I joined the newspaper club in high school and at our first meeting the teacher asked,
“We need someone to photograph a banquet in the gym later this week, anyone interested?”
Nobody’s hand went up. I gave it five more seconds before the silence became too much - I raised my hand. The teacher dropped a small bag with a Canon DSLR on my desk and the following week the photos I took at the event were in print - I loved it.
Now I’m 25, a full-time strength coach in Somerville MA, and I’m carrying a camera as much as I can. I enjoy my personal projects but I also photograph weddings, engagements, portraits, corporate events, and I’ve helped small business’ create images to help spread their message and sell their products.
This website is where everything comes together for me. It’s where I showcase my work - both personal and professional, where I talk about my experiences, share my thoughts on all things photography, and maybe I’ll sell a print here-and-there (if there’s interest).
If you want to work with me or have questions about what I do just head over to my contact page and fill it out, I’ll respond quick.
"Rob was the PERFECT choice when I needed some professional photos for some marketing materials. He was prompt, professional, and easy to work with during our session. Rob is able to keep the mood light and comfortable throughout the session which clearly comes through in the pictures. Ultimately, it was clear his main goal was to get the best quality photos that suited my needs and kept working until he knew that we were BOTH happy with the work he had done. I would highly recommend Rob for your photography needs!"

“Rob was an excellent choice for our engagement photos! I actually know Rob from his work as a strength coach so when I found out he also did photography I was excited to have him take our pictures. His demeanor directing the photo shoot was very similar to his style in the gym -- he gave clear directions but let us apply our own take to them. He led us with prompts and poses but also just photographed us as we interacted naturally with each other. Both types of shots turned out great! Rob was flexible even when we had to make a last minute change to our shoot location. Even in a new place he quickly and easily found great spots with nice lighting. Rob was very quick to respond and professional in all our communication. He answered questions about what to expect before the shoot and quickly provided us with the digital photos afterward. I highly recommend working with Rob! "

“Having previously worked with Rob, I knew exactly who to call when I needed professional photos for my website. I was not disappointed. The photos came out even better than I had hoped. More than that, Rob took an experience that has always been awkward and uncomfortable and somehow made it fun and light-hearted. He helped me relax and have fun in front of the camera, which clearly showed in the final product. I couldn’t recommend him enough.”
