Rob Foldy's unique perspective and strong attention to detail set his images apart. Creating premium imagery is not only about having the equipment, understanding the subject and researching the needs; it's also about finding the nuances before and after a moment that show the viewer a perspective they have never seen. In addition to serving as the team photographer for the Miami Marlins, Rob's career has grown to serve other advertising and marketing agencies, professional sports teams, and top-tier wire services both across the U.S. and globally, most notably including Getty Images, the Miami DolphinsNike, Red BullBeats by Dre, Game Seven Marketing, Lead Dog MarketingESPN and Sports Illustrated. Other clients include Lexus, Audi, the Associated Press, USA Today, and the University of Florida, with work featured in magazines, on websites, used on television programs, and in advertising and social media campaigns all over the world.

Rob also loves connecting with other photographers and has appeared multiple times on The Grid and contributed to Scott Kelby's Photoshop Insider Blog, originally writing about Creating a Unique Image, again on his experiences photographing portraits of the Miami Heat players, and most recently shared an entry entitled When The Little Moments Reveal The Bigger Picture.
