A lifelong storyteller and multidisciplinary communications professional, Robert began his early career primarily as a screenwriter—developing stories, penning scripts, and pitching for television series such as Star Trek: The Next Generation, its subsequent spinoffs, and other series. During this time, his childhood passion for the art and science of photography simultaneously emerged as part of his suite of storytelling skills. His early fluency in the language of cinema, coupled with a universal aptitude for creative conceptualization and visualization, have thus helped him to both recognize and capture moments that tell a story within a single frame.
A member of the International Cinematographer’s Guild, 669, Robert has produced imagery for motion pictures such as The Predator, Wonder, and The Miracle Season, and for high-profile television series, including The Twilight Zone, The X-Files, Lost in Space, Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Supernatural, among others. Over the past 25 years, his photographic assignments have also included wedding, portrait, travel, and editorial photography for personal, news, business, and humanitarian organizations.
Robert’s clients have included CBS, Netflix, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros. Entertainment, The CW Network, B2ten/Active for Life, Fujifilm, the African Lion and Environmental Research Trust, Metro News, and a variety of cable, streaming, and media outlets and production companies. His photographs have been featured in numerous trade publications, from Entertainment Weekly to the New York Times.
Throughout his professional career he’s remained a passionate aficionado of all things photographic, from the artistic to the technical. He’s been a contributing editor for Nikon Owner Magazine for 15 years, has both conducted and co-produced photography workshops, and is a global brand ambassador for Fujifilm.
