Ron Coons, Owner

Ron started his imaging career very early in life at age eleven. As a still photographer
in Junior High and High School, and as a partner with his brother in a small
photography company, he photographed all types of work, including sports action,
portraits, product and advertising, and photojournalism for the local paper.

After High School, he attended
San Diego State University, studying television, radio
and film, and graduated with a degree in 1988. After starting a grip and rigging business
with a college friend, he spent four years doing special effects rigging, car mounts,
making rain effects, building props, and paying his dues for entry into the motion
picture industry.

After moving to Los Angeles in 1989, Ron worked toward becoming
a fully accredited First Camera Assistant and member of the
International Cinematographer's Guild.

As a working Camera Assistant, Ron founded a company called “Camware”
in 1989, selling products to other camera professionals. This business grew
into an Internet based mail order catalog under the name
“Filmtools”.
The business was sold in 2000, and is currently thriving in Burbank, California
under its new ownership.

After more than thirty five years in the film industry,
and numerous commercials, feature films and music
videos, Ron is currently residing in East Nashville, Tennessee
and working as a Director of Photography and Still Photographer.
