“I don’t shoot food porn, for me it is a love affair. It’s all about creating a real emotional bond between the viewer and the food.”

Looking at his works, we start to see a ‘food film’ as a truly autonomous genre. His original, individual and passionate approach towards filming food has revolutionised the industry and made new paths for table top storytelling. 
Robert has created so many delicious food documentaries and magical commercials that we lost the count long time ago. He has worked with the biggest brands on the market including BBC Food Network, Nestle, Lidl, McDonalds as well as celebrities such as Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey and Mel Gibson. He feels equally comfortable and passionate about filming live action – people’s emotions, reactions, tensions as the beauty of the food itself. 
Robert says he can’t live without two things: water and wine. Water for life, and wine for pleasure.
