Philip Martin Rusch

A photographer that captures personality!

I am a decorated ex US Navy Gulf War photographer veteran. I have photographed on land, underwater and in the air including the use of TARPS (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tactical_Airborne_Reconnaissance_Pod_System Will open in a new tab or window).
I currently photograph international bands, professional portraits (studio and location), advertisement, food as well as events, real estate/architecture (interiors and exteriors - buildings) a bit of fashion and a few weddings. After 26 years behind cameras (pinhole, camera obscura, small, medium, large format and TARPS).
My work is word of mouth only - no business card and no website.
Everyone always asks "Why no website?" WHY you ask? I can post photos to it and you have NO IDEA if I took them or not. I photograph – my reputation via my photos speaks for itself.
How do you KNOW if I am a great photographer or not? Why not ask for references I say! Did I deliver on time? Was I cool? Was I fair in price? Did I offer more than was ever expected? Was I fun? Was I professional?
The answer is YES. I have many repeat customers and international bands (via major record labels/music companies). Just ask and I will give you my references!
A few clients... PEOPLE
Presidents, chancellors, mayors, ministers, lords, admirals, rock stars, a US Supreme Court Justice, Johan Cruyff, etc.

After 26 years, I cannot remember all of my clients. My photos do not appear anywhere unless my client(s) desire that.
I was hired by the World Press Forum (World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers) as their only photographer a few years ago. I have been printed in over 100 international newspapers/magazines/journals around the world as well as a book cover. Locally, in Austria on numerous occasions: Der Standard, Die Presse, FondsMagazin, Kurier, Medianet, Trend, Wirtschaftswoche, Wirtschaftsblatt, Kronen Zeitung and many others - I just cannot recall.
Although I do not exhibit my work, I was invited to show (and sold!) my photos at the ‘Top 100 Austrian Artists’ exhibition in the Museumsquartier in Vienna, Austria in 2010.
English is my mother tongue; I am fluent in German and speak some Spanish. All the best!
