“In every sense, Bob proved to be one of the best people I have ever worked with. He is a committed professional and a good person. He is deeply knowledgeable about all aspects of product photography, and perhaps of greater importance, he is creative. He knows how to use his camera and his post-production tools to convey the essence of the subject in an appealing manner. As our “DP”, Bob’s work gave our content a polished look that set a new standard. Always looking to raise the bar, Bob suggested that we should present videos online, and again his work exceeded expectations. For more than two years, in a deadline-driven setting, Bob delivered beautiful images and video on time and on budget, and I always looked forward to our meetings. Working with Bob was one of the most rewarding collaborations of my 16 years in digital and print publishing.”
-Mike Disher, Owner of AeriaLab (Former Editor, WatchTime Magazine)

“It is with great confidence that I can recommend Robert (Bob) for all of your still photography needs. He has detailed knowledge of all the technical and creative components in his field: lighting, presentation, pre-press, (I have also seen him do special effects), etc. In addition, he is a true gentleman with the utmost integrity. It is truly a pleasure working with Bob.”
-Meredith Ballen-Brownstein (Former Art Director, Metropolitan Museum of Art)
