Top hair, beauty and fashion photographer:

A little about me:

Roberto was born in El Salvador and raised in the United States (Miami, Florida).  He discovered his love for photography at a very young age.  Fascinated by the entire photographic process, his curiosity led him to the darkroom at age ten.  Soon after, he joined photography clubs in school after his father gave him a 35mm camera. He became a contributing photographer and later photo editor for the university newspaper and yearbook. While assisting several photographers in Miami, he discovered fashion and realized the potential for creativity. His father’s sudden death forced him to move back to his home country of El Salvador, where he continued his love for photography working as a commercial photographer for many multi national clients in the Central American region. In 2000, He decided to take a year off and go to Paris. A year later he started teaching photography at Parsons Paris. He divided his time by teaching, assisting fashion photographers and testing for several model agencies. In 2004 he moved to London when he was recruited by a major hair-care brand to be their main photographer.  He was responsible for photographing all of their major world-wide campaigns for all of their brands. Roberto considers himself a photography geek always thinking of subjects and different lighting. His world revolves around photography and is equally at home on location or in a studio.  He still lectures from time to time at the prestigious London College of Fashion.  He is known for his romantic and sexy imagery with a touch of class and strong composition.  Roberto works out of his own boutique studio in Battersea (www.raspberry-jam.com).
