About Me

http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m620/bobbysportfolio/MMBanner1.jpg
I do what I love... I love what I do!

When I look back at all the wonderful people I have met through photography... the friends I've made... the opportunities I've received... and the "life moments" I've been allowed to experience, I can't help but consider myself to be one of the luckiest and most blessed people in the world.

Between fashion catalogs, product catalogs, magazine covers, newspaper advertising, billboards, and posters I've had more than 2,000 photos published.  When I'm not shooting photos I'm working on TV commercials, video productions and/or graphic design projects.

Promotional Videos for models are quickly becoming as important as photo portfolios!  They must, however, be shot and edited by a skilled professional. A great promotional video is a "MUST" for any serious model.  Contact me ASAP to schedule your video shoot.  Here are a few YouTube links to promo videos I have done for top models currently working in New York, Los Angeles, Europe, and Thailand:

If you are serious about your modeling career, you need to establish a working relationship with a published photographer.  Don't be afraid to contact me.  I am easy-going, down to earth and I guarantee you will have fun and enjoy your photo session.

My shooting rates are very reasonable and worth every penny.  (Message me... I will be happy to send you my rates.)  And yes... I often hire models for paid jobs after having had the opportunity to work with them on their portfolios.

Though most of my photography is for publication, I truly enjoy helping models build their portfolios.  I am happy to offer TFP to serious models.  Here's how it works: prove to me you are serious by booking a 2 or 3 look photo session.  I will shoot an additional 1 or 2 looks at TFP.
 
---> Purchase a 2 look session and receive 1 additional look TFP.
---> Purchase a 3 look session and receive 2 additional looks TFP.

I am willing to help you, if you are willing to put forth the effort to create something special.  Blow me away with your ideas, effort and attitude and I promise we'll shoot more than you have booked.

If you want to be noticed in this industry, remember...  Quality is more important than quantity.  Five or six "amazing" photos in your portfolio will open more eyes, turn more heads and help your career more than 20 "average" photos.

What are you waiting for!?!  The only person holding you back right now... is YOU!  If you are truly serious about modeling, YOU need to take charge, YOU need to take the next step, YOU need to make it happen!  Contact me and let's create something special!  I am looking forward to hearing from you!

"I contacted Bobby because I wanted to take my modeling portfolio in a whole new direction, focusing more on commercial/lifestyle. I knew Bobby was an amazing photographer but he went above and beyond all my expectations. He's so pleasant to work with!  From our very first phone conversation, I felt like we were friends. And shooting with him is a breeze. He's very organized, has great vision, and is lighthearted and fun. He even incorporated my children in the shoot. I couldn't be happier with the results of our shoot together. I'm so thankful that I now have photos I can actually use for the type of modeling I want to pursue. His knowledge and expertise has been a tremendous help to me and I look forward to working with him again soon!" Holly Smith, MM#: 3251599

"I have shot with many photographers, but Bobby took my portfolio to the next level.  His shoots are so much fun and the results are beyond amazing!  In fact, one of our photos was used in an ad in an international publication just months after our shoot!  It was definitely worth the small investment to work with him!  Bobby is not only a fabulous photographer... he has also become a great friend."

"OMG! Working with Bobby was the most fun I've ever had at a photo shoot. And the photos are UNBELIEVABLE!  The entire experience was worth every penny... not to mention, I was hired for 2 'paid' projects as a direct result of working with Bobby.  He is sweet, funny, honest and genuine. I love working with him!"

"Shooting with Bobby was an awesome experience! Finding photographers who provide high quality work and are comfortable to be around are hard to find. But Bobby definitely provides both! He is extremely easy going and makes the shoot lots of fun! At the same time, he is very professional about his work and will make sure that you get perfect shots! Models I HIGHLY recommend booking with Bobby!" MM#: 2673023

"My daughter (Sweet Samantha) had never modeled before and was a bit nervous before her shoot. In no time, Bobby had her relaxed, laughing and working the camera like a pro.  Needless to say, Samantha now adores him.  Two weeks after our shoot, she was published (and paid)... twice! One of Bobby's photos of Samantha was used as the cover for an eyeglasses catalog and a second was used in a magazine ad.  She easily made enough money to cover the cost of her photo session with plenty to spare."

"Working with Bobby was amazing! I'm new at modeling and he made my first experience in front of the camera wonderful!  He is very easy-going and a lot of fun.  I would LOVE to work with him again and would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs great photos... especially if they are just starting their modeling career!"
