About

Bob Cooley has been speaking through imagery for three decades.

His work has appeared widely in publications as varied as Life magazine, Sports Illustrated, The Economist, Forbes, The Washington Post, Policy Review, The Detroit Free Press, Golf Digest, and Weekly Reader. He holds awards from The Michigan State Press Association, The Hoosier State Press Association, The National Press Photographers Association, and the Associated Press. He has created images for book covers for Simon & Schuster and NY Quarterly Books. Bob’s photos have also been used in advertising and marketing for companies including The Coca Cola Company, Herman Miller, Spalding, and Pella Windows.

Bob grew up in southwestern Michigan, where he found his love for visual storytelling. After a decade in the Midwest, he moved to New York City to continue to work creating compelling images, also working as a creative director and communications strategist with a wide range of companies, partnering with them to tell their stories through photography, design and interaction. Bob now lives in Greenwich Village and continues photography work around the United States and abroad.
