Meet Winston -- newest employee of Ron Warren Photography

This is Winston.  We recently posted a very important position with RWP -- CEO (Canine Executive Officer).  Winston applied and he easily beat out his two similarly qualified competitors primarily by sleeping through the interview.  That really sold us.

His responsibilities are many.  First and foremost he encourages a playful approach to the daily photography, marketing for photography, and image editing of photograph.  This involves a surprising number of chew toys. I tell you this guy is an innovator!  Employee health and fitness are top priorities.  Daily (as in seven days a week) walks are to be strictly enforced (once he masters walking on a leash -- don't ask).  And he knows exactly when we've spent too much time looking at our computer monitors -- he's practically an optometrist! He is also a master at determining exactly which photographs make the cut for each assignment (if we lay a proof-sheet on the ground -- bam! -- just watch him go! Selecting, rejecting, editorializing -- this guy knows good photography!).  And when some piece of equipment needs testing, CEO Winston steps right up and models for us -- the camera loves him.

So please help us welcome Winston to the RWP family.  He'll work tirelessly to bring you quality photography at a fair price.  His salary is merely kibble, but the profit-sharing plan is very generous.

adorable little equestrian

What is it with little girls and horses?  Even statues of horses.  I guess it's the way I feel about dogs (but I'd never try to ride one!).

Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Leonard Slatkin conducting

Just an amazing opportunity last night to photograph the season opening concert of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra with Maestro Leonard Slatkin conducting.  If you were there, you may have briefly seen me on stage with the orchestra (although I was hoping no one would notice) when my client asked me to photograph the Maestro in his element, facing his orchestra.  That spot and angle proved a bit limiting as there were microphones everywhere (they were recording the performance for a CD).  So I'll be going back another time for that exact shot, but here are a few intial sneak peek, early favorites from last night.  Special thanks to Gabrielle Poshadlo and Amy Claeys for collaborating to get me this job.

Headshots for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra

I was hired to take headshots of the three newest violinists with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.  And so that's exactly what I did! (Thanks to Amy Claeys and thanks to Gabrielle Pashadlo )
