Ronald Beverly is a photographer/digital imagist residing in the DMV (District, Maryland and Virginia) for over 30 years. His academic studies produced a BFA from Howard University and an MFA from George Washington University. Inspired by the masters of large format film camera work, Ronald developed a sensibility towards texture and detail by emphasizing tactile quality of the elements within the photographic composition while possessing the need to capture and finesse the elusive quality of light as reoccurring characteristics in his work. Over time Mr. Beverly pursued a commitment to the craftsmanship, aesthetics and philosophies of photography while bridging the gap between conventional film and digital imaging. This level of commitment allowed Mr. Beverly to appear as a panelist/presenter during the 2011 and 2012 SECAC (Southeastern College Art Conference) annual conferences giving papers entitled Pixel Chiaroscuro: The Advancements and Enhancements of the Analog Image and B.R.E.W.: New Work in Collaborative Art respectively. Other recent accomplishments include a group exhibition at the Driskell Center titled Convergence: Jazz, Film and the Visual Arts at the University of Maryland/College Park, honorable mention from the International Photography Awards/Lucie Foundation online juried competition, juried exhibition at the LaGrange National XXVll annual in LaGrange, Ga. and a solo exhibition entitled A Point In Time at the Black Creek Art Center in Hartsville, SC. These opportunities as well as being a recent recipient of the Individual Artist Award from Maryland State Arts Council provides encouragement and support to explore and refine bodies of work relevant to the artist as he continues to interpret, capture and communicate the world we live in.
