My name is Robert and I've been photographing people ever since I can remember. I just started doing this professionally about 6 years ago and I'm having a blast. I'm low key, very easy going and I have a somewhat dry sense of humor. I love to have fun and make jokes.
I really enjoy taking vintage type shots but enjoy all of it actually. 30-40's Hollywood type to artistic (tasteful) nudes.
I do this because I LOVE it!!! I love creating and working with creative people. The process of creating and working with like people is one of the most rewarding things I have ever done in my life. I am still like a big kid! Having FUN might be the most important thing in my work. It's just gotta be fun! I cannot think of anything that is more Fun than what I do... Wellll... ok maybe one thing...
Sometimes I can look at one of my images and can't believe I did that, and you know what... It's because "I" didn't. I had the help of the Makeup Artist, Hair person and the MODEL! It's a team effort and I appreciate all the help I receive on creating an image. I cannot tell you how much I love all of what I do, this has been the just the best ride ever in my life.
MODELS: Escorts are always welcome to my shoots. I have NO problem with this.
Sorry bout this, but I just have to request that even though Escorts are welcome, I prefer it not be your boyfriend or husband. I need your full attention and bf's and hubbys are just too much of a distraction. This would include Male friends as well.
Thanks for your understanding.
Yes... there's More!
This is NOT directed at anyone in particular. And, I think I'm gettin cranky in my old age.. ha!!! BUT... if we schedule a shoot, PLEASE don't schedule it after a BIG Birthday bash or after a Late night out. It's difficult to work with a hangover or even a no show, so please, and I understand for a lot of you this isn't your job, lets TRY to get good images and not sabotage ourselves.
Hey Photographers... First and foremost thank you for all your praise. I really appreciate it. Unfortunately, at this time, I do not have the time or resources to respond to messages regarding what I do to my images (lighting, setup, photoshop, etc.). I really do apologize as it's difficult for me to say that without sounding like an A-Hole, which I am not. And, it has nothing to do with anyone personally, so please do not take it that way.
Thanks for your understanding,
Special Thanks to:
Julia Gerace, she got me started on this whole pin-up thing... See what you've done Julia!!! By the way... Thanks!
Jacquie Laire... MUA... Where are you???
Liz and Fernie!!! You two are AMAZING MUA's!
Models... I love each one of you for giving me your best, I only hope I have reciprocated.
