About Me

Photographer

Bob Oei


I’m a portrait photographer, and I’m a cinematographer.

I was born in Texas, but I’ve lived on both coasts.

I originally had a film background and wanted to be the next great cinematographer. I started portrait photography as a way to keep my skills sharp, as taking pictures of friends was easier to do than writing and directing a film every weekend. While my path to becoming a photographer is not the typical journey of most photographers, I feel that it lends a unique perspective and visual style to my images.

I’m based in Boston, MA, but I travel for projects all over. I specialize in portraiture and headshots, as well as branded content for small businesses.
