About RON OLCOTT PORTRAITS

My business Story and Values

MY story

I have always loved the magic of photography. I love the gift it gives us of freezing a memory to share for all time. I realized at a young age that when I am enjoying an experience, I am too caught up in the emotions of the moment to really recall the details later. And that photographs gave me a way to capture that moment and re-trigger those emotions.

It was no more than an occasional hobby for many years—something to do on vacation or a holiday with family.

But while planning a trip to Europe, I began studying in earnest how to be a better photographer. From there, my love was rekindled. After my trip, I continued studying, starting first with landscapes. (You would think it would be easy. I mean, it's just sitting there. But if you have ever played golf, you know it is not as easy as it sounds.) And eventually, I became serious about portraiture.

The challenge I love about portraits is that I am capturing your emotions instead of my own. My skill in translating what you are feeling into a portrait to hang on your wall makes me proud of what I do.

MY MISSION:

Our mission is to provide our clients with a creative look at themselves at a given moment in time to document their journey through the adventure of life and what it brings us all.

MY COMPANY VALUES.

WE: EMBRACE CREATIVITY IN OURSELVES AND OTHER
The impulse to see something differently than the rest of the world is an act of creation. Acting on that impulse represents the best calling a person can have. Sharing that action in ways that connect with other people is the only job of the maker.

WE: EXEMPLIFY INTEGRITY
Maintaining honesty and integrity in business and personal interactions is not because it is required. It is who we are. For the good of our souls.

WE: RECOGNIZE GENEROSITY REPRESENTS THE BEST OF HUMAN IMPULSE
Giving a part of ourselves to another human being, simply because we have something we can share, is a true gift. Giving to others of our time, talents, and resources improves our lives and the lives we touch

WE: SEEK BALANCE IN ALL THINGS
While outside influences will try to overwhelm us and put us into a place of fear, we believe that all life seeks balance. When the pendulum swings, it will swing back. And only we are responsible for our reactions to the swinging. Trusting the cycle of living and maintaining serenity in the face of adversity is a great gift.

WE: PROMOTE HARD WORK AS A MEANS OF REACHING OUR GOALS
While we seek efficiency and automation where beneficial in all things, we understand that the value received from an action is directly proportional to the effort expended in taking that action. There is no such thing as a free lunch.

WE: BELIEVE LIFE IS AN ADVENTURE FOR ALL TO SHARE
Breaking out of the box to see and embrace the great wide wild world gives life flavor and expands our thinking. Facing and overcoming roadblocks, real and imagined, provide us with the seasoning to grow beyond where we ever thought we could be.
