Roger Cabello, born in Lima Peru in 1963.
He was introduced to photography by his father, who encouraged him as a child to shoot the local soccer players in Lima.
In 1978, he moved to Queens NY where he attended Forest Hills High School. After graduating from FIT in 1985 with a degree in Photography, he found work shooting black & white ads for local retailers in Greenwich Village, all the while assisting established still-life photographers, honing his work ethic and own unique style.
His first editorial break came with Lucy Sisman for GQ. Soon followed by American Vogue, working with Candy Pratts Price under the direction of Raul Martinez. Other clients soon followed.
A few years later, he started working with Deanna Fillipo, Design Director at Allure Magazine, with whom he embarked on a close collaboration that has lasted over a decade, producing the work for which Roger is best known – lush and vibrant cosmetic compositions that emphasize texture, form, and pigment.
He became the principal cosmetic photographer at Allure and his work has been published in Allure for the last 14 years.
Other publications that Roger has worked for include Allure Russia, China Vogue, Glamour USA, Harper's Bazaar USA, Wired and others.
Roger’s attention to detail, sensitivity to color, and inventive use of light has been called upon by major beauty brands including Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Michael Kors and Sephora and Avon.
His unique ability to successfully merge his signature vision with his clients’ needs continues to impress industry decision-makers worldwide.
