Hi, I am Ron Adair.

I have loved photography my whole life. As a child, there was something magical about snapping a Polaroid and watching a moment in time develop before my eyes. I studied photography throughout college and found that same allure in developing stills in a dark room. Now as an adult, the digital age has streamlined the process but the wonder still remains. To capture a moment in time and hold it forever is a special form of art and to put it simply, I love it!

I was born in Cincinnati and raised in Dayton. But I've called this amazing city my home for nearly 20 years now! On any given day you could find me eating the Pasta Bolo at Via Vite, riding my bike down the Little Miami Bike Trail, catching an independent film at Mariemont Theater, playing disc golf at Mt Airy, stopping in Holtman’s for 1-7 donuts, photographing the flowers at Ault Park, shopping for useless trinkets in OTR, reading a book on the banks, or at home trying to find every last temple in The Legend of Zelda.

“We asked Ron to take some casual family photos with family that hadn’t been together in several years. I can’t even describe how well the session went. He captured beautiful and fun images of several groups within our group. Honestly I am so pleased with the result!! My only hesitation at recommending him is that he may not be available the next time I want to use him.”
