“When you find a career that doesn’t feel like work – you know you’ve found your calling. When you can no longer distinguish between work and play; There never seems like there are enough hours in the day, but you nevertheless feel a sense of accomplishment; When you’re excited to get your day started almost on a daily basis; Life, in general, feels pretty damn good; When you consider yourself one of the luckiest people in the world; When you can’t wait to finish whatever it is that you’re working on, but only so that you can start on your next project.”
That’s how we feel about our chosen profession!
Rob is the owner of Image Plus Photography. Rob lives is Belleville with his wife Robyn and their three daughters. From a very early age, Rob had always had an interest in photography and people. With his first Kodak camera taking pics of friends and family, to the high school yearbook photographing the schools’ clubs and classmates, to technical and commercial training at the New York Institute of Photography for wedding/portrait photography.
Rob began in 2006 as a wedding photographer. With a strong foundation of “people photography”, He has spent the last 12 years building on that foundation by listening to what the client requests, learning from other professional photographers and by continuing his education.
Rob has welcomed the “digital” age, noting it as a smarter way to provide the Bride and Groom and their family and friends with a greater number of pictures, styles and special effects with very little increase in delivery time and price. Photographing the event digitally allows him to produce simple alterations such as cropping and color enhancement, to converting color photos to black and white, and creating special effects after the fact whereas previously, it all had to be done at the time of the event. It also allows for the production of CD’s, USB drives and DVD slideshows of the event as well as online viewing, enabling the Bride and Groom to view the event and share it with many others easily.
If Rob has a style, it would be as an edgy, creative, think outside the box – wedding photographer. Although I still believe in those traditional photographs (posed bride and groom, the bride and the bridesmaids, etc.) Candid’s are also extremely important! I go looking for unique pictures that are creative and with ALL aspects of your wedding day .
