About Me …

Rodney Margison

I am an award-winning professional photographer based in Bloomington, Indiana, and working regularly in Cincinnati, Ohio, and New York City. I have an extensive background in newspaper photojournalism, but I now concentrate on commercial, editorial and fine art portraiture, product photography, and personal portraiture that includes professional headshots; fashion, fitness and beauty portraits; and intimate portraiture—all alongside my continued documentary/reportage work.

I have been photographing professionally since the late 1970s. After serving an apprenticeship under my father—a part-time professional photographer—I began shooting sports and spot news events as a freelance contributor to my hometown’s daily newspaper. I studied photojournalism at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, and later studied 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.    READ MORE …
