"I'm the best photographer in the world!" Doesn't that sound impressive? This is the mantra (not my current identity) that drives me in my work. That said, I try to be a different photographer, not necessarily a better one. For me, experimentation and sharing are the master keys for an artist, the tools with which one can develop one's own distinctive style.
My name is Roberto Insalata (better known in Italy as "Bob Salad") and I'm a commercial photographer based in Ancona, Italy. I specialize in women's beauty: private portraits, fashion, skin and hair, lingerie, and swimwear. Though I take pride in my work, I believe that a successful commercial image is the culmination of many talented professionals coming together as a team. Makeup artists, hair stylists, clothing stylists, assistants, and the photographer all work together to create the magic!
I feel very lucky to do what I do. I get to travel, work with beautiful models, interact with interesting and talented artists, blog about my experiences, teach workshops, and publish articles through online and print magazines. I may not be the best photographer in the world, but I feel like I have the best job in the world!
