My name is Rob Ruscher and I am a passionate, creative, and driven Cinematographer based in Pittsburgh, PA. My favorite part of this career is traveling all over the country and meeting new people. I reguraly speak at art schools, colleges, trade shows, and host a podcast to continue my growth as a cinematographer and give back to those in the field.

As a cinematographer I've had the chance to travel all over the country telling stories, working with amazing people, and creating some unforgettable memories. I fell in love with operating cameras and using the latest technology to do so. This passion led me to the MōVI which I dove into head first.
I've used this tool to shoot cars, sports, narratives, and commercials. It's given me the opportunity to team up with amazing directors and fellow cinematographers. Beyond that I've been able to create shots for budgets that used to not allow that. Remote control hood mount, Jib off a UTV, running car footage with nothing but a mini van to name a few of my favorites. I love hearing a director's vision and coming up with a way to pull it off with the resources we have.
When not onset, you will find me in the woods hiking, camping or backpacking while perfecting the art of s'mores. When traveling the first thing I research is where to eat and where to find the best cup of coffee.
I am the husband of my college sweetheart and father of my incredible son and sweet daughter.
