Nice article today in the NY Times called "Hudson Valley Views" about several scenic hikes in the Hudson Valley, many of which I have hiked and photographed over the years. Included are Mt Beacon and Burger Hill Park, both of which are Scenic Hudson properties. They even mentioned my favorite breakfast/lunch stop in town, Homespun Foods! These are all great…
The Beekman Street Banners were unveiled this weekend in my home of Beacon, NY, and I’m honored to have been chosen as one of 34 artists to be included in this innovative and unique project. The official description from a new website dedicated to all things cool in Beacon reads:
“17 banners leading up from the Beacon Train Station to Main Street shops, eats and art, celebrating 34 local artists who place Beacon on the larger map of all things cool”.
After finally seeing the banners in person, they are very cool!
A few weeks ago I was featured in a newspaper article by the Mid-Hudson Times about my photography and exhibition at the RiverWinds Gallery in Beacon. I never actually saw the article because the newspaper is not distributed on my side of the Hudson River, but I managed to get the text from the writer Matt Frey who also interviewed me for the article.

Edges of Light features the works of longtime photographer Robert Rodriguez, Jr. Rodriguez attempts to capture on camera those fleeting moments when light, land and color combine for the greatest emotional impact. He feels that color and light have a great amount of symbolism inherent in them, and when combined correctly, they form some of the greatest artistic opportunities known to man. This philosophy, combined with other aspects of nature like weather fronts going coming in or going out and different landscapes, is what Rodriguez has built his photographic career around.
Riverwinds Gallery has placed an advertisement in the July/August 2007 issue of InsideOut Hudson Valley magazine featuring one of my images "Highlands Sunset". Considering they told me it was the most expensive ad they've ever placed, and the wide range of art and artists they had to choose from, I was quite honored and appreciative of their selection. The issue…
One of my images, "Drop on Leaf", was used on ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday October 5 by interior decorator Eduardo Xol during his special on decorating your home for the fall season. This photo will also be used in our upcoming fall and winter inspired greeting cards.
