“Seeing Montana” by Robert Farber

“To me this image has special meaning. It’s an image of someone I was very close to. She took me back to her roots in Kalispell, Montana and that’s where I captured her amongst the land where she was raised. Not only is it a special gallery image, but it’s also in my book ‘Natural Beauty, Farber Nudes'”  By Robert Farber

About Robert Farber

Robert Farber’s global recognition has been established through his books, fine art exhibitions, lectures, TV interviews and award winning advertising campaigns. All in the genres of fashion, beauty, and life style.

Robert Farber’s style has influenced generations of photographers. His painterly, impressionistic style captures the essence of composition in every genre, including nudes, still life, landscapes and architecture. His ten photo art books have sold over half a million copies.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis brought Farber into Doubleday for the publication of his book “By The Sea,” which won the Art Director’s Award for color photography. Aside from numerous creative awards, Robert Farber also received the Photographer of the Year from PMA (Photographic Manufacturers Association), ASP International Award from the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and The American Society of Photographers.

Farber’s work with nudes in fine art as well as in the commercial realm is known and respected.

On Saturday, October 18th we had day two of our first JHP Veterans Photography Program in NJ.  We started the day with Harmon Kaplan and Michael Downey, our photography instructors reviewing some of the basics of operating the Canon EOS Rebels. Next, we took advantage of the studio backdrops that were already set up in our classroom.  Harmon paired up the students to take portraits of each other with the other person’s camera.  This handy concept will allow us to keep track of which photos were taken by which Veterans.  The media card is now identified by name and photo of the Veteran
