs. He is available for fashion, advertising, travel and editorial assignments.

Ron has been recognized by:

  • The New York Times
  • Professional Photographer Magazine
  • Range Finder Magazine
  • The Miami Herald
  • National Geographic
  • The Knot
  • Grace Ormonde among others.
  • Photographers Without Borders

Ron began his career in photography very early in life and was always the kid with the camera. He knew he was going to be a photographer and never thought of doing anything else, and he brings that passion to every assignment. He studied photography at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. During his education at AIFL he was selected for an internship at The Miami Herald. The internship was an invaluable experience, which helped mold him and his talents into the person he is today. He continued to freelance for The Miami Herald after the end of his internship, where he photographed everything from celebrities, breaking news, and portraits to daily features. He was granted a scholarship from Polaroid and upon graduation, he was awarded The Best Portfolio in his graduating class. After graduating he headed off to Budapest, Hungary for another internship with Atlantic News Service. His assignments there ranged from local Hungarian news, to traveling with and covering Hilary Rodham-Clinton’s visit to Eastern Europe to photographing the end of the Bosnian war in Sarajevo. This was the hardest, yet most rewarding time in his life. After he returned to United States, he relocated to New York City where he has worked in many different fields of photography such as fashion, commercial, architecture, and portraiture. He has covered every possible subject from the World Trade Center Tragedy to the blackout of 2003, and has been published in many publications such as The New York Times, Modern Bride, Asian Photography and Imaging Magazine, and RangeFinder Magazine. He just returned from visiting Havana, Cuba, shooting images of the country as the curtain opens there. 2015 Ron took an extended trip to Morocco that took him from The Sahara Desert, through The Atlas Mountains to The Atlantic Sea (and many places in between). Ron recently completed his first project for Photographers Without Borders in Comalapa, Guatemala and looks forward to his second assignment for PWB in Botswana.

1. What makes you passionate about helping Young1ove?

Well, this will be my second project for PWB and I am especially excited about visiting, learning and working with the people of Botswana. This will be my for time in sub-Saharan Africa. I know that being from the USA, we have so many advantages when it comes to education about and medications for HIV. Helping tell the story of Young1ove through my photography will be a career highlight and the fulfillment of a personal dream.

2. How do you believe your photography can make a difference for them?

I can only hope that my 20-plus years as a professional photographer will be a benefit to such an amazing project. I'm a dedicated person on anything I do, and plan to give 110% both behind and aside from my camera. I love to tell stories my with images from the smallest of
details to sweeping wide shots. I will do my best, using my preparation and passion to tell the story of Young1ove and help spread the word of the great work they are doing!

3. What message would you like to send to your supporters?

Mostly THANK YOU! Some of my supporters are my closest friends and family, while others are complete strangers. The simple fact that they are showing interest in something I am doing would have been enough, but helping me raise thousands of dollars is more than I could have
hoped for. I promise to think of each of them every step of the way.
