Rouxby didn’t start with a photography class or a well documented business plan or even with a proverbial light bulb. It began with a puppy, whose acquisition suddenly awakened in me an insane, impossible-to-ignore urge to have a camera in my hands at all times. That puppy was Roux (pronounced Roo), whose nickname has always been Rouxby (pronounced Ruby, it’s confusing, I know), and whose nickname became the namesake of this company. It seemed only fair.
What began as a quest to document other people’s dogs for them in the way I always knew I wanted mine documented has since turned into a full-fledged photography business, one that has required well documented business plans and (a lot of) proverbial light bulbs. I have come to understand that all the reasons I wanted to photograph my puppy four years ago are the same reasons my clients hire me: it’s about documenting your story. We seem to inherently understand that our time here is brief, our most treasured moments briefer still, and that brevity makes documenting your story all the more paramount. My job is to help you do that.
It is nothing short of a great pleasure and a great honor to work with the lovely people I work with. Looking at my work as a collective body is the reminder I sometimes need that dealing with taxes and invoices and working seven days a week is worth it.
