Specializing as a lifestyle portrait artist and wedding photographer, Roberto’s clientele has come to rely on him to capture images from all of life’s special events, from maternity to newborns, tots to ‘tweens’, High School Seniors to summer family vacations and even intimate images captured through the San Francisco Pin-Ups division of his studio.

Roberto is a member of the Professional Photographers of America. He is a PPA Certified Master Photographer and holds numerous awards.
His style of photography is young and trendy, a Modern Fusion blending fashion photography, classical fine art portraiture and editorial storytelling. Roberto's photography is three dimensional and dramatic, creating form, bringing depth, drawing attention to where it is needed. His fine art work has been exhibited in several different galleries in California. He is constantly reinventing himself. He is a member of the Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of California, Professional Photographers of the Santa Clara Valley and the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. He is a Certified Photographer. This means that he is one of less than 3% of all photographers in the USA who have earned that degree.
His Photographic Art captures the spirit of the people he photographs. The happiness, love and pure joy expressed in a look, a touch, a smile. He does not just photograph the things you have or the people you know, he photographs the feelings and emotions you have. It is his passion and his privilege to create photographic art from those little things that mean so much.
Roberto's passion for the visual arts and many years of photographic artistry come through in every fine art image he creates. He takes great pride in creating a unique experience for each client, starting with a personally-designed photo session that produces a custom portfolio of images and services that will excite, delight and inspire for years to come.
Working with materials of the highest quality, he customizes each photography session and hand-work each image to create art pieces as diverse and beautiful as the lives of the people in them.
The images he captures will be in your family for hundreds of years, handed down from generation to generation. These pictures will become a record in your family history and a treasure that will make you smile each time you look at them.
To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things. _Ansel Adams
