Photography Philosophy

Tell the story is the number one priority of Rosh’s photography. Although Rosh has his own style he is well versed in multiple photographic techniques and lets the vision of the client and the scene in front of him dictate how he approaches the creation of a photograph. 

Some scenes require more intervention, while others need a let it happen approach. Rosh starts with few or no lights to see and understand the environment. He then gradually adds lights one at time until he achieves the look and feel necessary to tell the story and create his clients vision. Generally, one or two lights is all that is required.

Working with Rosh

Rosh is easy to work with and is known for working at a productive pace without loosing quality and creativity in his imagery.

He understands that his job is to create photographic images that make you look good for selecting him as your photographer.

Rosh works well on location.  He usually travels light, but works with a full crew when the assignment demands it.  Executives and business owners are busy people. Many of his executive portraits are taken on location  in boardrooms and corporate offices with limited time available. Keeping his equipment flexible and light allows him to work quickly.

On all assignments Rosh starts with one light and builds the set around the main strobe.  Some images work best with only one light source while other  images require multiple supporting lights and reflectors.

Sometimes it is easier to meet at a central location and Octane Photographic Studio is available when needed.  Octane is minutes from the intersection of I-696 and I-75 in Ferndale Michigan. It is a full service studio complete with a dressing room, work areas, wi-fi and Kitchen.

After Rosh takes your image he will edit the files and display them on a personal web preview page.  Once you select your images the photographs will be uploaded to a gallery at photoshelter.com for you to download at your convenience.  Regular clients may keep their images in the gallery as an archive.

For large groups of people an e-commerce photographic gallery can be created so each subject can pay for their own images.  The system may also be set up to download digital photographic files or order custom photographic prints or products.

Rosh will invoice clients via Email after the delivery of the images.  The Rosh Group, Inc. accepts checks, cash and major credit cards.  Rosh can accept credit cards on location when appropriate.

Photography Pricing

Rosh Sillars photographs are license according to the laws of the United States.  He offers flexible photographic use options and is willing to work with his clients to create the best plan for their needs.
