My father passed away on May 31, 2018 from cancer and I am still not used to life without him. He was being treated at City of Hope and I wanted to use my photography as a way to bring awareness to this devastating disease that has affected so many people. So I volunteered at City of Hope for the month of November commonly known as No-Shave November. I captured the doctors and nurses images as they grew their facial hair to bring awareness to men's cancer.
Do me a favor and call your dad and tell him how much you love him today and make him get a yearly check up! My dad was smart, funny, and a great cook. RIP Ron Cohen.
I Love You Dad

I am a portrait, commercial, and editorial photographer based in Los Angeles with my wife, two sons, and bull terrier. I fell in love with photography when shooting family vacations with my plastic film camera at age 5. I was blown away with dramatic lighting when I saw Bladerunner with my dad. When not behind the camera I spend my time writing & recording songs and coaching my kid’s soccer & basketball teams.
