"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play,
his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation,
his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision
of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing.
To him he is always doing both."

-- James Michener

"I had the pleasure of working with Ron as a first time director, and his knowledge of his craft and his patience made it possible for me to successfully bring my vision to life. A true professional in every respect"

Nathan Fisher
Gonzo Entertainment

“Ron is a dynamic DP who is most versatile and extremely energetic with an always “can do” type of approach on getting the shot. Very creative with lighting and composition and always a pleasure to work with, a real trooper in adverse weather conditions or any unforeseeable circumstance that would require patience and long suffering. I've worked with him for several years on many shoots and its always been a great experience”.

Daniel Cedolia
Sno Sled Entertainment / Memo Vision Productions

"Ron is not just the perfect cameraman to have on your production, he is categorically a most conscientious, hardworking, honest, talented, committed, and motivated resource. His work shows off a flare for understanding the technical side of the gig without sacrificing tenderness, elegance, respect, and above all, innate talent. He came highly recommended to me, made himself immediately available, and was able to disarm the subjects with a whisper. Hire Ron Coons and you don't have to worry about the video or stills on your project again".

Dan Nash
Founder/Artist Manager
JustGreat Management

"Ron always worked at an above and beyond pace during our project. Even though he was only hired for the project he also worked as though he had ownership in it. We have worked with him as Director of Photography on a couple of projects and he has showed the same attention to details during all of them. Results and the quality of the end project are very important to him. This level of involvement certainly showed in our recorded footage at the end of our production. We feel that Ron has the production skill level comparable to anyone in this field and if needed, we would not hesitate to hire him again. We would highly recommend him for any project you may be involved in, and I can tell you that he definitely fits the quote "If you commit deliver or don't commit" .
