Further more...

Rom considers himself as an artist. He explores different avenues of art expression. His Headshots are just part and parcel of his artistry. He has a collection of Australian landscapes in his portfolio which he shot while living and studying down under for several years. He is also a collector and hobbyist who, on his free time collects toys and pop culture collectibles and dabbles in wildlife photography. He once won a Photography contest in Australia using only a point and shoot camera. He was able to explore all sorts of Photography niches while in Australia and in Los Angeles, due mostly to his work as an in-house photographer. But it is in New York, when he met Peter Hurley in one of the  conferences he attended, that he decided he would specialize in Headshots and Portraits Photography. Rom loves taking photos of people’s faces because it expresses the theological and philosophical concept he holds about the likeness of man’s image of the Divine. He sees every subject of his photography as an image of a higher being, therefore all is beautiful and unique in their own beautiful way.
