Robert John

Robert has been a professional photographer in the entertainment industry since 1982, starting out by shooting W.A.S.P., London, LA Guns and Hollywood Rose. When the latter became Guns N' Roses, I worked with them and became their exclusive photographer when the band was signed to Geffen Records.

His list of clients spans the 1980s, 1990s and today, including Guns N' Roses, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Backstreet Boys, Rolling Stones, The Cult, Aerosmith, Jane's Addiction, Faith No More, Marilyn Manson, Motörhead, and Sepultura, as well as many models and actors in entertainment (eg. William Shatner, Power Rangers, Christina Applegate, Leah Cevoli, Susie Owens).

Robert tries to capture the emotion of rock n' roll in my images and artwork. He developed his own techniques and style that uses light, shadows, grain and contrast.

His photography and artwork can be seen on numerous album covers and liners, and has graced the covers and pages of domestic and international magazines including Rolling Stone, Rip, Kerrang, Spin, AP, Revolver, HITS, Guitar World, Hamilton This Month, Guitarist, Hard Rock, Raw, Music Life, Hard Break, In Rock, Popgear, Suosikki, Grindhouse, Terrorizer, Metal Edge, Metal Hammer, and many more. Robert has worked with many record labels including Geffen, Sony BMG, Universal, Warner Brothers, Interscope, Atlantic, Virgin, Island, Capitol, Columbia, RCA, Electra, EMI, SPV, Century Media, Metal Blade, etc.

Robert's most recent video projects include video footage for Motörhead's Stage Fright DVD, live video footage for Sepultura, and promo videos for Class Of Zero, Murder Room, and Jack Dill and Ooze's Cootie Pool.
