Rob's style is craftsman chic, it's authentic sophistication, it’s high-end grit.
He’s just as comfortable remodeling his rustic cabins in the mountains as he is shooting an editorial layout for a fashion magazine. No matter what project he’s working on, Rob approaches everything with authenticity. No egos, no diva moments, nothing but hard work, and a passion for capturing those magic images that happen when you’re completely invested in the assignment. Rob has always operated that way, making it look easy for clients and having fun at it for the last 20 years as a photographer and director. Rob lives in North Carolina with his beautiful wife and daughter, many cats, chickens, and their amazing great Pyrenees dogs Nicks and Delilah, as well as Stevie, the smartest English Cream Retriever you’ll ever meet!

"Rob is more than just an iconic coif of hair. He has a way of capturing his audience's raw moments, attitudes, and authentic vibe. He transports you into a culture you may not know in a way where you don't question its authenticity. If he is casting talent or working with the real deal, you'd never know. But what sets Rob apart is once you look past that fluffy do, the motorcycle grease, and copious amounts of PBR, you will see a heart of gold. Adamo captures authentic moments because he is authentic. I enjoyed working with him on a project that involved special needs kids, far from the tattoos and aluminum cans of his more well-known work. And this, my friends, is where Rob truly shines, in my humble opinion. He quickly earned the trust of the families and kids and captured the genuine and very compassionate stories. He brings a get-the-shot-at-all-cost attitude to a shoot, whether it's taking the time to get someone comfortable on camera or putting on a ridiculous set of swim shorts to get closer to the action. Rob will always capture the stills that give you chills and video content that brings you on a journey. He does it all with no ego; that's just big hair up on top. I promise you this. Rob and his entire team are collaborative and very easygoing to work with, resulting in work you will remember for years to come."

"We are thrilled to showcase Rob Adamo's moto image on our summer 2021 AtEdge cover. If the aim of life is to live, Rob's work exudes the enthusiasm to be in the moment fully. We chose this particular photograph as it reflects hope, freedom, and a sense of excitement of what's to come."

"Robert Adamo is an artist with a camera. He sees literally, abstractly and emotively, capturing moments which elicit a visceral response in the viewer. Instinctively finding beauty in the ordinary and the unexpected, his work has grit complemented by surprise. Rob intuitively finds moments many miss, capturing the energy and fluidity of the occasion. The personal connection he builds with his subjects creates a trust and honesty that comes to life with a unique and believable authenticity that draws the viewer in and touches them emotionally. Having worked with Rob for over ten years, I can tell you this guy has heart and never says uncle."
Susan Mower, Art Director at Nevada Division of Tourism
“We are so excited to have you back with us again. The work you did for us is probably the best we’ve ever had and everyone absolutely loves everything. Looking forward to another wonderful shoot."
