Photographer Bio: Rip Williams

Rip Williams - photographer headshotWhat has two thums and wants to build your brand?

Me. I'm a coorporate refugee-cum-artist. Of course, everyone says that they're "uniquely qualified." As it happens, I've actually spent most of my professional carreer on my client's side of the fence. These days, I get the opportunity to bring a dynamic mix of business acumen, artistic insight and technical skill to bear on your imagery. See, before I was a photographer, I spent years as a marketing manger for Bacardi Brands. Before that, I rocked Robert Mondavi Winery, Jagermeister, Samuel Adams and Brown Foreman (Jack Daniels, Herradura, etc.)... and more others than I can count.  I've done multi-channel brand development, budgeting, media campaigns, buying, collateral inventory, and personnel management - all from my clients' side ofthe fence.  Branding? Roger. I get it. Non-Profit sector? Yep. That too... running a well-respected, nationaly-syndicated not-for-profit. Having fudged the line of being a creative for a decade before, I finally left the suit-and-tie grind behind in 2004 to become full-time. Since then, my passion has been all about imagery... YOUR imagery.

I endeavor to provide you and your clients with ultra high-quality results:  on time, every time, and on budget...since 1993.
