Robert Charbonnet was born and raised in New Orleans. His interest in photography started at a young age and was fuelled by growing up in a culturally rich, crazy, borderline lawless, and diverse city.
His interest in beauty started early on from his Mother’s constant involvement in cosmetics and skin care but really strongly took hold when he first moved to London. Taking hold of the newness and experimenting with colors, light, shadow energy, and form developed him into what you see through his works today.
Whomever the subject, he aims to capture their natural energy, beauty, and character. He also enjoys the more polished and contrived aspects of beauty photography, pushing the limits when he can. Regardless of the brief, he always strives for perfection in his images.
Advertising clients have included international brands such as Pantene, Clairol, Dior, Harrods, L’Oreal, P&G, Ponds, and MaxFactor.
Charbonnet currently lives between London and NYC, but dreams of beaches and surfing.
