About

Los Angeles based editorial and advertising photographer Robert Gallagher (http://www.gallagherphoto.com/ ) shoots athletes, celebrities, world leaders and photo- essays for Time, Sports Illustrated, People magazine, Empire Magazine, Q, Men’s Vogue, The Guardian and Wall St Journal. Commercial clients include Nike, Pepsi, Reebok, Canon, Kodak and Merrill Lynch.

Born in London, 1969, currently based in Santa Monica, CA. As a kid, Robert fell off a six foot wall backwards onto concrete …. on his head. As a teenager, delivered newspapers in snow, driving rain and biting wind on dark winter mornings. Not fun. He served many pints in North East England pubs, one time got punched, kept serving. Also not much fun. Early in career shot Deepak Chopra, accidentally referred to him as Tupak. He didn’t notice. Robert can’t pronounce his r’s, which is a shame when you consider his name. Can talk backwards ( perhaps due to the fall). Life lessons so far- you always have to be able to laugh!

Photography became something more to him after studying W. Eugene Smith and Richard Avedon’s ‘In The American West’. “From then on, I realized i wanted to capture the essence of people in pictures.”

In December 2001, two months after the day that changed the world, his first solo exhibition, ‘Ground Hero – Portraits of September 11’, was featured by ABC News (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_kwUBjqxF4). Robert’s work has been exhibited internationally and he’s proud to say is archived in the permanent collection of The National Portrait Gallery in London. http://www.npg.org.uk
