“As a rule I don’t enjoy being photographed, and usually it shows. But Roy intuitively grasped how to turn an uneasy relationship with the camera into an asset. That is no small feat and resulted in quite possibly the most genuine set of photographs I’ve ever had taken.”
I have been photographed by Roy on a number of occasions, and his artistry, perfectionism, and creativity are truly stellar.
He has managed to capture aspects of my physicality that are so vastly different in each shot because of his understanding of light, pace and timing. He manages to extract beauty in ways that only a true artist can.
It's a pleasure working with him.
I’m not a model and, in the past, I wasn’t very comfortable in front of the camera. So, I showed up to Roy’s studio a bit nervous and not really sure what to do, however, his easy going personality and compassion put me at ease as soon as I walked in the door. Before even getting in front of the camera, we talked about our mutual objectives for the session and, most importantly, we set the intention to just have fun. He gave me some pointers on body position and angle but, overall, the reason I loved my pictures were because I felt comfortable and at ease throughout the process. I didn’t feel that I was being judged for not being model perfect. We just tried things. Some worked, some didn’t. It was no big deal for Roy. He was game for anything. I love being in front of Roy’s camera as it now feels like playing rather than trying to be “perfect”. The result are pictures that I feel natural and beautiful. I’ve worked with Roy several times since my first experience and have more fun each time.
