Hi, I'm Rebekah (Roo)–Photographer, creative director, producer, and owner of Hello Roo.
I was raised in New England and received my BA in Illustration and MS in Photography at Syracuse University.
My career started in fashion at Ralph Lauren where I grew a vast portfolio of original artwork and photography for in-store displays. Everything from a 6-foot canvas painting to perfectly curated photographs and sketches.
Wanting to “do it all” and missing being on set, I pivoted my career and became an in-house producer at the Ralph Lauren advertising agency. There I developed a diverse range of skill sets while producing shoots for the over seven brands under the Ralph Lauren umbrella. I had the honor of working alongside some of the most talented photographers and creative directors in the industry.
Since the launch of Hello Roo in 2017, I've been honored to work with a wide variety of clients on everything from production, photography, and creative development.
Always going the extra mile (pun intended) I have a passion for all things adventure, fitness, and travel related. My years as a competitive runner and now all-around athlete has given me the edge I need to capture moments in some of the most remote locations that are accessible only by foot.
Currently based in Seattle by way of NYC and SF, though my love of travel keeps me working all over the world.
Rebekah was a competitive athlete and
ran D1 track at Syracuse University.
She has traveled to 18 countries and counting.
Her Aussie-doodle is named after
her favorite place in Italy–Ischia.
On the weekend you can find her anywhere from
flea markets to trail running in Washington State.
She has continued to paint on a commissioned basis.
