Who is Rob?
Rob Cale Photographer (part time)
Since the end of 2006 I have been involved in smaller projects and assignments mainly in the fields of music, automobile, portrait and travel.
In addition to the documentation, photography also has an artistic aspect for me. A photo should not only be a simple image of the situation, but also reflect the mood and, if possible, a spatial depth. And sometimes it can and may take longer, until the picture is in the box as desired. Photography is also a balance to my main job as a management consultant and trainer and a welcome contrast in slowing down from the often too hectic environment.
I taught myself the photographic techniques and tried new things again and again. I like to use targeted sharpness gradients as a means of design - for this reason, many of my pictures are shot with high-speed lenses and open aperture.
Some of my photos were published on websites of musicians, now and then there is also a publication in the music press (Bluesnews, Goodtimes) or daily and weekly newspapers (Süddeutsche Zeitung, Focus). I design promotional materials and advertisements for musicians and accompany CD productions, ranging from photos in the studio, on stage or portraits to complete art direction of CDs and booklets. I am also regularly booked as a tour photographer.
For the year 2018, portraiture photography - especially the topic headshots - is one of my focus topics. Here I am always looking for models to build a first portfolio in this area. I have a small studio in Langenhorn (North Frisia). But I am also very often in my office in Langenhagen (Hanover). If interested, please get in touch with me.
Maybe see you soon!
