WPPI: Who are your greatest influences in the art world?
RG: John Quincy Adams once wrote that if you’re a leader, your actions will inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more. Those simple words speak to the leadership that has been shown by great creatives who have inspired me in my journey as a professional photographer. Although I’d hesitate to cite any single photographer or artist as my primary inspiration, I greatly admire the works of Dorothea Lange, Richard Avedon and Ansel Adams.
Some of Rob’s coolest and most interesting corporate photography clients include Microsoft, AT&T, Samsung, Nikon, Oracle, Penguin Group, Disney Book Group, Hyperion Books, Honeywell, General Motors, Scott’s Miracle-Gro, Nestlé, HEAD Penn Racquet Sports, and Reebok. His photography has been featured in loads of different publications but the ones you probably care about, and have heard of, are the New York Times, People, US Weekly, USA Today, TV Guide, Brides, Rangefinder, Shutterbug, the Huffington Post, Perez Hilton, The Advocate, Out Magazine, the Daily Mail (UK), Good Magazine, Harvard Magazine, Austin Monthly Magazine, Lawn & Landscape Magazine, Lacrosse Magazine, and the 2009 Nikon International Calendar. He has also appeared on the TODAY show.
