A visionary artist originally from the rustic last frontier of Northern Canada, Rob Gilbert has transformed the photographic world with his iconic portraits of massive global figures such as Bill Clinton, Justin Trudeau, and Amal Clooney.
His life began in a log cabin on three hundred acres of land, living off of the fish and wildlife his father hunted, while his mother raised a family of twelve children. Gilbert embraced the rural existence discovered by his parents, both European immigrants who were seeking the adventure of a life where self-reliance and the ability to survive became the norm.
Gilbert’s journey took him to Vancouver, where his interest in photography led to stints as an assistant with some of the greatest photographers Canada has produced. His foray into portraiture over sixteen years includes a client base of the world’s top leaders in their respective fields—television stars, film stars, political world leaders, and billionaire philanthropists.
Constantly travelling the planet, in 2015 Gilbert worked in New York, Los Angeles, London, Berlin, and Dubai. His photographic style is noted for world-class lighting and an amazing ability to direct talent of all backgrounds.
