About Roy

It's good to meet you!

Thank you for visiting!

It's been over 10 years since I started Photography by Roy and I still love my job as much as I did in the beginning. (Thousands of clients served, over 600 newborns and counting!)

My photographic journey started a few years before digital began to transform the industry. Using film was a great way to learn my craft and for personal projects, I sometimes still shoot medium format film.

Since 1999 I've been involved in the photographic industry in one way or another. From working in a lab professionally retouching images, to maintaining an e-commerce site selling photographic gear to working at weddings and events. Each of these jobs has helped me develop skills that I now use on a daily basis.

I consider myself very fortunate to be able to photograph for a living.



My shooting style is always evolving, my preference is to shoot using more natural light and capturing lifestyle portraiture.

Work Ethics & Personality

Easy going yet always after the perfect shot; and always excited to do what I do. I usually book one client per day, and always make sure there is no need to rush during a session. Ask any of my clients and they'll probably tell you my patience and professionalism are what stand out the most.


Under-Promise and Over-Deliver I work hard for each and every one of my clients and I like to think it shows in the results... I try to always go above and beyond what is expected.

Looking forward to working with you! – Roy Somech

The best of the best!

Roy is obviously a very talented photographer, as you can see on the website. What you don't see is how gentle he is with the newborns and how attentive and kind he is to a new mother who is recovering from her delivery. My family and I felt very relaxed and comfortable with Roy and his professionalism and talent is very much appreciated. He's the best of the best!
