Robert Rodriguez Jr is a professional landscape photographer specializing in landscapes of the Hudson Valley, as well as other parts of the world. Robert graduated from the Berklee College of Music and was a music producer for 15 years before transitioning to photography and visual story telling.
Seeking to capture the beauty or convey the emotional qualities of a place or moment in nature, his images have elicited responses ranging from evocative, to spiritual and breathtaking. They often carry musical overtones and rely heavily on common qualities such as composition, rhythm, and drama. His images have appeared in numerous publications including the NY Times, and his work has been used by many non-profit organizations including the Mohonk Preserve, and Audubon Society.
Dedicated to conservation, his photography is featured extensively by Scenic Hudson, a non-profit organization dedicated to land and nature preservation in the Hudson Valley. In addition, he has edited and produced documentary films highlighting the natural beauty of the region.
Robert is also a Canson Infinity ambassador, a select group of hand-picked international artists that uphold and exemplify the Canson heritage of paper making since 1557. Canson's commitment to seek artists of the highest caliber has been an important role in continuing its legacy in creativity, innovation, and quality.
Robert conducts photography workshops and seminars in the region on a regular basis, and is often an invited speaker to industry associations.
