Who is Rob?
Rob Cale Photographer (part time)
Since the end of 2006, I have been working on smaller projects and commissions mainly on music, automobiles, portraits and travel.
Besides documentation, photography also has an artistic aspect for me. A photo should not only be a simple representation of the situation, but should 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. The photography is also a balance to my other job as a management consultant and trainer and a welcome contrast to the slowing down from the often too hectic environment.
I have taught myself the photographic techniques and tried out new ones again and again. I like to use specific focus gradients as a design tool - that's why many of my pictures are created with high speed lenses and open aperture.
Some of my photos have been published on the 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 also design promotional material and advertisements for musicians and accompany CD productions, starting from photos in the studio, on stage or portraits up to the complete art direction of CDs and booklets. I am also regularly booked as a tour photographer.
See you soon maybe!
