Hi! I am Roosevelt “Roo” Castro, fashion and beauty photographer based in Philadelphia.
I was born in the Dominican Republic and subsequently raised in the Bronx, New York. Now based in Philadelphia, PA.
I discovered my passion for photography at the age of 17, originally I set out to be a graphic designer but destiny had other plans. It all started in design school, I was given the opportunity to take a photography class as an elective. Two weeks later I dropped the class. As I found my self with a brand new camera, I decided to at least have fun and learn the basics. However over time, the camera became an extension of myself, and I became fascinated with concept of freezing a moment in time. Furthermore, through combining the camera and graphic design background I developed a passion for photography. Since then I have continued to study in order to refine and elevate my craft as a professional photographer.
