Los Angeles based Robert Caldarone's work has been featured on the pages of Italian GQ, British OK!, Australian OK!, FHM, Next, The Daily, and New York magazines.
His advertising work includes campaigns for Dolce Mare Swimwear, Cinch Jeans, and outdoor billboard images for fashion line Odaingerous. He has also produced images for music clients such as EMI, Curb, and Sony BMG.
As a Fuji Film featured artist, Robert's personal work was displayed at the PDN International Photo Expo at the Jacob Javits Center in New York. He has also lectured at NYU (2008-2010) and held seminars for visiting R.I.S.D groups. Robert has appeared and was featured shooting in fashion themed movies such as Curve (2002) and Jay McCarroll's (of Project Runway fame) film Eleven Minutes (2008).
In addition to still photography, Robert employes some filmmaking into his body of work as well. His music videos for Billboard artists Moodroom ( Fowl Records ) and Leah Stargazing (Telescope ) have appeared on MTV2 and the Fuse Channel. His Leah Stargazing music video Someone to Count On was the 3rd place winner in the Canadian Independent Music Video Awards.
Robert's always held a deep passion for mixing the creative mediums of photography, music and film. Having drummed in more than a few punk bands in his restless youth, Robert blends a unique command of craft, attitude, and energy that can easily be found in his subject's delivery as well as his everyday direction when creating new works.
“I strive to create images with visual voice, confidence, and a bit of back-talk attitude ,” explains Robert.
In 2000 Robert made the exciting leap to a full-service art studio in New York City's historic Union Square (the original Photo District). Shooting and running a NYC studio for over 10 years in the same neighborhood that hosts the worlds top magazines, fashion agencies, ad agencies, and music venues gave Robert true fast-paced top-level industry exposure and experience. In 2010, Robert (along with many NYC creatives that were priced-out ) discovered the great city of Los Angeles as the perfect next big-city backdrop, offering beautiful outdoor locations, year-round lighting options, and some Venice Beach re-charging to those artistic batteries from over 10 years of creating images on NYC's frontline. Robert still provides clients affordable flexibility that can keep pace with any upcoming project.
Robert is based in Los Angeles, CA
