A graduate of the ArtCenter College of Design, Ron Contarsy is constantly reinventing himself. In the early '90s, Contarsy opened up a studio on 5th Avenue in the heart of New York's famed Chelsea district where he specializes in commercial/stills/product photography featuring brands like Avon, The Sharper Image, and OPI, NAHMA and Gabriel & Co.
While polishing his craft in fashion photography, moreover, Contarsy devoted himself to studying fashion in Milan and Paris. Currently dividing his time between Paris and New York City, with in-depth knowledge of lighting and close attention to detail, his work has also been widely known and respected in the beauty/fashion field (e.g., editorial, advertising, celebrity photography, video, and film) throughout the world.
His work has appeared in various magazine including WestEast Men, Hong Kong Tatler, L'Officiel Singapore, Harper's Bazaar International, Blush Dream, HIGHLIGHTS, noi.se, Prestige International, and SOLITAIRE.
