My name is Jack Ronnel and I specialize in black and white fine art and documentary-style portrait photography. I work with film as well as digital. I love reportage photography and portraits. With documentary style portraits, without my intervention in any way, as opposed to directed photography, I am able to get the real human interaction, emotion and spontaneity, creating an involvement that the viewer can experience. I shoot reportage photography with musicians, artists, artisans, craftsmen and professionals. In my photography, I enjoy emulating classic b&w film, with a contrasty and grainy look that appear more “alive”, creating drama and a classical quality. I develop and print my work, as I enjoy the process very much.
