Within four years of picking up a camera, Robert Ferrone found himself shooting national ads for Gucci.  Now, with an acclaimed career spanning 20 years, Robert has proven he also has longevity and a remarkable ability to evolve, consistently adapting his work to meet the changing face of fashion—without sacrificing artistic integrity.

In his early career, Robert made a name for himself as one of a select few photographers to experiment shooting editorial with a wide-angle lens against creative and provocative backdrops.  These visionary works resulted in a constant shuttle between Los Angeles and Milan: shooting couture in Italy, swimwear in Brazil, and on the pages of over 50 magazines throughout Europe.

After years of seemingly endless travel between the U.S. and Europe, Robert began shooting more exclusively in the States, where his unique vision and striking images have since established him as one of the fashion industry’s premier photographers.  He has photographed over 150 television and film actors, and his work has appeared as both editorial and advertising content in publications including Vogue, Glamour, Town&Country, Interview, People, US Weekly, Los Angeles Magazine, Uomo, and Elle, the latter for whom he shot 26 national lingerie advertisements over a three-year period.  Additionally, Robert had the opportunity to produce and shoot the first advertisement cover-overlay for Life Magazine, mailed to over 50,000 subscribers.

In addition to publications, Robert’s work has been featured on numerous billboards and was chosen to be included in Shoreline, the acclaimed compilation piece from B. Martin Pedersen (Creative Director for Graphis Press), featuring some of the “most important photographers from around the world.”

Robert’s training includes photography studies, under Dan Morrill, at the prestigious American Academy of Art in Chicago.  Furthermore, as a working photographer, he had the rare and coveted opportunity to assist the legendary George Hurell.

On a personal note, Robert currently resides in Los Angeles with his newly adopted Beagle-mix, Katrina, a survivor of 2005’s devastating Hurricane Katrina.  When not working, Robert spends much of his time volunteering on behalf of cuddly creatures big and small with Last Chance for Animals, a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating animal exploitation.
