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 for different projects and meeting new people.

I believe the most important part of creating content is connecting to the audience through character development. Whether the character is a pair of shoes, food item, car or human, the story means nothing if you don't care about who's on screen. Onset dynamics, especially between the director and director of photography, can directly affect the final outcome and that is why I value relationships so much.

My process has been to study the masters and their techniques, while combining that with today's tools. I believe in the marriage of science and art.

When not onset, you will find me in the woods hiking, camping or backpacking while perfecting the art of s'mores. 

I am the husband of my college sweetheart and father of my incredible son and sweet daughter.
