Rob Kristian is a man who knows what it takes to make the best out of his talent and skills. Passionate about art he learn the techniques of analog photography all by himself. And by doing so he followed in the footsteps of several other great self taught photographers whom he admires. For more than 15 years Rob found his passion for photography using film to shoot his still life subjects in the deserts of Arizona. But when he saw that the attention of the audience started to shift, he realized he needed to change his tactics.
To keep up with the high paced demands of the modeling world, Rob Kristian started to focus on digital photography a couple of years ago. After mastering this specific form of the art he soon found himself working full time for model agencies, dividing his time between Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Rob’s experience in both analog photography and years of still life shootings became the foundation on which he built an impressive portfolio of model photography. And it wasn’t before long that Rob started to get the attention of both print and online publications.
Rob Kristian’s work with models has been featured in a 3 page spread for Intense Magazine, published out of Colombia. Also 3 of his portraits were selected to grace the covers of books by author Sara York. Rob Kristian recognized the new interest in male photography by a bigger audience and found his niche. Recently he has returned to the deserts of Arizona which he calls home. No doubt he will there spend some time on still liVes, his first passion. But of course he will not abandon his new found devotion to model photography, and noticeably male photography. May we suggest a combination of the two in the Arizona deserts? –BM-
