Award-winning commercial photographer Ron Berg’s keen eye for details and gentle but focused approach make him the photographer of choice for global brands across a wide variety of industries. For over 20 years, Ron Berg Studio has created rich and layered still photography and video that sets brands apart and creates memorable connections with audiences. His editorial work has been featured in Esquire, Vogue, GQ, New York Magazine, and others.

Ron made stops in New York and Chicago before returning to his hometown of Kansas City 20+ years ago, although he is frequently elsewhere, he never wanted to be that far away from that infamous KC BBQ and his family.

The common thread when you look at Ron Berg’s vast body of work, is that he is a details guy. He has a keen eye for details that most people miss. You can see it in his portraits, when his subject is caught mid-laugh, unselfconscious and at ease, their whole character encapsulated in a single glance. You can find it in his still campaigns, where the shadows that play against the angles of a model’s face are just as critical to the shot as the pose. You can feel it in his videography, where emotions – joy, hope, sadness, sensuality – burst forward in frames spanning even just a few moments.
