The Ron Schmidt art brand is owned by the creative duo of Ron and Amy Schmidt. Ron is the internationally award-winning photographer behind some of the world’s most clever dog images.

Ron created his niche in conceptual, witty dog imagery by chance. It began when he created a holiday card for his commercial clients. The card featured his yellow lab carrying a Christmas tree and axe and was an instant success. Amy joined Ron bringing her background in communications, marketing, and business production to the company. Together, they have created an artistic venture that spans the globe and has captured the hearts of dog lovers worldwide.  

As a conceptual photographer and artist, Ron brings a strong sense of design and storytelling to his images, allowing him to create timeless and engaging collectible artwork that will be enjoyed and cherished for years to come.

Ron’s art has been featured in public installations, magazines, publications, and on products sold worldwide. Clients include Hallmark, Penguin Random House, Scholastic, LL Bean, Boston Children’s Hospital, and The US Post Office.
