Welcome to Robert P. Ruschak Fine Art Photography. The work here is collected from my over 30 years of still photography.

My primary love is photography as a fine art. I had already entered, and won, photography competitions before studying and receiving a BA in Photography as a Fine Art, cum laude, from Point Park University in 1984. I have always tried to approach my commercial photography with the same consideration, and attention to detail that I do with my art photography. My work has been included in numerous regional exhibits and some national and international ones, and I have had my work published in books, magazines, and wall calendars both nationally and internationally.

All work in the galleries is available for sale and use. I will make original silver gelatin prints of all black and white photographs. I am also producing fine art giclee prints of both black and white images and color.I am comfortable working with galleries, art consultants, interior designers, art directors, graphic designers and individuals. No request is too small, and I enjoy the challenge of the big ones.
