Rebecca Drobis is a Washington DC-based photographer whose images tell human stories. Her photojournalism training instilled in her a keen sense of observation and the ability to capture impactful moments. Rebecca is especially adept at building genuine connections, putting subjects at ease, and capturing the distinctive “ah-ha!" moments that tell the brand or institution's story, with warmth and authenticity.
Rebecca is a proactive and enthusiastic team player. She takes the time to listen and understand her clients’ goals and mission, then fully immerses herself into illustrating their story, campaign or brand. Rebecca's flexible approach allows her to thrive in a variety of scenarios, on short and long-term projects, with "real people" or professional talent, and on large-scale productions or streamlined shoots working alone or with a single assistant.
In addition to client work, Rebecca regularly travels to northern Montana, where she is engaged in an ongoing photographic and video project—Grown Up West—documenting positive stories about young people growing up on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation.
Rebecca has recently launched Custom Stock a new offering for clients who want to tell their unique brand story with one-of-kind images and videos.
