Robert Monteleone APP
Robert's first encounter with photography was at around the age of eleven, with a Kodak film camera. It sparked a passionate interest in creative photography that he still possesses decades later. At high school, Robert was eager to learn more about the art, and studied photography and film developing as an elective subject. With a much better understanding of the basics, Robert upgraded to a 35mm (film) camera and an external flashgun.
In his late teens, he was accepted into Adelaide University where he studied Music, Drama, Media and Film technology. It was at this time that Robert purchased his first SLR film camera and Super 8 Movie Camera, and began shooting weddings and other events. After graduating with a Bachelor of Education Degree, he took up a teaching position at Thomas More College in South Australia. He remained there for 9 years, but after going on Long Service Leave did not return, taking up a Business Marketing position in the private sector.
Robert was employed by an importing company with wholesaling, distribution and retail interests. Daily tasks included commercial , advertising and corporate photography, as well as computer graphics artwork. His position allowed him extensive creative freedom, and projects included designing the company’s award winning website, designing and photographing an array of retail product brochures, posters, printed press releases with images, preparing magazine advertisements, and contributing photography and content to various national magazines.
Robert produced a popular annual automotive publication "CAR TOYS", distributed by Gordon & Gotch with a print run of up to 15,000 copies per year, and sold throughout newsagents nationally. He wrote the content and designed the layout, and shot most of the photographs. The photography for the early publications was shot on 35mm film transparencies, but as digital cameras evolved, Robert eventually used Digital SLR cameras exclusively. The Australian Automotive Aftermarket Association (A.A.A.A.) judged Robert's CAR TOYS publication Australia's Best Automotive Retail Catalogue in 1996, 1997, 1998, 2001 & 2002.
In late 2006 the company was sold and Robert left to pursue other interests and work for himself. He has photographed and filmed many special events over the years, and his fastidious nature and meticulous attention to detail, together with his artistic creativity endows him with unique, elegant and contemporary photographic skills.
