Photography and Consulting
Ron Scherl is a professional photographer. He’s worked for major publications such as Time, Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times and Rolling Stone, covering news events and making portraits of famous people. He spent a lot of time in theaters and opera houses making actors and singers look good and documenting productions. He also founded a stock photography agency, was early into digital imaging and bought an interest in a house in the south of France.
In 2002, Ron took a job at Thermage that lasted almost seven years. In that time he unlearned everything he knew about making people look good and designed lighting systems to reveal everything about the surface of skin. He created photographic protocols for numerous clinical trials, photographing many himself and teaching medical staff how to get the same results.
Currently, he works part time at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, color managing images of the collection and running an image database. He is a consultant to companies such as Zeltiq, Cutera and Solta as well as individual medical practices, continues to shoot clinical trials, and lectures at medical conferences, most recently at ASDS 2010.
