Roger Paperno's grandmother gave him a Kodak Instamatic 124 Camera for his seventh birthday - and he was hooked. In fact, he's been so busy he hasn't had time to send her a proper thank you note; he's working on it though. Whether its reportage work at birthday parties or advertising jobs in remote corners of the world, he tries to see things in their true light. He shows the inner beauty and simplicity of form that is present in everything, from a Parisian in a smokey cafe to a cruise ship in the Panama Canal.
"Working on location is a source of excitement for me. I love trying to overcome and solve the zillion little challenges that are encountered in the real world. My goal is for you to feel that my photo is real, not staged and that you, the viewer, are a part of it."
Recently I have joined forces with a Producer friend in H_Wood and we have 2 major films about to go into production and I am also working on developing a TV drama.
