Artist Ron Schmidt

The Gift of a Camera

Ron is unlike our other artists in that his specialty is photography. The subject of his photos are none other than man's best friend. Ron has had an interest in being a photographer ever since his Uncle Ross gave him an old Yoshika camera one Christmas.

His first photos were of his dog Nicki during a mini "wildlife exploration." Ron went on to study at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, CA where he was able to gain the training and professional skills needed to pursue his career.

He began in New York City, assisting celebrity and high fashion photographers but he knew there was more he wanted to accomplish with his work; so in 1999, he transitioned into commercial photography. Ron continued working until he found his niche while making holiday greeting cards for his friends and family.

His love for photography and dogs had finally materialized into something he and the people around him knew would be a success; something that only the little boy in suburban New Jersey could have dreamed of.
