About Robert

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, Lucifer, Cialis, Cadillac, Lexus, and more.  

Well...let's get back to photography!   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 feel that expression is everything, and I capture that unique essence in everyone of my subjects.

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.
