Robert George is one of the most sought-after portrait photographers working in America today. Trained as a travel photographer, he was drawn into portrait photography when clients begin requesting corporate headshots and event photography. He has covered weddings across the U.S. and Europe, presidential campaigns, film stars and celebrities, debutantes, and families, and most recently the music scene in Nashville. Last year he made portraits at the Sundance Film Festival and the Iowa State Fair. Elegant Bride described his photographs as “brilliant, luminous and simply stunning.” He employs classical studio techniques, photojournalism and paparazzi styles blended with a fine art eye. His work appears in numerous public and private collections. The winner of many awards, Mr. George maintains a studio/atelier in Maplewood for clients and small exhibitions.
