Never judge a man without first listening to his story. -
On an assignment and sitting in front of a coffee shop, I had a self-revealing conversation with this great-great-grandfather. He served our country in the great war to preserve our American freedoms. I am sure he had a story for every wrinkle on his face and precious strand of white hair. He shared a wealth of history with me in our moment together. His eyes are a window into a life well lived. I walked away rich for my short time spent with him. He allowed me to take this image of him. I am forever grateful for the unexpected.
The month of May was a great month for RonLouis Photos. I photograph some lovely events, street fairs, an opera, branding campaigns, and headshots. All of these occasions I found to be very gratifying. But my best engagement of the month goes to multiple brand ambassador Eric Rodriguez. Eric was one of the models for my monthly RLP Urban Photographer's Meetup. He came ready to do business with the photographers and their cameras. He was punctual, dressed and ready to be photographed. He also had some accessories to change up his look within the frames. He brought with him his wife/stylist and his "A" game. All of these elements created the foundation for a successful photo shoot.
This was my second photo shoot with Mr. Rodriguez this year. He knows what it takes to create a stream of handsome images to showcase his brand. He has gained phenomenal results by investing in his branding story.
I appreciate being asked to take on the role of Chamber Ambassador. I am deeply honored to have this opportunity bestowed upon me to serve this great organization and I look forward to helping and encouraging folks to the best of my ability. I want to have a gracious impact on our present members and new members to come.

My challenge in being a photographer is sometimes sharing too much in words about an image. I realize more and more to just share a minimal as possible and allow the viewer the space to imagine.
There is no place in the world like New York City! I cannot think of any other place in the world that offers such a plethora of diversity. The city allows me to capture images of people from all walks of life. New York City absolutely embodies street and urban photography.
On the fourth Saturday of each month, a group of photographers, amateur and professional, gather together at a new location to make this city the backdrop of their photography.
I invite you to join us as we make this creative platform an environment for meeting other photographers. It's a wonderful way to create a community for professional photographers and beginners alike. All are welcomed to participate.
The photographer's urban meet-up is also a great way to exchange tips and experiences with other creatives. We all have something to learn or tips to share. So whether you are a cell/smartphone photographer or a full frame camera user come out and join us for some street and urban photography.Read More

Last evening I had a wonderful opportunity to speak to a crowd of residents from the Fort Greene Community and surrounding neighborhoods. I shared the slideshow presentation of photos from my landscapes, people, and wildlife collections. The response from the audience and outpouring of gratitude warmed my heart. Like in times past I did have butterflies beforehand. I suppose this will always be the case. It's not like this was my first speaking engagement, I have spoken in front of way larger crowds before. But this was different, I spoke about a subject dear to my heart, my photography tied into the theme of the night, "Earth and the Environment"Read More

Fort Greene Park located in Brooklyn hosts one of the best dancing events in New York City.

The rhythms from the Soul Summit located in Fort Greene Brooklyn could be felt deep within one's soul. It crossed economic boundaries, causing poor and rich to forget their status as they danced. Young and old alike danced carefree as the DJ mixed the music. It's an event like no other in New York City.Read More

The heavy rains have stopped after a fierce thunderstorm, and everyone is moving quickly to their destinations. Dark clouds above and the city streets are wet and shining. I walked along the curbside of 34th street and I looked down to avoid the puddles. However, a puddle reflecting the Empire State Building grabbed my attention. Never has a puddle look so inviting to take a photo of it. In New York City, you will never know where you will find that next great shot. I am excited to share this addition from my #etsy shop: Curbside Reflection #art #photography #brown #blue #curb #empirestatebuilding #water #puddle #reflection #manhattan #nyc #curb #newyorkcity http://etsy.me/2no9IhpRead More
