My name is Robert Voltaire and I am a photographer based out of Los Angeles, CA. I am very fortunate to make my living as a professional fashion photographer. Over the years I have listened to other photographers and models talk about their successes (and failures) and how they got ahead in this business.
All my life I have been inspired by images in movies, art, literature and magazines.
I discovered photography accidentally. A few years ago I received a camera as a Christmas gift. It sat in the box until my birthday when I celebrated with some friends and family at the beach. One friend wanted to become a model and I shot a roll of film and handed it to her. A week later she was picked up by Ford and I was approached by an agent to test models.

My work has been published by magazines worldwide including: GQ, Esquire, Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Max, Playboy and others.
People email me daily asking questions on how to succeed or how to make money as a photographer or model or to help them along with their craft. So, I set this blog up to help you do just that!
