Cleveland Photographer Bob Perkoski

Bob Perkoski

For years I have been entrenched in the visual elements of the Rust Belt, documenting everyday life in and around Cleveland through both my personal and professional work. My photo-journalistic style has covered the growth of the city over the past several years during its recent comeback.

I am also the managing photographer for FreshWater Cleveland an online magazine that covers the best of what’s next in Cleveland as well as official photographer for LAND Studio and Le Femme Mystique Burlesque / Ohio Burlesque . My freelance work includes Playhouse Square, Cleveland Public Theater, MOCA, The Port of Cleveland, Belt Magazine , The Sun News and other notable Northeast Ohio organizations. My substantial portfolio includes news coverage, portraiture, commercial imagery and fine art.
