On-assignment. That's how Bob Adler has been photographing so many of our country's most interesting people from his home base of San Francisco since 1984. Taking pictures of high-level executives for clients such as Visa Inc., Oracle Corporation, Sony Entertainment, Scholastic Publishing, Genentech, and Kaiser Permanente, his work has been seen in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Forbes, Profit, Oracle Magazine, People, PR Week and many more.
His subjects range from all walks of life; celebrities, athletes, business leaders and entertainers, bikers, prostitutes, strippers and street people. Whether he’s shooting a business leader like Cisco System's CEO, John Chambers, or an outlaw like Hell's Angels founder, Sonny Barger, his camera finds a way to reveal the common humanity we all share.
Bob's documentary photographs have been exhibited in galleries and published both in the U.S. and internationally. Additionally, photographs from his documentary series The Troc Burlesque Theater are in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Burlesque Hall of Fame.
He is a past Co-President of the Northern California chapter of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), is a member of Editorial Photographers (EP), American Photographic Artists (APA) and is the founder of the online image delivery tool, PixOasis.com.
Bob is based in San Francisco where he lives with his wife and two children. When he's not shooting, you often can find him sailing on San Francisco Bay on his 27 foot sailboat.
