There’s been a hiatus since I started at The Photo Group back in November, and we’re ready to move on 2013’s first WPPI Member of the Month! Each month, we plan to feature one of our members, and his or her accomplishments. I’m going to be looking for photographers we may not have had the chance to meet personally, but who are creating great images, and have forged their way into their markets.
This month, we’re featuring fellow New Yorker, Roberto Falck. I was absolutely thrilled to read Roberto Falck’s name during our WPPI awards night in Las Vegas. He won the Grand Award in the Album category this year for his well deserved “Souls of Morocco.”
Roberto and I go back many years, and helped each other as second shooters way back when we both were getting our studios off the ground. He was a pleasure to work with, and my clients always loved his soothing, and carefree personality. His ability to put his subjects at ease is a skill many photographers only wish to achieve. This was very evident in his photos he featured in his award winning album.
Using his abilities, I’ve always admired Roberto’s bridal portraits and I loved watching him work. From a technical standpoint he always keeps things simple, traveling very lightweight, relying on available light, and simple, quick on the fly techniques.
Roberto now has a successful wedding and portrait studio in NYC. Check out his official “Member of the Month” article with additional images on WPPI online, and if you’re not already, sign up to become a member of the Photo Group and showcase your own work in our “Member of the Month” series.
