With a focus in architecture, interiors, the trades, and a niche in fine dining, my editorial work — written and photographic — is featured in business, lifestyle, shelter and design publications throughout the West.
With over 30 years of marketing and photography experience, I understand the value of excellent imagery and effective marketing.
I was an early adopter in the high-resolution digital revolution, shooting state-of-the-art, Canon DSLRs paired with a a quiver of crystal-clear L glass. My studio is equipped with enough Macintosh firepower to keep Apple stockholders happy every quarter.
An avid researcher with a passion for art, design, and architecture, my creativity is enlivened through collaboration. Process-driven, my preparations include meeting with stakeholders (the earlier the
better), site review, orientation, landscape constraints and the minutiae—like knowing when the sun rises and sets.
As in life, timing is everything.
An expert in post-production — from print to Internet — I’m technology savvy, adept in end-use requirements, and fluent in designer-speak. I can manage your marketing, print or web development projects, or work directly with your designer or developer.
But most importantly, I know how to get the job done — on time, on budget, with no headaches.
I've had the pleasure of working with Ramona for several years providing her company with promotional materials. She quickly became one of my favorite clients, as she does not so much feel like a client, but a team member. She communicates clearly, decisively and with a smile. If you're lucky enough to work with Ramona I'm sure you'll experience the same." -- Aaron Alcorn, Adco Marketing
