Curve, Fashion and Beauty Photographer based in the UK:
Born in El Salvador and raised in the United States, Roberto discovered a love for photography when his father gifted him a 35mm camera. At the impressionable age of ten, his curiosity about the photographic process led him to the darkroom, and saw him joining photography clubs in school.
Thinking from strength to strength Roberto’s talent was evident and he soon landed the title of contributing photographer and later the photo editor for his university newspaper and yearbook.
Whilst assisting several photographers in Miami, Roberto discovered fashion and realized his potential to push images and creativity on another medium.
Drawing from his knowledge and experience Roberto took a visionary approach to capitalize on steady income working for many multinational clients in the Central American region.
In 2000, he decided to take a year off and go to Paris. A year later saw him teaching photography at Parsons Paris; dividing his time between teaching, assisting fashion photographers and testing for several model agencies.
Roberto’s move to London happened in 2004 where he was quickly recruited by the Tigi brand to shoot their advertising, making him responsible for photographing all of their major world-wide campaigns, including the multiple internal brands.
Roberto continues to sell evoking, moving, inspirational and journalistic stories by documenting these through his images and moving images on location or in studio. His work has been featured in Vogue, W Magazine, Another Magazine, and L’Officiel, amongst other international titles.
He has collaborated with Jimmy Choo, Unite Haircare, British Hair, Cadence London, The London Barber, Tigi Haircare, Bed Head, Toni&Guy, Levi's Dockers, Ponds, Dove, Axe, Unilever, Budweiser and Coca Cola; working for the advertising giants McCann, BBDO, Young and Rubicam, Ogilvy and Mather, Grey Advertising, Ammirati Puris Lintas.
An ever evolving creative, Roberto is now focusing his vision and photographic output for the curve market, with support and in collaboration with the top UK Curve Agencies who are throwing their weight behind him and his ideas. He still lectures at The London College of Fashion.
