This guy is amazing no matter what side of the camera he is on! Like me, he spent a lot of time in front of a camera before picking one up himself. Unlike me he was actually really successful at it. I think Robert brings a different perspective into the shoot having worked with the best of the best for years as a model. A sense of knowing what the top photographers in the world are producing and being able to strive to that level is something that has helped me over the years. I know Robert brings this to his work as well. Way back when Robert and I had the same modeling agent and he was the guy everyone looked up to, so to have him on this team with me years later really is something special.

About Robert Merrill 

Photography has always been a passion in me.  I started taking pictures when I was in high school.  Periodically, I would pick up the camera and found myself lost for hours in the art and sensuality of creating something from what I saw.  
I have tried many things in life, having been a baseball player then a lawyer and then fell into the international modeling world as well as TV commercials.  I was fortunate enough to have lived 15 years in NYC, Paris and London as a model traveling the world and have had such a wonderful experience and did advertising campaigns for clients such as Armani, Ralph Lauren, Burberry to name a few.  I also became the face of Gillette commercials in the 1990's as well as the notorious shirtless window washing Diet Coke guy in TV commercials.  During this time, while shooting with the likes of photographers Bruce Weber, Steven Meisel, Victor Skrebneski, Matthew Rolston, I was constantly watching them and their lighting and creativity.  What a photography lesson it was!  
I now live in Los Angeles.  I have been acting in TV, Films and Commercials and some of my recent credits include Nancy Drew, Californication, CSI NY, CSI Miami, 90210, Cialis, Cadillac, Chevy, and more.  
Well...let's get back to photography!  Why photography now, when I appear to be so busy with acting and producing?  Because it is a passion and I can't stay away!   I have experience both in front and behind the camera, and I think that gives me something extra to give back to you.  I have seen some of the product out there, and I feel that headshots in LA can be better.  And that is what I am trying to do.  
I am so grateful to all of the talents out there who have given me the opportunity to photograph them.  It is a collaboration where we both give and the photographs are special and approachable confidence.
