Local photographer gets
New Braunfels resident Robert Fletcher was recently notified that his photographs would be included in the upcoming edition of the Stock Workbook. The Stock Workbook, an image catalogue with national distribution, is referred to as the “Mother of All Source Workbooks” within the photo industry. Containing 2,500 images from photographers across the United States, this workbook (on photo CD) is used by publishers, advertising agencies and others as a source of photographs fa bodes, album covers, textbooks, travel brochures and other commercial applications. “Aft the images were taken in the New Braunfels or Canyon Lake area and include such things as the Guadalupe River, an old, closed gas station with die pump showing 39 ceras, antique bottles and others,” Fletcher said.
He is represented by die TexStock Photo Inc. stock photography agency of Houston. His association with this agency shows that a little luck never hurts. Robert met die research editor of the agency while on die beach in Honolulu. “We chatted and die subject of photography came up. She (the editor) told me to submit a portfolio for review after I retired. I did and soon had a contract with the agency. Stock photographs, such as these images, are na normally big revenue producers, but the exposure is invaluable in this particular market segment.”
Robert moved to New Braunfels after retiring from active duty with die U.S. Navy in 1994, following a career in signals intelligence. “New Braunfels receives very favorable exposure in a variety of retirement literature as ap affordable location and a wonderful pig(^|jgtgggfc children in a sale environment. I spent two weeks here in 1993 on my way back to Honolulu from Washington, D.C., and fell in love with the place,” Fletcher said. “I told my wife this was the place to retire and she agreed to move here, sight unseen, with us knowing absolutely no one.”
A first (dace award in a local photography contest in Honolulu and a first place award at the 1994 Wuistfest Ait Show have encouraged Fletcher. “In my last year of active duty, I was on shore dray assigned to the staff of
the Commander in Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet in Pearl Harbor. I had time to shoot a few weddings and portraits, mostly fa friends. Things got serious when my wife and I put together portfolios for working models, one of whom was a cast member of the ABC series ‘Birds of Paradise,’ sha on location in Hawaii.” Fletcher credits local business people such as Ed and Billie Miles, Esther Headrick, Wayne Reeh and Pat and Connie Miller as providing invaluable advice or inspiration in pursuing his goal. “Coming from a military background, I realized that what works successfully on a 9,600-ton destroyer may na work well in a non-military environment. New Braunfels has a very pro-business atmosphere; all you need to do is be able to work hard, smart and take advantage of opportunities.”
“I came into photography late and my part-time work at Linda Fao is getting me on step, from a technical
point of view, and polishing customer relation skills,” he said. “Wayne Reeh (Landa Fao) and Pat Miller (Seidel Camera) are very savvy business people and possess a wealth of technical knowledge and experience anyone who is serious about photography can use. They are a photographer’s best asset in New Braunfels.”
Fletcher’s work can be seen in the current edition of “Prosit” magazine and the Had Faust’s new brochure and post card. He has collaborated on projects for the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce, the Hummel and Sophienburg museums, the Greene General Stat and others. He also prepared the portfolio for an aspiring local model fa the K-Hall Modeling Agency in Austin.
He is married to the former Marie Olivares of Roswdl, NX. They have two children, Rebecca and Samantha, who attend die New Braunfels Middle School and OakRun.
