Ron Stewart has been sharing his world through a viewfinder for as long as he can remember. Starting at age 9 with his dad’s hand-me-down Nikkormat camera, the sense of discovery began. Today he is one of a handful of photographers who has successfully made the transition into the commercial film industry.
20 years ago Ron made the natural migration to commercial directing and was immediately awarded broadcast spots for Hilton Hotels. Ron expresses, “It’s exhilarating working within the many layers of the motion environment, from directing the action all the way to sound design in the editing process”.
Most recently, Ron moved to Bainbridge Island, just outside of Seattle. While Ron still maintains relationships from twenty years of work with L.A.-based M2G Media, here he’s teamed up with Mike Seidl, a Seattle-based Photographer, Videographer and Artist. “I have so much respect for Mike’s vision, it really shows in his amazing work.” Together they’ve formed Seidl / Stewart Video Productions (SeidlStewart.com), catering to clients who are looking for a unique perspective.
Ron’s vision and love for collaborating with creatives has given him the luxury of working with high-profile clients from Apple to Nissan Motors. In recognition for his talents, Ron has won a myriad of awards including Addy’s a Belding and Black Books AR100.
