Ron Sherman’s first published photograph was in junior high school and 60 years later he still gets a great pleasure in seeing his images published. In 2014, Emory University acquired his 750-silver gelatin collection of 1970s Atlanta prints. These photographs are available at their Library for research, publication and display. He is currently editing and digitizing his 500,000 black and white negatives and color transparencies created during his long career.
Ron’s photographs have been published in national magazines ranging from Time, Life, and Newsweek to Business Week, Forbes and Sports Illustrated. His corporate assignments have been featured in annual reports, brochures and multimedia productions for a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies including IBM, Eastman Kodak, Coca-Cola, BellSouth (now AT&T), and the Southern Company. For more than 30 years he has made a specialty of capturing the essence of campus life in photo-essays on more then 130 colleges and universities across the United States and Canada.
Photographs from his stock photo library of some 250,000-color images are regularly leased for a variety of publication purposes. Tony Stone Images and Getty Images represented selected photographs for national and international distribution. BrownTrout published a Ron Sherman Atlanta calendar from 1994 to 2010. His images, capturing the classic beauty of Atlanta and Georgia, have also been published in four hardcover photographic books.
Ron started Computer Aided Photography, Inc. in 1991 to explore the creative possibilities of using a combination of photography and computer technology. His foresight has allowed him to stay on the leading edge of his craft and complete many unique projects. With a Fine Arts Degree in Photographic Illustration from the Rochester Institute of Technology and a Masters of Arts in Communications from Syracuse University, Ron has been profiled in a number of photography publications and is listed in Who’s Who in America.
