- A good exclusive site where the works of Ron Harris are displayed.
- Videos great quality in Hi-Def (since June 2007 updates come at 6000 kbps!).
- Photos have high resolution - photo sets have three sizes (1000x667, 2000x1334 or 4000x2667).
- Photos have been well shot (nice concepts, too).
- Bonus access to Harris Archives is included.
- They often bring in more than 1 set per update (photo sets update every 4.17 days while videos every 5.58 days - averages).
- Lots of insanely gorgeous models featured - just look at Dillan, Sandy and the rest of the girls.
- Hi-res photos have zip files available.
- A model index is available.
- Site design and navi are nothing special.
- Though there are regular updates, the exact schedule can't be determined (updates come in random).
- Everything opens up in a new windows - bothersome to my mind.
- Number of sets per update is unpredictable as well.
- Ron's voice in the movies (especially his laugh) can be annoying at times.
- Some of the videos seem a bit short (less than 10 mins).
- Ron Harris is a high profile photographer and his skills undoubtedly reflect in his content. The overall quality (both content and model-wise) is very good and there is generally very little to be complained about here. I mean... check out the specifications for example... the 'lowest' video quality available is 1280x720, 1.10 Mbps - 80% of the almost 1500 pay sites I have visited don't even get close to those specifications. RonHarris is definitely worth checking out.

RonHarris is the official website of premier erotic photographer, Ron Harris. And in RonHarris, you'll find some of his best works as he photographs gorgeous girls with amazingly tight bodies in his signature erotic softcore style that other sites are now trying to emulate.
RonHarris is a softcore erotica site since you won't find a man in any of the photo or video content. The only man you'll ever find, or hear on the videos to be precise, is Ron Harris himself directing the action safely behind the camera.
Everything in RonHarris is all about a woman's beauty and sexuality as captured by Ron in all their splendor � and in high-definition photos and videos, to boot. RonHarris also doesn't airbrush or retouch his images so you actually see the girls as natural as they are, freckles and moles and all. But there's more to Ron Harris other than just the talents of the man in capturing the beauty of women at their erotic peak as he also delves into different fetishes every so often and still produces first-rate erotic porn content for every type of fetish he touches upon. To name a few, you'll find all kinds of foot and leg fetishes along with some pissing and watersports sets, and even the rarely depicted smoking fetish. Let's not forget to mention, though, the abundance of masturbation and toy playing scenes, and lest we forget, the extreme close-up shots. The girls in RonHarris are also drop-dead gorgeous, with some first-time amateurs as well as popular Penthouse Pets and internet porn stars thrown into the mix which really just makes his job much easier.
RonHarris' layout is easy to navigate around in with the main page displaying links to the type of content you're looking for. You'll find thumbnails here directing you to all the available updates in Ron Harris Studios, Best Of the Past brings you content from some more of Ron Harris' earlier sets, while the rest will be discusses in detail later. On top of all these are direct links to a models archive that has them listed with a helpful thumbnail photo of them alphabetically, all the video content available, a sneak peek into a couple of future updates, as well as another link to all the available updates in Ron Harris Studios. And as of this writing, RonHarris has 208 photo and 117 video sets.
The photo content are available in 3 resolutions. The recent ones give you the choice of 1000x667, 2000x1334 or 4000x2667 resolutions. I did see a set, however, where the highest resolution is at 4400x3000. Just a little bit higher but worth mentioning nonetheless. A good add-on here is that the high-resolution photo sets are available as ZIP file downloads with the file size indicated.
The videos are also available in 3 different bitrates (1MB, 3MB and 6MB!) and they're all in .WMV (1280x720) format. They're also available as .MP4 videos for your iPod or QuickTime program viewing. Ron Harris also likes to point out that theirs is the only site where you can find 6MB bitrate high-definition videos. Now, I'm not 100% sure whether or not that is true (some re-reviews of very huge, same quality sites are due soon... maybe the increased their bit-rates).
The bonus features in RonHarris are fairly limited but still worth mentioning because they all basically give you more of Ron Harris' high-quality content as well as a peek into his mind. There's an lengthy editorial called Naked Power about a power a woman's body has over men, as well ass access to a bonus site, HarrisArchives, which has even more of Ron Harris' past works including materials he shot for Playboy and Playboy TV. And speaking of his works with Playboy, these, too, are some of the bonuses you'll get, like 'Ron Harris' Camera Up Close & Dangerous� among other works which are in the process of being digitally re-mastered as he makes them all available bit by bit. There's also his popular Aerobicise erotic exercise TV show which is also being digitally re-mastered and made available bit by bit.
Considering the first-rate content that RonHarris is offering, the layout doesn't present this very well, offering what are mostly text-only links. A site with this good quality content should be presented much better - Why not go FemJoy style of design?
Also, only the recent sets dating back to November 2006 indicate when they were uploaded onto RonHarris. The others don't display a date, making the tracking of updates a hard and tedious process which makes me believe it's really random, with no exact schedule to really follow.
A new window opens with every click � which can get really, really bothersome really, really quick - but there's a reason to that as explained by Ron Harris himself. That's so if you accidentally close a window, you can easily find your way back. And considering the voluminous content available, that might make sense. But actually... I don't close windows accidentally very often to be honest so...
I have to say that Ron Harris is really top-notch, glamorous site both in quality and quantity. His photography skills really shine in his photo sets and his video sets show just how he brings out the best in his models. Add to the fact that he as some of the hottest amateurs, Pets and porn stars working for him and taking part in some of the first-rate masturbation and fetish sets around and it really becomes difficult trying to find a fault in a site this good.
A 1-month access to RonHarris at $34.99 is a little high for just a single site but considering the bang-up quality and quantity of the photo and video content available, that seems just about right. But if you're really a fan of his work and of the exceptionally beautiful girls he features here, then if you can afford it, I suggest you go for the $99.99 12-month access since you practically get 9 months of your membership for free. It depends whether or not you can afford it.
