My name is Rob, photographer and owner of RoBeary Images now out of Dallas, TX. I have been a photographer since 1984 when everything was shot on film. That does mean I know how to get a correct exposure and composition without the help of photoshop or any other editing program. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Photography in 1996 from East Tennessee State University specializing as an Art Photographer with emphasis in Wildlife, Landscape, Architecture and Figure Study. I no longer shoot figure study unless contracted to do so by a client. I also worked at NASA for 12 years as a photographer taking images of the International Space Station as it was being built on ground. I started working in the Commercial Photography field in 2009 because I found it to be challenging as well as exciting. I bring my sense of Landscape and Architecture to my images to create interesting backgrounds for my shoots instead of plain, non thought out backgrounds.
There are a few concepts that I enjoy shooting but I do not like to do the same images over and over again just because it worked for one model. There is something to be said for diversity in a portfolio. If you want the same images that "Joe Blow" did for the last hundred models then go see "Joe Blow." If you want something different then check me out and see what you think.
I love working with people that are positive, energetic and professional in order to make stellar images.
Escorts are always allowed at my photo shoots. But be prepared to perhaps help with some of the work. ;-))
----------------------------------No Call No Show-------------------------------------
People that do a no call no show on a shoot, in my opinion, are unprofessional. There are times when that can be forgiven but not often.
It does cost a photographer, just like the model, that has more equipment than just a cheap camera and a camera flash to pack and go to a location or studio shoot.
Let me re-emphasize
If a model and I set up a shoot and the model does not show up or cancels within an hour of the shoot with no viable reason, in my opinion, is unprofessional. Same as it would be if I, the photographer, did the same thing to the model. Things happen; give a shout, let the other parties involved know what is going on and not just leave them waiting around wasting time and money.
Also goes for messages. If you cannot return a message, even if the answer is "no", then how do you expect to be treated as a professional. That is why each message or tag I get I send out a response.
