Tell the story is the number one priority of Rosh’s photography. Although Rosh has his own style, he is well versed in multiple photographic techniques and often lets the vision of the client or the scene around him dictate how he approaches the creation of a photograph.

Some scenes require more creative intervention, while others need a let it happen approach. Rosh starts with few or no lights to understand the environment. He then gradually adds lights one at a time until he achieves the look and feel necessary to tell the story to create his client's vision.
