Fashion Photographer and Art Director Robert Ector bridges his dexterous understanding of studio photography with his love of bold and provocative street style to create cohesive and visionary masterpieces.
Having been called Personal Photographer and Art Director to iconic stars such as Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Steve Harvey, Serena Williams, & Nicki Minaj, Ector’s eclectic elements of glamour and luxury, deep-rooted in his lighting design have helped cement him as a recognizable talent in the Entertainment and Fashion industry.
With his distinction in taste and observation of detail, Ector's Photography and Art Direction has been seen in numerous National and International campaigns for VOGUE, DISNEY, ABC, TIFFANY & CO, MAC Cosmetics, DAVID YURMAN, AMAZON, VARIETY, NBC, UNIVERSAL MUSIC and many more.
After extensive years abroad in London, Paris and Italy covering the runway shows of top fashion houses HERMES, LOUIS VUITTON, CHRISTIAN DIOR and CHANEL, Ector released his #1 best-selling Art Book, DETAILS | City Streets Are The Real Runways.
This visual and literary piece highlights the World's Most Fashionable People and has since been inducted into Savannah's College of Art & Design's Library of Archives and Special Collections as an educational resource.
In November 2022, the city of Atlanta honored Ector with official legislation recognizing November 5th as Robert Ector Day. This proclamation from Atlanta city councilman Michael Julian Bond, and presented by Mayor Kasim Reed, acknowledges Ector for his contribution to the city of Atlanta through the field of Photography & Video.
With a passion for telling stories through artistry, and enriching the arts community, Robert Ector continues to be a leading force in the creative world.
Ector insists, “There are no rules to Photography. Instead, focus on the qualities that each unique individual brings. Beauty manifests in the subject’s sheer presence and willingness to show up as themselves."
