Who I Am

Rodney Margison PhotographyI am an award-winning professional photographer in Bloomington, Indiana. Previously a photojournalist exclusively, I now specialize in fine art, commercial and editorial portraiture and still-life (product) photography, as well as personal photography that includes professional headshots, fashion/glamour portraits and intimate/boudoir portraits; all alongside my continued work in reportage.

I have been photographing professionally since the late 1970s while still in high school. After serving an apprenticeship under my father—himself a part-time professional photographer—I began shooting sports and spot news events as a freelance contributor to the daily newspaper in my hometown of Columbus, Indiana.I studied photojournalism at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and later, fine art and commercial photography at Academy of Art University in San Francisco, which ultimately led to the two distinctly different paths my career has taken.
