All about RB Photography - robertberteraphotography
Personal Bio
My passion for photography began 40 years ago when my father presented me with a Canon camera, a used 50mm lens, and a book on photography. They were the best gifts I ever received and I have been perfecting my skills ever since. Photography changed the way I viewed the world around me - a simple shadow or reflection became an opportunity to capture light from a different perspective and colors and textures became tools to create moods or suggest emotions. Viewing life through the lens of a camera allowed me to slow down the world a little bit and become part of it. Every scene became a potential image to capture. Photography became a wonderful addiction. I feel at peace each time I venture out to capture an image. I have attended photography seminars and workshops to learn the basics of the craft, and constructed B&W darkrooms in our homes, where I spent countless hours learning the secrets of light. Now my darkroom is digital and I use state of the art software to process images in a timely and professional manner. Even with all of the advances in color photography, the timeliness of black and white imagery remains as a personal favorite of mine. Taking a person’s photograph is very personal to me. I strive to make every customer feel comfortable and work with them to achieve their ideal image - images that tell the story of their life, their day, or just a split second in time. I never tire of reviewing images after a session and seeing how my concepts and ideas materialized into inspirational images. Seeing the expression on a client’s face when they view their images for the first time is what makes photography a passion, not a job.
