Robert Seale is an award-winning Houston commercial photographer who creates heroic portraits and other memorable photography and video for corporations, health care systems, universities, and advertising agencies.
Seale is known for his technical ability, graphic eye, photographic lighting skills, and visual problem solving. Whether photographing a celebrity athlete, a CEO, or someone with less experience in front of the camera, he quickly puts his subjects at ease to evoke the best images. He is equally adept at coaxing multiple creative concepts from a single location with limited time, meeting the needs of his clients while staying on schedule.
Seale has leveraged his visual ability to become an expert in industrial photography and video for oil and gas clients. This work affords worldwide opportunities to move seamlessly from the boardroom to the helipad, transforming hard-to-photograph refineries, plants, labs, and drilling rigs into beautiful graphic art for some of the world’s leading brands.
Similarly, his strong work ethic shines through in his corporate photography and video for annual reports, magazines, and digital content for leading health care institutions and universities, where his images capture the resilience of patients, the innovation of health care professionals, and the generosity of philanthropists.
As an annual report and advertising photographer, Robert has worked on projects for ExxonMobil, Chevron, Phillips 66, ConocoPhillips, Schlumberger, Aramco Americas, Anadarko, Baker Hughes GE, BP, EOG Resources, XTO, GMC, BMW, Invesco, Huntsman, Marathon, Major League Baseball, NBA, Pepsi, Gatorade, Reebok, Houston Methodist Hospital, UTHealth Houston, Memorial Hermann, MD Anderson Cancer Center, Under Armour, and various professional sports teams.
His editorial credits include Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine, Men’s Health, SLAM, Businessweek, Guideposts, Forbes, Fortune, Barron’s, GOLF Magazine, Smithsonian, Air & Space, AARP, The New York Times Magazine, and over 200 covers of The Sporting News.
